Fast-rising Santa Clarita-based rock band Renfue will headline a special showcase concert at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex tonight starting at 6 p.m.

Renfue will share the stage with Vans Warped Tour veterans Nural and The Material along with four other Santa Clarita Valley-based youth bands.

Fronted by powerful singer Yvonne Marder, Renfue formed in 2006 and exploded onto the SCV music scene a year later, catching the eyes and ears of Higher Level Productions as well as clothing companies, music producers and record labels. Higher Level's Bret Lieberman manages the group under the aegis of Good Karma Music.

Renfue also features Vincent Bledsoe (guitar), Sean Alch (bass), Rob Jones (guitar), Sean's twin brother Shane (keyboards) and Ryan Weitz (drums).

The band has played events such as the 2008 Summer Meltdown festival in Santa Clarita (headlined by Trapt and Stephen Perkins), as well as Hollywood venues including The Knitting Factory and The Viper Room.

Tonight, with record label reps, music producers and a large contingent of Renfue fans and SCV music scene supporters expected to attend, Renfue will showcase songs from their eponymous debut EP, produced and mixed by Chris Collier at Command Studios in Santa Clarita and masterd by Robert Hadley at The Mastering Lab in Hollywood.

Among them will be the single "What You Wanted"; the Travis L. Cook-directed video is already on YouTube and other video sites.

Renfue has also entered the video in The-Signal.com's "SCV Rock Star" contest, which is in the voting phase now through midnight Sunday, Sept. 7.

In addition to voting for the band in the contest, fans are encouraged to request "What You Wanted" on KROQ-FM/Los Angeles' "Locals Only" show.

"Some very big music industry leaders who could help us get to the next level will be at this show," said Sean Alch. "It's the biggest break we've had so far, and we want to take advantage of it. It's important to us not only so we can go out and tour, but also so we can help put Santa Clarita's music scene on the map. We want everyone in the industry to know there is lots of musical talent here.

"So we'd like to see every music fan in Santa Clarita at the show to support not only us, but also every band playing that night," Alch said.

Tickets are $10 at the door, or $8 with a flyer downloaded from www.higherlevelshows.com. The Sports Complex is located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway in Canyon Country.
