New Band Alert - The Electric Aces
Author: Adam Signore (01/29/23)
I had the distinct pleasure to attend the debut performance of a new Central MA band called the Electric Aces. The band is the brainchild of guitarist Chris Seremetis, who sought out players who could share his vision, collaborate and perform at a high level. Lizzie Leis, who I have had the pleasure seeing perform many times brings her thunder on vocals, Area veteran Dan Carter is pounding on bass. All three are veterans of the local cover band scene, Chris from ELEVEN, Lizzie from Project Alice, and Dan from Gloomy Sunday. All bands I have seen BTW. After a lengthy search for a new drummer, Nick Irvin was brought aboard. This is Nick's first band.
While the band is very new, the players are not. The Electric Aces had their first rehearsal in late August 2022, and their first 3-song EP Powertrip was recorded in November at Jeff Instasi's studio (Six To One fame). Bad Marriage's Mike Fitz was brought in to mastered the tracks.
OK, a little about the show. From start to finish the show was full throttle. With a mix of cover's, like Motorhead's Born To Raise Hell, Some zeppelin for good measure and killer originals like the final tune Follow Me Down. This show did not let up. Lizzie Leis' vocal powers are pretty unparalleled, Dan thunders on Bass, Chris on guitar is simply scorching and newcomer Nick Irvin rocks that kit. new music is in the works and definitely looking forward to it!
