The Negotiators go way back. The Los Angeles based band, composed of brothers Oliver Korzen (12, vocals and guitar), Elliott Korzen (11, drums) and best friend Colin Love (12, vocals and bass), formed in 2010. The trio, who met in Kindergarten and still attend the same school, cut their teeth playing their first public gig at the infamous Whiskey-A-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip. 

Since then, they’ve stayed busy sweeping up accolades at Battle of the Bands competitions, booking private events, boutique launches, weddings and charity functions throughout the state. A close knit crew both on and off the stage, this year marks their fifth year as a group. The boys, avid fans of rock n’ roll, cite a range of artists from The Red Hot Chili Peppers to Led Zeppelin as among their chief influences. Their set list consists of mostly original songs, co-written together in the hallowed tradition of an authentic Cali garage band.
