About Tripwire

== Desi == Desi has been singing and playing bass and keyboards in original and cover bands in Southern California and the Phoenix valley for over 25 years. He grew up in a musical household starting with piano at a young age. He has also worked in the music industry as an electronics engineer for companies like Music Man, Rickenbacker and his current home for the last two decades or so, Fender. Before becoming an engineer he spent a few years touring the western United States playing keyboards and bass for the popular cover band The Hitmen. He has since played with many Phoenix-based bands including Mistaken Identity, Ice Cream Headache, Shiner, Presence, Hot Ice, Four Turns Left, Buzzkill and The Hype. == Darwin == As our newest member, Darwin is our frontman and lead singer, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have him . . . and when you hear him sing and watch him perform you’ll know why! A native of the Philippines, Darwin has been singing for about 15 years and has lived, traveled and performed in several parts the world, including Thailand, where he met his wife. He moved to the Phoenix area in 2012, where in addition to Tripwire he has also been performing with UltraMagnetic Band. == Karl == Karl started playing drums at the age of 12 and performing professionally at 13 years old. A native of upstate New York, Karl moved to the Phoenix area in 1989. He has been involved in the local scene ever since and has played in both original and cover bands, including Tequila Mockingbird, Ice Cream Headache, Crayon Sky, The Hype, The JJ's Band, Tripwire, Modrockers, Radio 80's, and Radio Logic. == David == A Phoenix valley resident since 1996, David grew up in southern New Hampshire as well as the Boston area. He actually began his musical endeavors as a drummer at age 6 and played/practiced consistently until age 15, when he began playing guitar. Four years later he attended Berklee College of Music; several years after that he recorded a CD with a local original band and played around the Boston area. After having played guitar for over 15 years he took a 13-year hiatus, then picked it back up again in 2008 and since then he has been playing around the Phoenix area with local bands including Buzzkill, Radio 80's, Killswitch, and occasionally The Pete Cummings Band. Keeping you rockin' and dancing to your favorite songs from the 60's - 90's!
