In the fall of 2009, a group of friends from Donna, Texas dreamt of making music for a living. Not long after, the dream became reality and The Sight of Impact was born.
“We all grew up together, a good mixture of people with good ideas of making music,” John Angulo, rhythm guitarist, said. “We all have our musical differences within ourselves, but that is what makes The Sight of Impact’s music. ”
The Sight of Impact was one of the bands featured during the “Rock It On Campus” event last week on University Blvd.
The Sight of Impact, which consists of Moises Lopez (singer/guitarist), Aaron Cruz (bass) Jessie Mendoza, Angulo (rhythm guitarist), Issac Zamora (guitarist) and Marco Lugo (key boards) are currently ranked number 13 on Reverb Nation charts for alternative bands in the Donna area.
The band took two years to make their first debut
in the music scene to focus on making their music and perfecting it before making their first appearance to the public.
“We are not conventional, we don’t follow stereotypical band,” Angulo said. “We move around together, we work together to make the music flow.”
The band, having had no prior connection with the music scene, got their first chance performing at a friend’s birthday bash.
“It was a leap of faith. We didn’t have high expectations, it being our first show, and we just let the music speak for itself,” Cruz said. “People seemed really pleased. Soon after another show came along.”
The Sight of Impact, all the musicians contributing their own original music of alternative rock, live life respecting other bands that are trying to make it big in the musical world as well.
“We make it a point to be respectful to others bands living on the same dreams and goals we strive for,” Angulo said. “ It takes guts to get on stage, and we take constructive criticism with being respectful as our prime goal.”
The band has begun recording their first extended play which will be released fall of 2012.
“We love having the opportunity to come together and play our music,” Angulo said. “We don’t know what will happen in the future, but we hope we’re still playing together, our music being the reason to wake up in the morning.”
Currently, The Sight of Impact has three singles on Reverb Nation; “Pathways and Endings,” “Lifeless” and “Dreamcatcher.”
