About Tesla

Tesla is a hard rock band from Sacramento, California, known for their straight-forward, working-class style.

∙ Originally called City Kidd, they changed their name to Tesla while recording 1986’s Mechanical Resonance, adding references to inventor (and inspiration) Nikola Tesla to song titles and lyrics.
The Great Radio Controversy, their 1989 sophomore album, earned double Platinum-certification and produced their first Gold hit, “Love Song.”
∙ Their live cover of “Signs,” from 1990’s Five Man Acoustical Jam, was a surprise Top 10 Billboard hit from a record released on a whim and recorded during touring downtime.
∙ The band performed a sold-out show at the ARCO Arena in their hometown of Sacramento after a six-year break, and they later released a double album documenting the reunion tour, Replugged Live.
