Sleazy began way back in 09, as a rock and roll heavy punk band with a bluesy twist and a twisted sense of humor.
In the beginning it was Manny shredding the guitar, Mindee pounding the drums, and Bryan grooving on the bass. The 3 piece recorded a nice little demo, including the hit “Chicks with Dicks,” a master piece about life and love sung by Bryan.
After bassist Bryan left the band in 2010, Desire joined the fun, keeping things sleazy. They triumphed onward, not even taking off Christmas Eve from their touring schedule. Soon they could be heard on the radio, somewhere and somehow.
Summer of 2012 Sleazy hit the studio to record their first release “Bad Things Just Happen.” Recorded at Laundry Room Recording Studios with talented Punk Rock Engineer Extreme Uly Noriega. The self released 3 song EP features “Communist Picnic,” “Aids Tax,” and “Green Powered Energy,” the bands musical expression of their love of marijuana.
In 2014, bassist Altair stepped up to bring extra energy and his suave style to the group. Since then Sleazy has been busy writing new tunes for an upcoming release, and playing shows throughout the Los Angeles area.
Sleazy has an unique sound that combines numerous styles and allows them to sneak onto a variety of musical bills. Punk, thrash, hardcore, rock n roll, blues, alternative, garage, surf. There is a touch of it all in their signature sound.
Sleazy is all about the live show. Drummer Mindee has a magical mesmerizing style and plays with power and passion at every event. Altair is a smooth and skilled bassist who adds a unique suave style with grooving bass lines the keep things driving…and he looks cool too. Manny has been perfecting his lighting fast solos for years and his widespread style combines influences from blues and rock and roll, to punk rock and thrash. He is a wiz at catchy driving chord progressions, and a master of attention getting solos. His deep, powerful and gritty vocals blend perfectly into their thrashy, bass heavy sound, complimented by lyrics and subject matter not often touched upon by mainstream musical groups.
Dangerously Sleazy excite passion, laughter, and embarrassment into the hearts of those who dare listen to their catchy stoner tunes.
