Bomba De Luz only just put out their debut record "What A Heavy Weight," but the high-school band are already darlings in the local music community. With a CD release show that featured too many opening acts to count such as Brian Laidlaw, Twinkie Jiggles Broken Orchestra, Ill Chemistry and Guante, the young group is quickly finding their sound and finessing their craft.
