The Last Dance was originally formed in 1990 in the Southern California city of Fountain Valley by schoolmates Rick Joyce (Guitar) and Jeff
Diehm (Vocals). Soon after they were joined by Ian Haas (Drums) & Tony Tullai (Bass).
Inspired by UK post-punk bands of the 80’s like Southern Death Cult, The Mission & U2, as well as their SoCal peers like London After Midnight
& Christian Death, they set out to create their own brand of dark & passionate rock music, one that paid tribute to their inspirations yet called
upon other varied influences as well as their own personal musical & spiritual inclinations to give them their own unique & personal voice.
