The Lique, one of Vegas’ hottest bands, performs alongside members of the Las Vegas Young Artists Orchestra. The Lique is made up of Rasar (Emcee/Rapper), Sean Carbone (Guitar), Jason Corpuz (Keys), Jeremy Klewicki (Drums), and Nick Schmitt (Bass). This is a going to be a multi-genre musical experience as the jazz/funk/hip-hop quintet joins members of the classical LVYAO. This show is not to be missed!
The Lique’s (pronounced “Leak”) debut album, “Democracy Manifest,” is the culmination of an 18 month journey together and the beginning of a multi-genre musical experience complete with a4-piece band, spoken wordsmith, and a buoyant stage presence comprised of storytelling, fan interaction, and choreographed routines; all served with a suit and tie. The band’s history is deeply rooted in Las Vegas, by way of Rasar’s hometown of Sacramento, CA. It was in Vegas where an impromptu jam session between Rasar (MC), Jason (Keys), Sean (Guitar), Nick (Bass), and Jeremy (Drums) would eventually lead to being recognized as one of the “10 Acts To Watch in 2016” by Las Vegas Weekly, a prominent national feature in “AFROPUNK” as well as being named “Best Band” by Vegas Seven Magazine.
This self-released project was spawned on the stages of the Sacramento & Vegas club scene and came of age at 11th Street Records in Downtown LV. Sold out clubs and show’s, featuring original music on the Las Vegas strip, became synonymous with The Lique and any of the bands live performances. This notoriety would earn them headlining gigs at “Brooklyn Bowl” in New York and Las Vegas, a main stage performance at “Life Is Beautiful Music Festival” as well as the cover of “Las Vegas Weekly” and “Submerge Magazine” in Sacramento. With songs like Batman, The Frequency, Billie’s Holiday, and The Suits, The Lique crosses over into many contemporary styles creating a modern fusion of live hip-hop. Musically, inspirations range from Janelle Monae to The Roots with Rasar “delivering quick- witted, rapid fire verses over classic hip-hop grooves.”
