      TESLA is a multi-platinum-selling rock band from Northern California known for their melodic songs and down to earth appeal. Thanks to their die-hard, loyal fan base and their younger generation offspring, TESLA continues to tour to sold-out crowds around the world. Their 2009 FOREVER MORE tour in support of the new album of the same name, gives their audience a 25-year musical journey that keeps the loyal fans coming back and has newcomers realizing, “WOW, I didn’t know they did that song!” TESLA’s new album, Forever More contains the first single “I Wanna Live,” along with “Breakin’ Free” and the self-titled track that opens the show nightly.

      After playing several showcases in Los Angeles, TESLA quickly scored a deal with Geffen and released their debut album, Mechanical Resonance, in 1986; it produced the hard rock hits and crowd favorite, "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Little Suzi." Mechanical Resonance reached the Top 40 on the album charts, and eventually went platinum. It was the follow-up, 1989's, The Great Radio Controversy which truly broke the band. The first single, "Heaven's Trail (No Way Out)," was a hit with hard rock audiences, setting the stage for the second single, a comforting ballad called "Love Song" which substituted a dash of hippie utopianism for the usual power ballad histrionics.

      TESLA’s line-up consists of four of its original members: vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarist Frank Hannon, bassist Brian Wheat, and drummer Troy Luccketta and new guitarist Dave Rude who has brought a new energy and creativity to the band. The band was formed in Sacramento, CA, in 1985, out of an earlier, locally popular group called City Kidd, which dated back to 1982. The band wrote original music and knew their name didn’t fit the sound. At management's suggestion, the band named itself after the eccentric inventor Nikola TESLA, who pioneered the radio but was given only belated credit for doing so.
      TESLA is more creative now than ever, simultaneously creating and producing their own videos and albums.
