"Vans Warped Tour 2007"

Opening things up for the Warped on the Ernie Ball Stage was a local Miami band, Spinlight City. Rayko's angelic vocals, Tony's catchy guitar melodies, and Joey's incredible drumming were extremely impressive. They even performed one of my favorite songs, "Role of Poison Ivy" from their self-titled EP, which had everyone clapping and chanting for more. - OUTLOUD Magazine

"We are Spinlight City" are the final words you hear at the end of their show, leaving a lasting impression on their audience. Resting under the sunny skies of Miami, Florida, the alternative rock quintet is made up of Rayko Batista (vocals), Rey Garcia (guitar/vocals), David Martinez (bass) and Joey Z. (drums/vocals). Their catchy lyrics and incredibly driving rhythms radiate what this band is all about: great music.

In just three years the band has solidified a brotherhood to which the members have contributed parts of their own personality. Having acquired pieces of each other, they formed a single unit comprised of friendly, charismatic and amazing human beings. Rayko is the most animated band member who can usually be found making new friends outside of your local venue, singing, and dancing. Rey is the quiet band member; he has a lot to say but his reserved attitude is what draws you to him the most. Joey is the most easygoing band member. His laid-back attitude makes it easy for fans to approach and really get to know and feel comfortable around the band. David is the youngest in the group. But don't let his age fool you, he will debate anything with you. From the evolutionary chain to metaphysics.

These boys have done some pretty great things in a small amount of time. Perfoming at The Vans Warped Tour in '07, Performing at the Florida Music Festival in '08, and being selected to perform at the 2009 Grammy Showcase to just name a few.

In October of 2008, Spinlight City teamed up with powerhouse producer James Paul Wisner (Paramore, The Academy is, Dashboard Confessional) and in their combined efforts conjured up the band's brand new EP: "Agree to Disagree". An infectiously catchy blend of Rock n Roll and Pop music that just leaves you asking "Where can I get more!?"

Rayko, Rey, Joey and David's years of practice and dedication is the driving force that has gotten them this far and will keep pushing them to go all the way. Their live performance is something you absolutely need to catch. The way they just keep you at the edge of your seat and wanting more. What was once meant to be a jam band in someone's garage has flourished into something more meaningful, more alive. It has transformed into the sensation we feel today, known as Spinlight City.
