The Priscilla Rose Band is returning to the live stage.
Like a lot of West Valley bands, the combo had to sit out during the coronavirus outbreak the past few months as venues closed and gigs dried up.
The band usually plays around 10 gigs a month, and in May singer Priscilla Pinches, a Glendale resident, said their summer schedule was “on hold.”
“As a band, we’ve easily lost over $1,000, and depending upon duration of the virus threat, we could lose hundreds of dollars more,” she told the Independent at the time, as the band took to performing via live streamed events online.
That all changes with an in-person gig this month.
The Priscilla Rose Band performs its brand of classic rock, blues and pop at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24 at Janey’s Cave Creek, 6602 E. Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek.
“It’s been a long summer,” drummer, and Peoria resident, Greg McWhorter said. “Because of the virus, we had a lot of gigs canceled. This outdoor venue is a real game-changer.”
Rounding out the combo are Goodyear resident Ray Carter on bass and vocals, and Sun City resident Rich La Rose on guitar and vocals.
