Ten Years after the band Oingo Boingo’s Farewell Show (Halloween 1995). Johnny Vatos, the drummer for Oingo Boingo decided to do a show for the true loyal Oingo Boingo fans. He came up with the “Johnny Vatos Tribute to Halloween.” He got other fellow band members [John Avila (bass), Steve Bartek (lead guitar), Sam “Sluggo” Phipps (sax) Doug Legacy (Keyboards)] from Oingo Boingo to participate in a show dedicated to the fans. This show occurred October 29th, 2005. With other fellow musicians, they tore the stage a new one for a SOLD OUT CONCERT at the Grove in Anaheim,CA . Food for Feet also got back together and played for the concert. As well as the encore with the song “Dead Man’s Party” with the crowd Going Crazy and Wanting More! It was truly a concert for the ages. And thus I bid adieu until further notice and see you in October 2009!

No, this is not a reunion. Danny does not believe in reunions and is lobbing in congress to ban all rock reunions.
