This is a video of Jonathan Velasquez’s new band “reVolt”. They are playing at the Stardust Bar in Downey, CA at the beginning of 2012. Jonathan started a mini-riot out of nothing but playing. His charisma reminded me of Jim Morrison of The Doors at The Whisky in 1966.
You might remember Jonathan as the star of my film Wassap Rockers (2005). He was only 15 years old then. I discovered him in South Central Los Angeles walking down the street.
reVolt is playing regularly around L.A. and you should catch them now.
