Reckless & Wild (R.A.W.)
Reckless & Raw to invade Maxwell’s in Hoboken
If you had to describe it, you’d think straight-ahead, honest, “Jersey-style” rock. Generally upbeat, not too heavy, with good lyrics and interesting instrumentation. You might not be able to think of a band to compare them to, but you’ll surely get the vibe of an early 80’s sound.
Who is Reckless & Raw?
“Reckless and Wild, a five piece band from Westfield, NJ, plays original rock music in a classic style with a modern twist. Songwriters John Cote and Ray Roberts pen upbeat tunes in a variety of rock genres. Whether an anthem, pop tune or love song, the music is always well-crafted, tuneful, and creatively orchestrated. The band knows how to keep the audience engaged.”
The band consists of: John Cote (guitars), Bill Cook (cello), Ray Roberts (guitars and violin), Ken Bigelow (bass) and David Crenshaw (drums).
They’re playing for the very affordable price of $7, and start at 9 pm, so even workaholics can get there on time. Oddly, a house music band named Spektrum is opening for them.
Here’s a sample of “Night Fever” (perfect considering what will happen tonight in Hoboken!)
