Lucid, a band formed in Plattsburg, NY, has been honing its act in the recording studio and with live performances across the North Country for the past seven years.
They are scheduled to take the stage at the McCauley Music Festival between 7 and 8:30 p.m., on Saturday, August 6.
“Our sound is catchy yet eclectic. The songs get stuck in your head, and there is a very distinct tone,” said Andrew Deller, the band’s keyboardist.
“The influences and the styles we play are wide ranging. But always at the center of it all is a thick thread of rock tying everything together. Our music has a little something for everybody,” he said.
And audiences can be very appreciative. “We get applause, we get hooting and hollering, and sometimes nakedness. They’re always dancing,” Deller said.
Releasing their first album “Miles Deep” in 2005, the group says it focuses on the Three P’s—performance, production, and partying.
The band prides itself in being “the total package,” Deller added.
They can fit onto a postage stamp for an acoustic show, throw down in a backwoods bar for six hours, and pack a hall or pack a field, he said.
Deller’s bandmates are James Armstrong on sax, Kevin Sabourin on guitar, Ryan “Rippy” Trumbull on drums, and Lowell Wurster on percussion. All contribute on vocals.
