San Diego's lethal DJ duo, Shark Attack, took over Club Voyeur this past weekend to celebrate their new CD release, Shooting Judas. Our friends at DiscoverSD.com were there to see what happens when electro-fueled locals invade.
Patrick Heaney and Mike Delgado, aka Shark Attack, grew up side-by-side in Coronado. At the tender age of 5 years-old, Patrick began mastering the drums, violin, cello, harmonium, guitar and bass. Switching swiftly from one instrument to the next, Patrick established his passion for music at an early age, but did not identify his specific calling until years later. Across the block, Mike paid loyalty to the guitar, and eventually switched over to the bass.
Although the duo has been music-based since the beginning, it was always less work, more play. Patrick and Mike balanced a life full of music, experimentation, urban influence, and a seasonal splash of modest mayhem.
Says Mike, "We drank more than anything, we weren't focused on becoming big in the industry; we never had big goals. Looking back, it feels like we must have cheated somehow to be where we are today."
Although Patrick and Mike have strong instrumental backgrounds, their success lies in compiling old songs to create a new, unified sound.
So, what is Shark Attack's X factor?
Says Patrick, "It's the high energy in our interactive performance. We have no rules and no limits--we don't just stand there, we act out and get crazy."
Says Mike, "We're fun, we get nasty. We're really good looking, and we definitely are not fat. It's the most fun you'll ever have."
Shark Attack truly is an unpredictable performance. From swinging on curtains across stage to dragging fans out of the audience and stripping down to bare minimums, Shark Attack always keeps the crowd entertained and security busy.
