Not only did they say the band was awesome, but they thought the guys in the band couldn’t be nicer. At 10klf, you were unlikely to find any of the guys from Kinetix without someone from Roster McCabe along with them. When rhythm guitarist/synth player Drew Preiner informed me they would be coming to Chicago the following weekend, I couldn’t wait to check them out.

 

The Store was packed with excited fans, eager for Roster McCabe’s brand of funky reggae dance rock. From note one, the entire crowd was dancing along, as Roster McCabe moved seamlessly through genres. In one song, the band can go from reggae to funk to face melting prog rock all while layering four part harmonies on top of it . No matter the style, their dedicated fans ate it up and requested song after song. “Spark a Light” and “Star Gazer” were crowd pleasers.

 

The band was clearly enjoying the packed house. Lead singer Alex Steele traded banter with the crowd, and Preiner explained that if they picked up their live disc, you could hear his sister telling people to cheer. When the set was beginning to wind down and people were still requesting specific songs, Preiner told the crowd they were going to play something else, and if it didn’t rock, they’d fulfil the request. With that, the band broke into 2Pac’s  “California Love” which segued into Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and back into “California Love.” Mixed in were verses rapped by Steele and Preiner as well as a couple jaw dropping guitar solos from lead guitarist Mike Daum. Nobody had any complaints.
