Miami based Radio Boxer is a band that believes in giving their fans an experience to remember. This is an objective that the band follows in everything they do from promotions to specific concert themes. This past August they held a CD release party for their full-length album, Radio Drama, at the Annex in Hialeah. The party was staged to be a circus side show, and each band member represented a different strange character. Radio Boxer created a buzz for the party by releasing various eerie commercials featuring their different characters on the web. The “circus” included fortunetellers, fire-eaters, artists displaying their work, and listening stations playing the music of local bands.
Radio Boxer has developed a strong following by combining their powerful sound with their clever marketing tools. Their album Radio Drama is a form of Alternative Latin Rock that meanders between crunchy guitars and gentle gypsy undertones. The vocals are always sexy, sometimes belting out in anger other times softly seducing the listener.
November promises to be a busy month for Radio Boxer, starting on the 6th, when they will be sharing the stage with friends, Huma, at Cinema Paradiso after FLIFF's films at 11:30pm. Next is a mini tour west, stopping at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, Nevada and wrapping up in Los Angeles. When the band returns home they will be performing a “rock soap opera” on the radio show, Sound Theory. The show airs live December 11 2009, from 7-9pm and is hosted by Carlos Garcia on WDNA 88.9 FM.
