Marinade, a band whose sound offers a "juicy, succulent combination" of "funky blues, rock and reggae," stops at three20south in Breckenridge Saturday on the Colorado leg of its tour. The band is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and refers to its fans and family as "Marianettes." Here's what Talia Keys (lead vocals, drums, guitar and mandolin) had to say on the group, its projects and its ongoing battle with zombies:
A very high-energy show, with long jams, dance frenzies and sing-a-longs. We play mostly original material, but throw in some good covers to keep the crowd familiar. From Bob Marley to War, Etta James to The Dead, Beatles to Bowie - we play a very diverse set of music.
We just released our first full-length CD called "Soak Your Meat In This...", so we have been busy playing in support of that. We also just released our first official music video for our single, "Tie-Die," better known as "the Hippie Killer song." It can be seen on our website, www.marinademusic.com. We also just started filming our next music video as well.
Live music - seeing it, playing it, being it. I love performing and being in the crowd. It's very inspirational to see someone doing what they love to do, and making people groove at the same time.
Let's just say dealing with "zombies." I call those who are intoxicated/inebriated beyond control a "zombie." In our line of work, after shows, zombies can be found everywhere - trying to help carry gear out, trying to help back up the 10-foot trailer whilst standing between van and trailer, all the way to "messing" yourself as you tried to steal a credit card from the bar. All of these things have happened, and [while] it may not be very funny when it happens, we certainly get lots of laughs about it later.
We had an amazing time playing here this summer; it was by far our best show on tour. I cannot wait to come back and play again. So come out early and stay out late. Don't forget we have a new album and T-shirts too. Please come and say hello. If you mention this article we will sell our CD to you for half off - only $5. Saturday's show starts at 9:30 p.m. and the cover is $5. Info: www.three20south.com.
