About the Band:

Defined by the heavier edge of rock, The Ominous have never forgotten their roots, it is what drives them to create heavy, yet melodic, original music with a dark subject matter, reflecting on life’s harsh realities

‘Proud To Wear It Loud’, they bring a high energy show that will leave you wanting more.

Lead Guitar – Dave Severson

Born and raised in Southern California, when the best eras of rock and roll ruled the airwaves.

From day one music was undeniable in spirit but it was the sound of the Guitar in particular that would be a driving force. Although influenced emotionally by many great Guitarists, there was no desire to become a clone technically… but to choose a path less traveled, shaping the terrain that would become his own.

Singer – John Mark (Rico) EnRico
