In the kitchen, a marinade is mixed to spice up, flavor or tenderize food.
On stage, Marinade the band is pretty much the same — it’s a mix of blues, funk, reggae, rock, psychedelic and soul that “marinates your aural palate,” the band says
The five-piece band from Salt Lake City will spice up Grand Junction on Saturday, Feb. 2, with a performance at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.
Doors will open at 8 p.m.
The band features female vocal lead Talia Keys, who also plays drums, guitar and mandolin; James Trevino, bass; Jimmy Rockstar, guitar; Matt Pizza, percussion; and Spencer Kellog, saxophone.
Marinade has performed throughout Utah and Colorado and into Idaho and Arizona.
At marinademusic.com, professional music photographer Lewis Cooper describes Keys as a “reincarnate of Janis Joplin.”
“And the more I think about it,” he added, “the band sounded a lot like a modern version of The Holding Company.”
Tickets to the show are $7.
