Living Colour- "Vivid" 25th Anniversary Tour
During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable; the opposite of the late '60s/early '70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York's Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the '80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.). Starting with Vivid and continuing on future albums, the band showed that rock could still convey a message. 2013 Marks the 25th anniversary of Vivid, Living Colour's debut record, which will also see them embark on a 25th anniversary tour.
AJ says!!! Rock band that blends the difficult with the obscure....... the sexy with the hard core, the metal with the soul and a whole lot of balls. If you want to listen to the same ol shit or "stepped on a pop top blew out my flip flop" this is not the band for you...... No fancy lights, no trickery, don't need to get drunk to enjoy this band.... we can sing and play your asses off! If you want a show? if you want to get your ass rocked? I give you Lugosi!
ANTHONY JAMES "AJ" FRATTO: Vocals
"The Beast From The East" is the live wire that spearheads Lugosi. The infectious compatibility between my bandmates and myself are apparent through our motivational music. I feed off their onslaught and proceed to embrace anything that crosses my path. Emotionally driven, AJ's heart and soul set the standard as a conscientious showman. I live for the crowd; we together are active participants in this beautiful assembly of sound. I consider our band to be "the peoples champ". After all, the people are what it's all about. I'm so proud they allow us to be a representative of their culture and spirit. We will NOT let them down.
CHRIS 'Oz' OSBOURNE: guitar
Chris Osbourne is the blazing guitarist of Lugosi. Nicknamed Oz, he is a man of many hats, playing just about any lick on his beloved instrument. Heavily influenced by the likes of Randy Rhodes and Edward Van Halen, Oz's ability to play is flawless. His 'can do' attitude makes him a comfortable band mate and a crowd favorite. Oz brings a flood of power and color to the already high octane level present in the band. His ability to enhance the bands groove and play outside the box is infectious.
CHRIS 'Weave' WEAVER: bass guitar
A guitar riff master turned bassist, Weave's earth rattling chops are reminiscent of an old school, Godzilla horror movie introduction. Coming from a thrash and doom influence, Weave rocks a steady pocket and just knocks out tasteful low end grooves throughout Lugosi's material. Chris Weaver brings the thunder to a melodically-aggressive line-up and his impact on the unit is without a doubt unmistakable. Weave knew he wanted to play music the moment he heard Metallica's 'Master of Puppets'.
MICHAEL LUKERS: battery
Drums really came alive for Michael when he saw Eric Carr in 1984 on the Animalize Tour. I was hooked on KISS and Eric's playing (RIP). Through his influences, Michael grasped the ability to push the music while also letting it "breathe". I'd like to think my band has something different to offer, musically and emotionally. Lugosi has live shows with alot of energy, along with songs you won't be able to get out of your head after you hear us play them. I like being in the studio, but love performing live music with these guys. My kits, through the years, have definitely been designed for a visual effect, because when I'm able to stare out at all of those people during a show, it makes me feel alive with appreciation. If Lugosi can get the crowd singing and into the groove of a song on top of being visually entertaining, then we've done our best! Always strive...
