Get a taste of Peanut Butter Lovesicle in Grand Junction Jan. 10
The Radio Room at KAFM Community Radio will rock and roll Friday, Jan. 10, when Peanut Butter Lovesicle takes the stage following two local bands — Bronco Country and Wave Baby.
Peanut Butter Lovesicle is a Pennsylvania trio that was based in Brooklyn for a few years, before returning to their native Keystone state.
Guitar-player and back-up vocalist Jake D’Arc describes their music as a variation of psychedelic blues rock, combined with an early 1990s rock sound and a little rap. D’Arc is joined by his brother, Mike D’Arc, who sings lead and plays bass, and their cousin Timmy Miller on drums and lead vocals.
It’s been a good year for the band, who performed last summer at the four-day arts and music Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. Their current two-week run in Colorado includes seven gigs and will be the group’s first time performing in the state.
They write their own music, although — depending on the show — they may cover a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers or the Pixies, and occasionally a Led Zeppelin tune.
The trio formed in Ocean City, N.J., in the summer of 2009; since then they’ve performed around New York and throughout southern California. They’ve also toured the United Kingdom on three occasions. They once spent three months in London, where they played 30 shows.
The group’s singles — “State of I” and “Black Eyed Blues” — were both featured on the Cable television show “Gossip Girls” after one of the show’s actors started regularly coming to their New York performances and arranged to have their music on his program, D’Arc said.
Their first CD, called “Heavy Days Wildcat Craze,” was followed by “Dirty Pride,” produced by legendary Henry Hirsch, who worked with Lenny Kravitz, Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger.
Their new single “Jealous Minds” was released in October 2013 and is available digitally.
After Colorado, the band heads for a radio show in Tampa, Fla.
