Tesla (The Band)

Posted August 13, 2011

Successful rock band whose name was inspired by the inventor Nikola Tesla. Their webiste (see The Band > History) states the following: “The band formed in 1984 in Sacramento as City Kidd, and was renamed Tesla during the recording of their first album, 1986′s Mechanical Resonance, on the advice of their manager…The band derived their name, certain album and song titles, and some song content from events relating to inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla.” (We’d love to have them perform, one day, in front of the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.)
