The Late Nights
When Jonathan and Michael were college roommates, they stayed up all night playing music. Their neighbors weren't cool with it, but you're probably cooler than they were.
With Tim (from LA band Angelou) bringing the drum virtuosity, The Late Nights brings the classic piano rock sound for the modern age. Influences? Mysterious bars, lonely street lamps, smokey jazz clubs, and the sound of birds chirping under a sunrise when you suddenly realize you've been up all night. Oh, and Billy Joel.
Fresh and unmistakably original, The Late Nights invites you to rock from dusk to dawn.

If reviewers such as Hollywood Digest, Dancing About Architecture, Indie Pulse Music, Woke Chimp, and Vents Magazine provide any indication, the Southern California rock group Dizzy Box Nine uses elements of “innate intuition” to create “amphetamine-fueled” music that is “invigorating and moving” and blends “West Coast punk/rock charm” with “80s new wave,” “pop-punk,” and “alt-rock” stylistics, creating “authentic” music that is “warm like the Venice Beach sidewalks” which at times creates a “Svengali-like hold on the listener.” Dizzy Box Nine has been compared to bands such as theCars, the Police, Green Day, Jimmy Eat World, Tom Petty, RHCP, and MXPX.
And yet, Dizzy Box Nine has created its own signature sound that is unique and stands on its own, and their songs have been described as “catchy,” “well- written,” and “memorable.”
The band was created in the summer of 2016 by singer-guitarist Randy Ludwig, and features guitarist Tony Robles and drummer Amos Przekaza. “I like making music that feels good to listen to, but I also want to challenge the listener at the same time,” Randy says.
