Pueblo's premier classic rock band, KRUSH, will perform for the Fowler Fall Festival Street Dance, on Saturday, Sept. 21.
KRUSH has been playing around the southern Colorado area for several years. Undergoing several personnel changes, the bad has also gone through additional music style changes as well. Buck Gibbons was KRUSH's original bass player. Hailing from Missouri, Buck has played with the likes of Jeanie C. Riley, and many others during the time he spent in Nashville, Tenn. Buck, Michael and John Marrella, had been playing together for several years when they hooked up with Jill Michaels, the rest ... is a story that is still being told. Buck has returned and is now a member of Broken Angel. With their current lineup, KRUSH is able to cover all the bases of musicality needed to get the job done. From Hollywood, Calif., Jill Michaels performs lead vocals, rhythm acoustic and electric guitars, delivering a songbird voice and driving guitar behind popular songs. From San Antonio, Texas, vocals, lead and acoustic guitars are performed my Michael Feliciano and on the drums is Chris Trujillo. Although KRUSH is considered a "classic rock" band, the group is able to perform several styles of music, ranging from country, jazz, '60s, '70s and '80s rock, as well as some original music from the songwriting of Jill Michaels. KRUSH has employed the services of a keyboardist from time to time. Dave Carleo and Phil Brown have helped on several occasions. KRUSH has played some major events in southern Colorado, such as The B Street Bash in Pueblo, Kick in the Butt BBQ in Florence, Holy Smoke BBQ Festival in Canon City, Music at the Junction in La Junta, Oktoberfest in La Veta, 4th of July in Cuchara, and the Apple Blossom Festival in Canon City to name a few. KRUSH's format is mainly classic rock, although it does play its share of great country music as well. As you listen to KRUSH take you through popular songs of the years past, you will be reminded of the time and the songs we all have come to love and remember.
