Reggae-influenced alternative rock band Iration brings their “Heatseekers Winter Tour 2018” to Reno Wednesday, Jan. 31 at Cargo Concert Hall.
Iration’s deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds. “We’re all about luv,” states the band.
Iration, formed in Isla Vista, California, features Micah Pueschel (guitar/lead vocals), Adam Taylor (bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth), and Micah Brown (guitar/vocals). Most of the members met while growing up in Hawaii, but reconnected in California around 2004. Brown, a California native, officially joined the group in 2014.
The band recently released two singles. “Fly With Me” debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Single chart just before their national 2017 summer tour. “Borderlines” has spent months in rotation at alternative stations from Miami to Las Vegas.
I’ve seen these guys before, and like many enjoyable reggae shows, it’s always a very friendly atmosphere. Not only is the crowd friendly, they’re having a great time rocking to the great music and dancing the entire show.
Supporting acts include The Movement and Tyrone’s Jacket. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Pre-sale tickets for the all-ages show are on sale at https://www.cargoreno.com/. General admission tickets are $22.94 plus taxes and fees.
John Tuckness has been photographing rock concerts in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area and as far as Northern California since 2004. He tries to attend as many shows as he can. John knew he wanted to be a concert photographer when he went to his first concert, Kiss and Montrose way back in 1976. He saw three guys shooting the show and thought to himself, “that’s what I want to do.” After many years of undercover work (sneaking his camera into venues), he finally got noticed and started getting photo passes through PR people and the bands. John has had many of his photos published in newspapers, websites and band autobiographies.
