Look Out! GJ Rockestra

Grand Junction Rockestra’s vocalists coordinate their outfits before each show, with variations on the palette of the red-and-black Rockestra “throw the horns” logo. We asked what they were wearing at this Oct. 19 concert that made them feel like a rock star.



Scene: Grand Junction Rockestra’s “The British are Coming” concert, a salute to British rock, had a packed house at Robinson Theatre at Colorado Mesa University on Oct. 19.

Style: Rockestra’s vocalists coordinate their outfits before each show, with variations on the palette of the red-and-black Rockestra “throw the horns” logo. Rock ‘n’ roll is all about swagger, so we asked the vocalists, left to right, what they were wearing that made them feel like a rock star.

Fashion sense: Jeena’s black knee-high boots elevated her to rock star mode. She bought them at the now-closed Miss Marie shoe store on Main Street. They have criss-crossed, studded straps and a 4-inch stacked heel. Even the brand was rockin’: Carlos Santana.

Bryce’s outfit — shiny square-toed loafers, black button-down shirt and red tie — was courtesy of his biggest fan. “It was basically a gift from my mom,” he said. She took him shopping the day of the show. “The loose tie is what makes it cool.”

Rich likes a classic look when he’s performing classic rock: black boots, Lucky jeans (score from Sam’s Club) and black Rockestra T-shirt. Wearing the T-shirt, which also is worn by the rock band and orchestra, is a show of solidarity, he said.

Toni said it’s all about the shoes. Her black, sequined 4-plus-inch heels are her go-to for “probably 75 percent of the shows.” When they didn’t fit her roommate, Toni inherited them. “They just make me feel like a rock star, like I’m walking on air.”

Josh got his embroidered, Western-style black shirt and jeans from Runway. “It just looked cool,” he said. He went shopping a few weeks before the show for something in which he felt confident.

Katie said makeup is her “sexy mask.” To transform to rock star, she wore fake eyelashes with rhinestones, a coppery-red lip and glitter. Lots of glitter. “I’m in charge of glitter” for all the singers, she said. “I have a new can every show.”
