Biography

We are Golden Child and The Good Guys, a Reggae/ska sound. The band started with just Erick Macias and David Benitez jamming together. Erick playing bass and David on guitar. Shortly after, having Eddie Hester on the kit. Our first show was the 2009 Yuma Sun Battle of the Bands. Taking second place we were very excited and decided that we should keep the band going. After a few shows we made our first demo. With Erick jumping on rhythm guitar we brought in Chase Rosas to thump the bass. Soon following we got Devin Alvarez playing the congas. With our band full we started playing more shows, mostly at the local skate park, and recorded a new demo.

Then one day visiting a new R&B lounge one of the bar managers recognized Eddie from a previous show and liking what he had heard, asked if we would like to start playing at The Top of the Kress. Now playing at The Kress every Tuesday night, we are still on the look out for any kind of show where people can enjoy our music.

The next big event for us was, for the second time, coming in second place in the 2010 Yuma Sun Battle of the Bands. Following that was our first competition win at the 4th of July Indian Festival taking first place. Then playing the local Summer Splash at the Colorado River Park in downtown Yuma, which was a lot of fun. Our latest has been coming in second place yet again at the Walk for Life Battle of the Bands. But nothing has been as exciting to us as the 2010 Halloween show at Underground Tattoo.

With many opportunities ahead of us we look forward to playing when and wherever we can. So if you happen to see one of our shows we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. Even feel free to come up and hit the congas or jump on the mic during a jam. We love the crowd reaction and interaction.

Lyrics

Puzzle Words

Written By: Erick Macias

If I was always feeling sober I would never know
My poetic side is blind
Confusing when I write but gee it sounds so nice
Even sweeter when I try to rhyme
Low, i get when I'm in the mood
Come again did I hear that you want to move
Do you want to dance
Do you want to hold hands and watch this world colaps

So let's stop
Give ourselves just one two three seconds

So when it comes from the sky take it easy
Don't worry, its fine because
When I'm coming down from my flight you know I mind
I just want to sit down relax and unwind
And puzzle words
Entertain my mind so I can make it
Sometimes so I can make it
Sometimes with no worries

I ask myself when am I gonna get a little bit older
And when I do might I just get bolder and bolder
And if I don't know my work, musician hittin notes
With a cloud above frome the stale smoke

So let's stop
Give ourselves just one two three seconds

So when it comes from the sky take it easy
Don't worry its fine because
When I'm comming down from my flight you know I mind
I just want to sit down relax and unwind
And puzzlw words
Entertain my mind so I can make it
Sometimes so I can make it
Sometimes with no worries
