TRICUS got its name from David’s former band Tribal Path (TRI) and George’s former band Dinonicus (CUS) using font of the Raptor Guitars logo. A Trident spear or fork is our emblem in honor of the Navy Seals, the history of Poseidon and, of course, the Arizona State Sun Devils.
We are a hard rock band that writes, composes, and performs our own original music. We have blended the sounds of David Olivarez’ powerful vocals and the guitar playing of George Contreras to the ass-kicking beat of Norman Lund on drums. Newly added Bassist Sean Valverde completes the band.
For booking, call George Contreras at (602) 510-6461, or David Olivarez at (480) 459-1115.

A lover of all things guitar, San Francisco-based Jerry Robison performs metal music for its ability to be brutal yet beautiful, menacing yet meaningful, and melodic yet technical, all without sacrificing the almighty “groove”. With the help of drummer Lassiter and producer Jeff Lusby-Breault, Robison finished work on his first solo recording “Para Bellum” in 2013.
Assisted by Lassiter (Drums).
