~~~~~ One bright summer Nevada morning back in 2006, Atalay was wandering the desert in a drunken daze, guitar slung over his back, when he ran into Jesse. Jesse, also quite confused from all the heat, carried a drum, and the two just knew there was nothing else they could do to survive the morning sun but kick out a sweet jam. It was at the Burning Man Festival, and grand cosmic mysteries were apt to reveal themselves. After stumbling out of the desert a week later, all high, dusty, and sunburnt, they both realized a shared passion for weaving intricate musical tales of ecstasies and oblivion, all among the most curious of settings: cliff sides, mountain tops, on the shores of glacial rivers, and busy metropolitan streets from BC to California to Montreal, and back. More than a year later, and after many an adventure, they decided to form a band. Other traveling troubadours eventually threw in their lot: Elise tramped around Europe playing fiddle with Irish drinking bands; and they ran into Dan at their first gig on New Year's eve at a house party in the wild rainforests north of Vancouver; and Rachel, well, she's Jesse's timelessly talented little sister - who knows where she came from (another planet perhaps?). Together these modern gypsies gather together in rainy Vancouver to form La La Boom Boom in its present incarnation, exploding with rollicking and transcendant rock'n roll reminiscent of driving all night through the sunrise to reach a lover in some far off destination. ~~~~~
