Cleveland OH - The quintessential good time rock n roll band Tesla will bring its bare bones rock n roll show to Cleveland’s House of Blues August 19th and they are bringing the hits with them . The band is often lumped into the generic hair metal genre however they are much more then that . The first band to do MTV unplugged ( when MTV still featured music ) they were trendsetters in the day and still make no musical compromises. The new album” Simplicity “ is a fourteen track musical armada that dives into what is current what is past and what we all feel inside . The first track is “ MP3” which is about how everything so digital and how society wants everything instantly . Another favorite song is “ Rise and Fall “ is about how everything has it ups and down , be it relationships or stardom . The powerful vocals of singer Jeff Keith on “ So Divine “ and the intricate guitar work of Dave Rude and long time guitarist Frank Hannon really compliment each other . The bluesy feel of “Cross My Heart “ really touches the soul .The soft melody of “Honestly “ can speak volumes to anyone who has lived . Its about being honest with everyone include yourself . The rocking number “ Flip Side “ is not a serious song but a fun song .I can image people in the audience dancing with this one as it gives an uplifting feeling .The sad “ Other Then Me “ is for everyone who ever had a break up and the questions it raises but even thou the subject is sad the song is great .” Break of Dawn “ immediately speeds up and reminds that is a hard rock band and why we loved them to start with .The band promised besides playing the new songs to bring the classics with them including the mega hit “ Signs , Love Song and my friends personal favorite “ What You Give “ .The members of Tesla are Jeff Keith on vocals , Brian Wheat on bass, Troy Luccketta on drums and Frank Hannon and Dave Rude on guitars . The band is at the start of a nationwide tour and please check out their official http://teslatheband.com/website to check tour dates and order “ Simplicity “
