Tesla Comes To Westbury 11/5
Tesla Comes to the Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury on Thur - s day, November 5 at 8 p.m. Tesla is a multi-platinum-selling rock band from Northern California known for their melodic songs and down to earth appeal.
The band formed in 1984 in Sac - ramento as City Kidd, and was renamed Tesla during the recording of their first album, 1986's Mecha - nical Resonance. The album was followed by The Great Radio Con - tro versy which helped solidify the band's growing reputation and fan base and produced the hit single "Love Song."
In 1990, Tesla released Five Man Acoustical Jam, a live album featuring acoustic renditions of hits such as "Cumin' Atcha Live," "Gettin' Better," "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Love Song." The album also featured a number of covers, most notably a version of "Signs," a 1971 hit by the Five Man Electrical Band. The following year the band released their third studio album Psychotic Supper, which the band members themselves consider to be their best album.
Tesla went on to release eight more albums including their newest release Forever More. The album debuted at No. 33 on The Billboard 200 chart and spawned the singles "I Wanna Live," "Fallin' Apart" and "Breakin' Free." Tesla's 2009 For - ever More tour gives their audience a 25-year musical journey that keeps the loyal fans coming back and has newcomers realizing, "WOW, I didn't know they did that song!" Current band members include Jeff Keith on lead vocals, Frank Hannon on guitar, organ, Hammond organ and backing vocals, Dave Rude on guitar and backing vocals, Brian Wheat on bass, piano and backing vocals and Troy Luccketta on drums.
