The members of the band, Juice, first met while attending college together in Boston. Soon, the group realized their shared passion for music together and formed the band in 2014 with vocalist Ben Stevens, violinist & vocalist Christian Rose, guitarist & vocalist Kamau Burton, guitarist Daniel Moss, guitarist Michael Ricciardulli, bassist Rami El-Abidin, and drummer Miles Clyatt. After graduating, the group decided to pursue what had previously been just a side gig, releasing their first EP, Workin’ on Lovin’. After this release, the band embarked on an independent, self-funded tour for a year and a half across the nation. And after their perspective-changing travels, they decided to compile their experiences into another EP, you are simply magnificent. The collective is heavily influenced by the music of the ’90s and the 2000s.
The projects that Juice has thus released have all confronted difficult emotions: loneliness, lack of direction, hopelessness, and love. But, somehow, in all of their music lies elements of hope and positivity. With their most recent release of the single, “DiCaprio (Love Me All the Time)” is another take on the intangibilities of life. And on September 3rd, the Bay Area will get to see Juice’s performance of this new single and all of their other hits live at Brick & Mortar Music Hall.
