Illuminate Live in association with SF RPD presents Wreckless Strangers @ Golden Gate Bandshell
October 27 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Hailing from the Bay Area, Wreckless Strangers is a tight-knit collective of six talented musicians whose journey began in 2016 as an informal jam session. Fast forward seven years, and the band has released three original albums and performed countless captivating shows. Wreckless Strangers masterfully blend blues, R&B, Americana, and good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll to craft a distinctive sound that strikes a perfect balance between unique, familiar, and just plain fun. The band features Amber Morris (Premier Bay Area vocalist and voice coach – members of Journey, Eric Martin Band) on vocals; David Noble (Poor Man’s Whiskey, Pardon The Interruption) on lead guitar, vocals; Joshua Zucker (The Jones Gang, Rowan Brothers) on bass; Austin de Lone (Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, The Fabulous Thunderbirds) on keys, vocals; Mick Hellman (The Go To Hell Man Band) on drums, vocals; and Rob Anderson (repeat world champion cyclist) on guitar.
Wreckless Strangers’ new EP Orange Sky Dream is out now and features soulful ballads, barn-burning blues, and downright dirty rock’ n’ roll that characterize the live set while delving into new emotional and stylistic terrain. The album derives its name from a powerful and timely source of inspiration – the pressing environmental crises gripping the planet, particularly in the band’s home state of California, where orange skies blanketed San Francisco in 2020 due to wildfires. Beyond environmental advocacy, Orange Sky Dream explores diverse themes, from female empowerment to fostering empathy in a world that often seems divided. These messages are skillfully woven into a musical tapestry of rockin’ guitar solos and captivating beats.
