Regardless, the tailgating part of the party was fun. It was cool to actually chat it up with some of the local artists and bands, even if there were some uneasiness. Conversations ranged from Sol Distric being not able to jam out and rock the house party (major bummer), Sarah Palin, politics, and my red Members Only jacket.
In the midst of one of the heated discuissions on voting, hope, change and Barack Obama the conversation was put to an aburupt stop – the lead singer of Soul Opus, Mike Reyes, came up and announced to the tailgaters that they were going to be taking the stage any minute.
Right before Soul Opus went on, in the heat of the moment of everyone voicing their fustrartions Steven Preston and I were able to catch an interview with Mike Reyes. A lot was thrown out on the table, in a verbal sense.
With that being said, I was very intrigued and interested to see Soul Opus’s live show and we headed into the house party to check them out.
After a night somewhat filled with fustration and disapointment of not being able to see some of my favorite bands/crews, I was really happy and appreciative to catch Soul Opus’s set. The positive vibe of Soul Opus’s reggae inspired sound invited all the party guests to forget their worries, get in their zone, and just feel good.
The crowd was very energized which made this house party extra fun. I was very impressed by the musicianship of each member of Soul Opus. They are definitely rock stars.
All was fine and dandy in the steady flowin’, positive vibin’ Soul Opus party untill someone steped up to the band and told them that they just couldn’t take it anymore – it was their turn to play and they wanted to go on.
Classic Cult got the hint and walked off stage.
But, no worries, there were no hard feelings, all is fun and games in the CV party scene.
