"Alan’s Wrench—one of Southern California and Nevada’s most heralded and sought after independent rock bands...."

LAS VEGAS AND SOUTHERN CAL, 2014 - Alan’s Wrench—one of Southern California and Nevada’s most heralded and sought after independent rock bands…is making a longawaited return. Music Connection magazine hailed them as Modern rock that is radio ready. Alans Wrench was formed in 1997 by front man and vocalist Dave Simoncic, winner of Rockstar Las Vegas 2005, and has continuously brought new insights into modern rock-n-roll. Rocks got a million faces, you just gotta find which one youre gonna wear, Dave said in an interview with the Journal Star. The bands sophomore CD release in late 2002, Room With A View created a loyal fan base across the globe. The bands music is based not so much as where music is today, but where its going to be tomorrow. Being a rock band from a predominantly punk area like Orange County, they excelled in creating excitement everywhere they went. Their fame spread from Las Vegas and Orange County, to cities in Northern California such as Sacramento and Chico, to cities all across Europe and Japan. With their third CD release Walk Away, Alans Wrench was ready to take their music to the next level- Showcasing and securing opening slots at prestigious stages such as The House of Blues (Hollywood and Anaheim), The Galaxy Theatre and The Coach House (Orange County) and The Roxy Theatre (Hollywood), Voodoo Lounge (Riverside) and in 2004 landed a monthly gig at BB Kings at Universal City Walk. It was a band proving to promoters and club owners “Alans Wrench is the next big thing”, nabbing opening positions with such bands as Gary Hoey Living Colour, The Tubes, Brother, Great White, Sponge, and Thin Lizzy.Vocalist Dave Simoncic, in October 2005, was named Rockstar Las Vegas as presented by KLAS-TV Channel 8 and 92.3 KOMP Radio respectively. Although Alan’s Wrench lasted over a decade…a show in May 2008 proved to be the last of the once highly touted band. Although there was no one reason why the band was no more….each member has gone their separate ways. Once built as afamily of musicians sharing their collective thoughts, now has split to follow their own paths. You can still find them on the beaches of Southern California and on the high limit tables in Las Vegas, Nevada.
