Live Again, Joint Chiefs To Take Stage At State The­atre

Riverbank News - - 209 LIVING -

For over six years Live Again has been bring­ing their love of mu­sic to fans and au­di­ences all around Cal­i­for­nia. From their ar­ray of cov­ers to their own orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions, the band is al­ways striv­ing for the ab­so­lute best. Win­ners of mul­ti­ple bat­tles of the bands, Live Again has also been fea­tured on ra­dio sta­tions such as KSCO, KZSC and KPIG. One of their big­gest achieve­ments was on Aug. 29, 2015 when they took away the Best Band award for their orig­i­nal song “Ev­ery Other Time” at Val­ley’s Got Tal­ent at The Gallo Cen­ter for The Arts.

The Joint Chiefs will also be part of the evening of en­ter­tain­ment and are one of the most ver­sa­tile and ex­cit­ing bands cur­rently per­form­ing on the North­ern Cal­i­for­nia mu­sic scene.

Tak­ing the stage at the State The­atre in Modesto on Satur­day, Aug. 25, the Live Again per­for­mance is sched­uled to fea­ture Alex Lucero (vo­cals, gui­tar), Ryan Price (bass, vo­cals), Kenny Kish­lansky (sax­o­phone), Tom Bar­tolero (per­cus­sion), Mick Adams (lead gui­tar, vo­cals) and Jake McCuen (drums).

Heav­ily in­flu­enced by R&B and Soul of the 1960s and ‘70s, lead singer/front man Lucero show­cases his tim­ber and rasp as well as high falsetto in his live and stu­dio per­for­mances. Price’s bass play­ing is un­mis­tak­able as part of the Live Again sound and is a cru­cial el­e­ment to ev­ery­thing the band plays.

Since their in­cep­tion in 1990, The Joint Chiefs have built a loyal fol­low­ing based on their live per­for­mances as well as their wide range styles and in­flu­ences. Their sound fuses el­e­ments of Funk, Acid Jazz and Clas­sic R&B with their own sig­na­ture groove. The re­sult is a dance party of in­fec­tious grooves. Since mem­bers of the band were raised on ‘70s Funk, the band is able to cap­ture the real nat­u­ral funk feel. They will be fea­tur­ing Don Caruth (vo­cals, lead gui­tar), Daniel Lewis (bass), Bryant Mills (drums) and Bill Biala (sax­o­phone).

Tick­ets for the show are $27 in ad­vance and $30 day of; doors open at 7 p.m. with the show at 8 p.m.

The State The­atre is at 1307 J St., Modesto.

Alex Lucero and Live Again take cen­ter stage at The State The­atre in Modesto for a con­cert on Satur­day, Aug. 25. The evening will also fea­ture a per­for­mance by The Joint Chiefs.
