Shiner Park is hosting a live music event made up entirely of student performers on February 2, 7 p.m to 10 p.m.
Live from the Underground will feature five bands, all native to Bryan-College Station, including Bad Hombre, JC Juice, HYAH!, YeeHa and My Chemical Bromance. JC Faa from JC Juice told us about the purpose of the event.
“Live From the Underground has a twofold objective. One is to provide students with a unique weekend outing opportunity, and two is to provide talented student musicians the opportunity to express themselves on a broader, more popular platform,” JC Faa said.
JC Juice is a solo artist with a unique hip-hop sound created by combining moving, intricate lyrics with jazzy beats. A recent collaboration entitled “Alive” brought JC Juice and another featured band, HYAH!, together. HYAH! is a well-known punk-funk band in BCS. The unique instrumentals in this band seem to flow seamlessly in a way crowds thoroughly enjoy. You can expect to see collaboration between these two artists on stage at the event. You won’t want to miss the combination of unique instrumentals from HYAH! with groovy beats and strong lyrics of JC Juice.
YeeHa! is known for their exciting stage presence. This psychedelic inspired rock band has a unique, funky sound that sets them apart from other rock artists. David Alvarez, Poncho Galvan and Matthew Credit just got back from a “Swamp Tour” that took them through Texas and Louisiana.
Live from the Underground will be the first time anyone will witness Bad Hombre together as a band. College Station’s newest punk rock group will be treating you to covers of punk rock tracks we all know and love.
“We have a pretty diverse group of performers, ranging from pop-punk to rap and R&B,” one member, William Roberts, said. “I personally am super excited to perform live as Bad Hombre for the first time. Our band members have performed together many times but this is a new project for us.”
Roberts is joined by Presley Good, Matthew Lucas and Ravi Narula to complete this group of talented, active and passionate artists.
Another cover band, My Chemical Bromance, composed of members of Texas A&M’s Ol’ Army men’s organization, will be fulfilling your throwback needs with covers from King’s of Leon, Jimmy Eat World, the Killers and more.
This truly unique live music event is unlike anything we’ve seen in the BCS area. According to David Alvarez of HYAH! and YeaHa!, the show is the product of the BCS music scene’s collaboration.
“The show is showcasing projects that resulted from a musical collective we started. HYAH!, YeeHa! and Bad Hombre all share one or two members,” Alvarez said.
Shiner Park will open its doors at 7 p.m. Admission is free for those over the age of 21, and those under the age of 21 will be required to pay the regular cover.
