A good alternative might be to stay local and check out "L.A. Accident," one of three bands playing Friday night as part of the city of Temecula's Hot Summer Nights festivities. The other two bands are "Nitro Express" and "The Bash."
Each Friday night from now through Sept. 2 a variety of bands and other family entertainment will fill the streets of the historical district. The entertainment is free.
"L.A. Accident" is not actually named for the city, but for lead singer Luke Andrews. However, an incident on the streets of Los Angeles is linked to the band's name.
In 2006, shortly after arriving in L.A. from Toronto, Andrews was hit by a car while getting off a bus.
Although his injuries were minor, the medical bills were major, he said.
The band's name ---- Luke Andrews Accident, "L.A. Accident" ---- stuck.
Friday's entertainment begins at 6 p.m. at several Old Town locations. Park your car, walk around and enjoy.
By the time the bands play their final sets, Carmaggedon will be well under way, and you'll be far, far away.

"Titles Are Not My Specialty , Sept. 19, 2004"


"Club Rockit in Toronto had some pretty amazing talent grace its stage on September 12th and 18th. If you weren’t at either one of the shows, then too bad for you -- but not to worry, because I’m fairly sure that this is just the beginning for the lot of bands I’m speaking of. They’ll be in-your-face all over television and radio in a few short years (or months?)! ....And Luke Andrews -- thanks for opening the show with an inspiring acoustic set. Let’s see if we can get you into some more shows! "

"LA Accident Returning to Wildomar"

LA Accident returning to Wildomar

Friday, October 24th, 2008.
Issue 43, Volume 8.

The LA Accident will be performing at the Lake House in Canyon Lake tomorrow night. This will be the first time the band will be returning to the area since performing at the city of Wildomar’s inauguration ceremony in July.

The band is led by Luke Andrews, a singer/songwriter born in Canada who relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music.

In LA he met three native Southern Californians, all students at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, and found that the chemistry and personalities of the four of them meshed very well.

As a result of their different musical backgrounds and styles, they created a unique contemporary sound. From that came The LA Accident with Mike Gunn on bass, Garrett Morris on drums and Mike Rizzuto on lead guitar.

Rizzuto and Morris were both raised in Wildomar and are coming home to share their fresh sound with the people of their hometown.

In 2006, shortly after Luke moved to LA from Toronto, he was struck by a car while getting off of a bus. He came away from the accident with nothing but a couple scratches and a huge medical bill. What he realized later, is that he learned so much more.

Luke states, “I named my band The LA Accident (The Luke Andrews Accident), not only because I was alive after facing death, but also because I don't believe in ‘accidents.’ Accidents usually have a negative connotation. I believe that almost everything happens for a reason.”

In 2008, he appeared on MTV's NEXT, where the New York Film Academy shot a music video for his original song, Back in Love, and the release of his first album, Rising, followed. His sophomore album, The Movement, is a socially conscious message of change delivered with a funky mix of reggae, hip-hop and blues. The album is a collaboration with many guests, including soulful back-up singers, Maya and Nandy McClean (have worked with Prince), groovy sax player, Harold Torres, and hard-hitting hip-hop vocalist, Eddie Moreno.

Luke Andrews and The LA Accident have played at many prominent clubs, festivals, and competitions in Southern California, FL, and Canada, including The Roxy, Viper Room, Whisky-A-Go-Go, BB King's (opening for Blessid Union of Souls), Cameron House, Temecula Hot Summer Nights, Florida Music Festival 2005 and the 2010 Emergenza Finals.
