“It’s hard to believe that you are only three guys up there making all that music!” The Ventura County hard rock power trio Black Dragon hears this a lot. With Dave Morello on drums, Steven Charles on bass and Sean O’Donnell on guitar & vocals, the band gives a live performance suitable for all ages that gets fists pumping, people dancing and heads bobbing in rhythm to the music. The original songs played by these three experienced musicians combine elements from the past, present and even the future of music. The combination of powerful drumming, solid bass and stylish guitar coupled with soaring vocals allows Black Dragon to blend styles from different genres so subtly that the listener will discover something new every time they hear one of the band’s tunes.

Black Dragon has headlined and performed as a supporting act at clubs, festivals and also provided entertainment at fundraising events. They are also two time winners at the Ventura County Music Awards, voted “Best Rock Band” in 2016 and “Song of the Year – ‘Not Another One’ in 2017. The band approaches live performances with a professionalism you can rely on show after show. Black Dragon engages the audience, assures the promoter and leaves everybody wanting more.
