Soca Jukebox Announces the New Album This Is Soca Jukebox

 

Kansas City, MO - Soca Jukebox is proud to announce their live music release, THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX, the sophomore compilation album from the Kansas City-based, Reggae/Rock quintet.  This anxiously awaited album will be available on compact disc or through digital download internationally beginning September 29, 2018

 

    THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX is a menagerie of Island rock music with arrangements of familiar, uplifting hits in reggae, classic rock, country and pop.  The music is both high-energy and familiar from a rhythm-oriented cast of multi-instrumentalist and good friends.  Each tune on the album was selected and arranged by the group collective.  The results make for a wide variety of pieces perfect for the band’s unique instrumentation (featuring Caribbean steel pans and tons or latin percussion) and range of genre while retaining the organic feeling and intensity found in the cohesion of a working band.  Clay Johnston’s vocals alongside steel pans, electric guitars, drums drums and more drums, bass, and backing gang vocals create a unique texture where reggae meets rock for a totally live but landlocked production.

 

    THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX was pulled together from two live concert performances at Kansas City’s Voodoo Lounge at Harrah’s Casino.  Riley says, “The crew at the Voodoo takes great care of the artists who perform there with a great stage presentation, the amazing lighting and sound production.  They also will record your show live to ProTools which is like getting both birds with the proverbial single stone.”  The album was mixed and mastered by Matthew Russo in Kansas City.

 

LIFE AGAIN includes two original songs co-written by the band and many other classic and contemporary hits from The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Jason Mraz, The Beatles, Sublime, Bob Marley, Paul Simon and the Old Crow Medicine Show.

 

    The original album artwork features photos of the band in action and on the road as well as some fun dedications to each band member.

    

THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX comes from the band’s real life touring and performing experiences and reflects the entertaining show they present to audiences around the country.  “We play music for the people”,  Johnston says.  “We are coming together to make a connection through great, fun music.  This album is simply a representation of that spirit.  We work and play in it.  It’s a pretty amazing thing.”  

    

    A THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX release party for the band and album will be held from 7:00 – 10:00 PM, Saturday, September 29 - Jake’s Steakhouse, St. Joseph MO.  Soca Jukebox will be performing as well as having the album available for purchase.  The public is welcome and invited.

 

THIS IS SOCA JUKEBOX is available on CD and by digital download around the globe via the world wide web at places like iTunes, Amazon, Cdbaby and www.socajukebox.com.  You can download the entire album or select individual tracks.  The album is poised for wide-release starting September 29, 2018 and can be found at the band’s live shows.
