Still working on that hot first release.



Dinosaur Parade consists of Michael Hardman (lead vocals), James Ruvalcaba (lead guitar), Anthony Prochaska (bass) and Brittany Riffe-Ries (drums).  Although not all from the Los Angeles area, Southern California has definitely made its influence on Dinosaur Parade's sound.  Their musical influences range from Southern-California-indie-rock to the bands that carry an Americana sound. Upon listening to Dinosaur Parade, one can note the indie folk influences with the delicate yet powerful vocals of Riffe-Ries accompanying the dynamic voice of Hardman.  The eclectic combination of genres within their music makes sense when knowing where the members are from: Ruvalcaba is from LA, Hardman is from England, Riffe-Ries is from West Virginia, and Prochaska is from Texas.  Every member brings their own style of playing and singing to the band that makes the ultimate product truly unique.  With Los Angeles being the melting pot of rock inspiration, Dinosaur Parade exude the perfect blend of just that.


The band formed in January 2014 after Ruvalcaba sought LA-based musicians to begin work on an indie project. Hardman was the first onboard, with the twosome writing songs until Riffe-Ries and Prochaska joined and finalized the tour de force that is now Dinosaur Parade.  


Performing in venues in the LA-area since June 2014 (including Sunset Strip's House of Blues), the band have received public acclaim enough to encourage the recording of an anticipated EP that will be released in February of 2015.
