An evening of rock ’n’ roll at Sonoma Moose Lodge

Head to Sonoma Moose the afternoon of Feb. 24 for an evening of live music featuring three rock ‘n’ roll bands.|

The Moose Lodge just down Broadway in Sonoma, will be rocking hard the afternoon of Feb. 24.

Local bands The Illegitimate AC/DC, Dr.!ven and Noetic Pause will plug in their amps, pedals, mics and public address systems to perform original rock ’n’ roll from 4 p.m. into the evening.

The Illegitimate AC/DC group is a spot-on tribute “to the greatest rock band ever,” according to the band’s website. They promise to recreate an AC/DC experience that highlights the Bon Scott era yet dips its toes into Brian Johnson material.

The band’s frontman is the youthful and energetic vocalist Will Cotter, and Bob Taylor slips on the short-pants school uniform of Angus Young.

James Marshall Berry plays a convincing Cliff Williams, providing a heavy bottom end with his bass guitar. Rick Durocher is the drummer, and Bobby Tater plays lead guitar. Joey V. on rhythm guitar is the “new guy,” according to Taylor.

Don’t miss the crowd-pleasing, high energy group at the Lodge.

Dr.!ven has performed in Sonoma for many years, playing original songs and setting up behind the wildly entertaining Jon S. Williams.

In addition to vocalist and rhythm guitarist Williams, the band includes percussionist Mark Gallagher, lead guitarist Dustin Smart, bassist Alex Johnson and drummer Louis A. Montes.

Noetic Pause is an up and coming trio composed of youthful talent; and I do mean young as these three are in high school.

Guitarist Rowan Chance and bassist Lincoln Harwood are 16 years old and are accompanied by 13-year-old drummer Cassin Palladini.

The trio plays a powerful style of rock, fine-tuned in the Sonoma garages of their proud parents. They play a mix of originals and covers, the latter focused on songs from the 1980s. Noetic Pause will open the show at the Lodge.

This full rock ’n’ roll evening, in addition to superb music, will offer a full bar. Food will also be available. Admission is suggested at a $10 donation; $25 includes lunch.

The Moose Lodge is typically a private social club. For this event, it is open to all Moose members and guests.
