Alex Lucero and Live Again ($5 COVER)

Soul and Funk

We will be charging a $5 cover.

Alex Lucero might have grown up in “The Cowboy Capitol of The World”, but don’t let that fool you. Despite being brought up in a very “country” esque environment in small town Oakdale, Ca, Alex actually grew up listening almost exclusively to the soulful music of the 60’s & 70’s. Artists such as, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Van Morrison and Stevie Wonder have played a huge part of his musical influences and overall feel. Alex Lucero & The Live Again Band have received incredible response across Northern California being played regularly on multiple radio stations and on permanent rotation on the well known KPIG 107 “oink” 5. With the steamrolling effect of success in late 2019 and 2020 (pre-pandemic), Alex and Band plan to continue their touring across California promoting their brand new album entitled “Opportunity”.
