Eldorado Collective

Founded at Eldorado Skatepark in Long Beach, as a group who was looking to jam together and create music. We have been gigging around Long Beach since 2014. Working on recording, we have made a name for ourselves by performing live music with art displays in bars and venues in Long Beach and various other LA/OC areas. First we are a band of musicians while skateboarding is first love for the majority members of the band. The “Collective” comes from the idea of fusing the MUSIC, ART, SKATEBOARDING, PHOTOGRAPHY etc. into one outlet. It is simply an idea, a dream of ours.  An extension of the band is visual artists, photographers and cinematographers, many of whom are also old friends from El Dorado park. We have and continue to grow together while supporting each other in our efforts to make it. Long Beach is a city that recognizes Skateboarding and has many great skate parks in town with “Eldo” being one of the first parks Mike Donelon helped create. We recognize skateboarding as an Art.

In our days of skating all day, everyday our Bass player and Visual Artist, Jason Tobin once mentioned “Skateboarding is an Art. Envision the skateboard as a pencil, a brush; and the city, your local skate park, even a red curb, is your blank canvas, where you are free to express yourself”. The music we play is mainly instrumental music. Heavy emphasis on the groove-jazz influences. We intend to inspire, spread light and love through the music and visual arts and to simply show “it can be done”. We are fascinated by the heart, spirit and our subconscious minds. We intend to give something pure and raw, honest and unfiltered from the wellsprings of creativity. We are abstract artists that love Jazz, Funk, Latin jazz, Soul, and the Blues. Spontaneous improvisation and composition that tells a story through the music and art. The legend of Eldorado goes way back in human history and we are aware that it’s a common name but it’s not about a city of gold for us, but the paradise we all have within ourselves and through each other.
