COUNTY, Calif. – Race fans attending the highly competitive

The Tender Box band members
– Joey Medina (vocals, guitar), Raul Martinez (guitar), Steve
Mungarro (bass, vocals) and Chuck Gil (drums) are four childhood
friends that formed the band growing up in the predominant Mexican

Originally inspired by
the post punk and synthpop groups of the 1980s, The Tender Box have
expanded on their sound blending alternative rock, Latin grooves
and electro dance beats as revealed in their debut album The Score.
