California, United States

The Last Dance are a modern alternative rock group from California. The music is a hard hitting blend of basic guitar, bass and drums rock ‘n’ roll with 80’s style , , , and .

Guitarist Rick Joyce, vocalist Jeff Diehm, and bassist Peter J. Gorritz rely on many years of working together in the stage and studio combined with a wealth of varied musical styles and influences between them to forge a sound that is solid and consistent yet flexible enough to constantly evolve.

Years of friendship and shared triumphs and tragedies have also helped the 3 principle members keep the band going strong in situations where many would have given up. The rigors and hazards of life on the road, the constant challenge of being an independent rock band in a world of Major Label competition, Pop Divas and American Idol; even the tragic death of longtime drummer Ivan Dominguez have not been able to slow the bands momentum and desire to succeed.

The Last Dance have released 6 full length albums, along with several E.P.s and Limited Edition releases. They have also been featured performers on innumerable compilations released worldwide, including international magazines and Hot Topic exclusives. They have performed exhilarating live shows on stages of all sizes in clubs, halls, and indoor and outdoor festivals throughout North and Latin America and Europe and are expected to be hitting Asia and Australia in the near future.

    Also, I urge you to try and source a copy of Perfect, it's a pretty good album that doesn't have as many plays, I can only assume due to how difficult it is to find.

    Comparing The Crüxshadows older works with The Last Dance is a bit naïve (in a band A is better than band B point of view), but The Crüxshadows later albums (basically Mystery of the Whisper onwards) is a no-go comparison wise. They evolved and changed their style, The Last Dance only evolved. I prefer the Crüxshadows in general because I prefer their style, not because they are 'better', but because they appeal to me more. Their latest album and singles have been a bit less enjoyable in my opinion, but The Crüxshadows will always be number one for me :)
