Today's featured artist takes us to the other side of the world, Westland, MI, U.S to be exact, it is where lifelong friends Ray Lawson and Pat Kelly joined by Darrin Lawson and Dennis Pepperack joined together in the Mid-80s and became "The Incurables"
Pat takes the lead guitar and vocals, Ray is the bass guitar and vocals, Darrin is the Drummer and vocals and Dennis takes the guitar and vocals. With the years of experience behind them and a friendship forged in rock and music they are a "band of brothers" in every sense, rocking out as the original members of a band decades after forming.
"The Incurables" take their inspiration from growing up on "bad A.M Radio" and listening to the "60's British Invasion", the psychedelic scene and the seventies and eighties sound coming from New Yorks "CBGB"
The Incurables have an active presence on the stage scene still, which if you check out their youtube channel, you can see they are a band who know how to entertain by having a good time and sharing a love of great music!
The band has recently released their fourth studio produced album "I don't feel so well", the album was produced by The Incurables & Tony Hamera at the award winning Tempermill Studio in Ferndale Michigan.
The track “Detroit Steel” (from the "I don't feel so well album) was chosen as one of the top winning rock anthem songs by the Detroit’s Motor City Muscle Music Festival, a video is also available for viewing on the bands YouTube channel. The Incurables are also working on a new video for their psycho rocker “Eloise” which was influenced by the time the band spent in the now defuncted Eloise psychiatric hospital.
This 2019, the band is working on a project in which they release a series of their favourite covers each month leading into a busy summer period. In January "The Incurables" released "(I'm not your) Steppin Stone" and last Friday they released their latest cover "Wonderful tonight"
The Incurables had some very cool opportunities to play outdoor stages last year - Highlights were - Rockin on the Riverfront Detroit Mi in which we won the opening spot for Vince Neil of Motley Crue fame! Also The Incurables cruisin anthem "Detroit Steel" won a spot on the Motor City Muscle Rock Album Volume One as well as affording us the opportunity to play the Inaugural Motor City Muscle Festival in Downtown Detroit!!
This Year we are working on some of those same opportunities as well as expanding beyond!!
Currently The Incurables have been invited to play the 2019 International Beatles on the Beach Festival in Delray Beach Fl. April 25-28th!!
They are great musicians and definitley worth a check out, their cover of "Wonderful tonight" whilst paying homage to an original stands out on it's own and the bands album "I don't feel so well" has a great offering of tracks not to be missed!
