Networking Fuels Vallejo Music Scene as Ajar Collaborates with Mother Muerte

Published January 17, 2024

In the dynamic music scene of Vallejo, connections are key, especially for those making their mark one performance at a time. For Robert Vienneau, a seasoned punk rock musician leading the band Ajar, these connections have been instrumental throughout his career.

Vienneau, wielding his guitar and taking up the mic, has played a significant role in shaping the local music landscape. His band is known for its original tunes and the occasional cover, a distinct approach in an area where cover bands are more prevalent. Their dedication to presenting original music requires an extra effort to engage the audience, and they relish the challenge.

The upcoming show at Townhouse Cocktail Lounge on January 21st will see Ajar sharing the stage with Mother Muerte, an intriguing two-piece act that blends mystical psychedelic rock with the culturally rich imagery of Dia de los Muertos. The collaboration promises to be an electrifying experience for fans of both bands, each with their own unique following.

Beyond genre boundaries, Ajar's willingness to experiment and interact with the audience has marked a recent turning point in their performances. Vienneau recalls a show where they ditched their lyric stands, a change that brought newfound energy and connection with the crowd.

Amidst a year of transformation, Ajar sees the fruits of their labor with a growing buzz and increased attendance at their shows. Their recently released self-titled album on Spotify is fueling anticipation for what's to come.

Vallejo's music scene continues to thrive on the principles of community and collaboration, with artists like Ajar and Mother Muerte leading the way. As they prepare to bring their distinctive styles together, both the bands and their fans are in for an unforgettable night of live music.
