Review and Interview with Stacey Blades of Electric Radio Kings
Review/Interview/Photos by Leah Burlington
We are with guitarist Stacey Blades from the new upcoming rock band Electric Radio Kings. They just dropped a new EP ‘Lights Fantastic,’ which includes four original songs and a Stone Temple Pilots cover. They recorded the EP in Vegas at Danny Koker’s Desert Moon Studio and it was produced by AJ St. James.
Electric Radio Kings also played their first show as a band with their new original music at Koker’s club, Count’s Vamp’d on Friday, December 8th to a great crowd. They played a short and sweet set of their originals and two covers. The crowd was up on their feet dancing and rocking out to their music! After talking with several people after the show, the consensus was, this is a kick ass new rock n roll band with great energy! They left us wanting more… and more!
