FIGHTCLUB welcomes our Friends, Family and Fans from around the world to our Indiegogo campaign.
For those of you who may not know me, I am Aaron Samuel Hagar and I am embarking on a historical journey in the music industry and need your help. I have formed a band of “son’s of rock” of legendary greats. The members of FIGHTCLUB are the children of local bay area rockers that have a lifetime of friendship and professional heritage together, all of which you probably know. This concept has never purely been fulfilled by anyone that I know of and we are looking to break new ground in a highly competitive industry.
I formed FIGHTCLUB, a band consisting of friends and family in an effort to provide an opportunity for us to endeavor our musical careers, and to fulfill a demand from the fans to continue and carry on the “rock” music torch on behalf of our families. So begins the history of FIGHTCLUB and by becoming a FIGHTCLUB supporter through Indiegogo you will become a part of our musical history too! Our first rule of FIGHTCLUB:….. TALK ABOUT FIGHTCLUB!
Unlike the perception you may expect, we do not share in the lifestyle and success of our parents. We need your help to fulfill this dream. Our parents have worked long and hard to achieve their “rock” status. Today, they are well-respected and many were pioneers in the industry. It only makes sense that we also earn our stripes and our own successes. So we are embarking on an effort to raise funds for the recording, marketing and distribution of our debut album.
All of the members of FIGHTCLUB have contributed in writing a large collection of songs for this recording production. Being the sons of rock legends, we understand that there are high expectations for our debut album and our intent is to deliver! The plan and goal is to record and produce with professional teams from studio to production with management and marketing all striving for the best end product possible. We are working with teams that are industry professionals, who are mentors that we trust with our talent, our careers and our friendships. Your support to FIGHTCLUB will be instrumental in the recording production completion which is always challenging when trying to coordinate the expenses of music production, but also the time, efforts and travel of the entire band. We have all been around the business for our entire lives and understand the sacrifices and are making the commitments that it takes to journey into this arena of music history.
Built on the dream I had to create FIGHTCLUB, my family, friends and colleagues believe in and are entrusting my vision to procure a successful future in music. All of the members of FIGHTCLUB are students and teachers in the industry, and individually we have all been making our own way – slowly and honorably. Collectively, we feel we are an explosive entity that can make a difference and it is time for us to take this opportunity to make our own mark in the world of music and step out of the shadows of our parents. So without further adieu, let me introduce you to this talented and exciting band called FIGHTCLUB.
FIGHTCLUB – THE BAND
Spearheading FIGHTCLUB is me, Aaron S. Hagar on vocals. I live in South Lake Tahoe, CA as an owner and operator of a hot rod and classic car shop (Rat Runners Garage), as well as, moonlight as an artist and illustrator.
My brother, Andrew S. Hagar is on rhythm guitar, vocals, percussion and piano. Andrew is a full- time trainer in MMA in the style of Muay Thai. He also teaches privately and lives in Southern CA. We are the sons of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar. Legendary frontman of Montrose, HSAS, Van Halen and currently Chickenfoot.
Miles Schon is on lead guitar and vocals. Miles is a full-time music teacher living in the bay area. He is the son of Journey founder and guitarist Neal Schon. Between Neal and Dad, they have sold over 250 million records worldwide! They have worked together since the beginning of their careers, formed HSAS together and currently continue to work together on a sidebar project “Planet US”.
Ry Kihn is also on lead guitar and vocals. Ry is a full-time music teacher and lives in the San Jose area. Ry is the son of 70’s and 80’s pop icon Greg Kihn. With hits like “Jeopardy” and “The Breakup Song”, Greg has earned his stripes in creating some of the iconic anthems and videos of the 80’s. Greg, Sammy and Neal are bay area legends, as well as global music legends. Greg currently is the voice of Bay Area radio KFOX and they continue to jam together at charities and other events.
Trevor William Church is on bass, guitar and vocals. Trevor teaches music part-time and shares a full-time job as a Redken Master Specialist @ Moxie Hair Studio in Fresno, CA. Trevor is the son of bassist Bill Church. Bill was the iconic bass notes of Van Morrison, Montrose and was with Sammy until Van Halen. They are currently touring together as part of Dad’s “4 Decades of Rock” tour.
Tony Montanez is on drums and percussion. Tony teaches music at Fresno State full-time and has played with Trevor for years. Forming a solid rhythm union with Trevor, he is a welcomed member of the band. Keeping a strong bond between drums and bass is crucial, and although he is not of the same lineage of the rest of the band members, his relationship with Trevor is unbreakable.
AND, as a bonus, we are documenting everything from day one in hopes of sharing this amazing story in a documentary TV show. As you might imagine, living life with our parents and in the families of rock legends, we have so many amazing experiences and stories to share. The number one question we are always asked is; “So, what is it like being the son of …”
Now, we will be able to share with our Friends and Fans, a piece of the past and a brand new beginning in this full exposure, multi-media experience. After the album is completed, we will release it on iTunes, and if demand is persistent, we will release a physical CD and begin a debut tour. We will also be making a video of our first single. In the ever advancing world of music and technology, we are hybrids. FIGHTCLUB has a unique origin with reverence to the tradition of the sound and roots of our parents, while drawing from our compounded knowledge of the world of music and incorporating our individual music styles, we are the sound of rock future. We are eager and excited to share our voice, vision and sound with you!
