Gig of the Week 

Nyne Lyvz, September 16 and 17

Being in a rock band is a tough gig. It may look like fun and--I know from experience--it is. But it's also hard work. Most of the time, bands don't make much money (if any) off of a show so everyone in the band usually has a day job. That means squeezing in rehearsals, family obligations and day-to-day living. It also means that often a band loses a member or two before finding people who can and will commit to the cause. After a lot of time working on the right combination, Nyne Lyvz has a combination that seems to be working.

Nyne Lyvz is J.C. Currier on guitar, Danny Machesini on vocals, guitar and keyboard, Kolleen Shelley on vocals, Clay Porter on drums and Jack Hourcade on bass. Playing since 1999, Nyne Lyvz in its many forms has always had their basis in rock, with members opening for acts such as The Pretenders, Steppenwolf, Heart and Grand Funk Railroad.

Over the years, Nyne Lyvz has opened their sound up to include more contemporary rock songs with Maroon 5 and No Doubt covers, but still stay true to roots rock with lots of Skynyrd, REO Speedwagon (see Road Show), the Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Clapton. The songs are all familiar, sure, but Nyne Lyvz brands each tune with their own sound. On their Web site at, they have a page that lists some of their sets. With songs like "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benetar, "Wild Night" by Van Morrison, "Mustang Sally" by the Young Rascals and AC/DC's "Back in Black," you can just bet your bippy that even if you're not prone to prance, you'll find yourself out shaking your groove thing on the dance floor.

September 16 and 17, 9 p.m., no cover, Mr. Lucky's,
