Chad Jasmine- Former leader/singer of Los Angeles band National People’s Gang in the 80’s and 90’s. Know for his performance art and gorilla theater productions. The L.A. Times described him as a singer/Song writer with a heightened sense of the bizarre.
Chad launched his solo career in 1992 with his critically acclaimed album titled “Feed” which got heavy rotation on Santa Monica’s legendary public radio station KCRW. This led to Chad being named Host Artist for the Long Beach, Ca. based “When words collide” spoken word/music festival.
Since then Chad has released 13 CD’s on Parlay Records, toured periodically and shared bills with many iconic performers including Jim Carrol, Richie Havens, Laurie Anderson, G Love and Mike Watt. Also some bands he has opened for, or in some cases have opened for him include, Nirvana, Sound Garden, Fire Hose, Flaming Lips and Primus. Chaka Khan once joined Chad on stage and played drums for an hour long set in an impromptu performance at Jacksonville’s once famous Voodoo lounge circa 2003.
Since the birth of his son Carlos in 2011, Chad has laid low publicly, performing less to fully enjoy fatherhood.
In a recent interview Chad said “My kid is 6 now and his favorite band is Led Zeppelin! If that doesn’t get you fired up to start playing again what would? It’s time to show my kid what his dad does!”
