"Los Ocupados started in chaos. The year was 2020 and the beginnings of the band represent the times. Tumultuous, persistent, and full of uncertainty. As they gelled, they found an amazing, intense ska-punk sound reminiscent of bands like Link 80, GOGO13, and The Interrupters. Over time, they became a ska band that brought the energy and positivity all over Western Washington. Mixing alternative, punk, and ska, Los Ocupados is your new favorite bilingual band. They'll get you up and out of your seat, dancing and skanking, thinking and ruminating."
We are a acoustic high energy party folk punk band. We turn every set into a party!!!! Let's dance, sing, and have a good time!!!
Jonathan Mahler -also known as Trusty Sea Creatures- was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He was always curious about music, and musical instruments. Pretending to play guitar as a young child, and wanting to take part in family gatherings that were always filled with music. At age 14, he picked up an old guitar that had been stashed away in a closet, and decided to learn how to play. He, and his older brother, taught themselves -and each other- how to play guitar. Eventually Jonathan began to learn other instruments. Bass, piano, and drums to name a few. At age 16, Jonathan began writing music. Along with their uncle, the brothers formed the band First Quarter Moon. Living distance between everyone eventually lead to the project falling dormant. A solo musician, with a desire to record was born from those early years of playing music. Creating soundscapes, and playing any instruments he could get his hands on. After a few years, Jonathan found an old recording device, and began learning how to record on his own. Starting out with a primitive 8 track portable studio. He began self releasing music as quickly as he could, but found the limits of the recording device to be very constricting. After a few years-and with the help of his wife- he was able to get a modern home studio started. There, he began breathing new life into the old recordings he had made in the old studio. And with them, new songs began to emerge. In 2021, Some of those old songs, and a handful of new songs, became his first official release: "Running Through The Trees." He continues to live in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, and son.
