The hard rocking group Cheva has been around since 1993. The band formed in Mission Viejo, CA, on home ground. Members stack up as frontman and vocalist Santos Camacho, drummer and percussionist Andrew Bogart, and three wild guitarists; Hector Gonzalez, John Lunden, and Dylan Caldwell. Cheva's music is definitely not for those faint of heart. Each song the band plays rocks a little bolder than the one before. Many of the tunes are something akin to numbers by Korn, Incubus, or Kid Rock. After performing around the local California club circuit long enough to have gained a decent sized fan following, the guys recorded a few songs and put together a five-track offering. The self-titled debut showcases songs like "Harmless," "Blank," and "What's Fair." In 1999, Cheva completed a sophomore EP titled Misunderstood. It was released under the Wabrock Records label and carries metallic tracks such as "Dying Posse," "Done Wrong," "Get Up," "Juice," and "Brown World." Over its long career, Cheva has had reviews in Highwire Daze Magazine, Sounds Magazine, and even e-zines like Smother. The band has also opened for many big-name rock acts, including Incubus, Dial 7, Six Feet Under, Snot, and Spineshank. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
