The San Francisco Bay Area has always been a sanctuary for the creative thinker. Just-Truckin takes it's place in the Bay Area music scene with talent, experience and an eclectic blend of original songs. The band has seven members including a dynamic female lead vocalist and a rockin horn section. Bandleader and guitarist/songwriter Ken Simms put the band together in 2004 and music fans immediately took notice. The sound is bluesy with a rock edge and a bit of Latin thrown in. Lead vocalist, Paula Sorce brings years of experience as a performer, studio singer and songwriter. Her vocals have been described as "soulful and electrifying". Studio drum wizard Jethro DeFries, also writes, sings and produces the band. Super funk James Prothro on Bass and vocals brings great energy and a rock solid bottom. The Just-Truckin horns include the amazing Mario Vega on Sax and Flute and the fabulous Manny Angel on Trumpet and Flugelhorn. Finally Dave Coldren rocks the house with great keys and vocals. The CD "Fearless" features 10 original songs and one tribute to Janis Joplin on the cut "Maybe". Track 3 "Evolution" is the bands statement about our environment and the title cut "Fearless" is singer Paula Sorce's life story. "Rock the Nation" and "Do you Believe" are as pumping as "Makin My Way South" and "Over and Over" are thoughtful. "Full Moon High Tide" and "All Day Blues" are rock blues at it's best. "1969" is about San Francisco during the hey-day and "Storm Comin On" remembers New Orleans. Just-Truckin has been featured twice on the Don Sanchez entertainment report on ABC7 News San Francisco and continue to play venues all over California. If you still believe in music that will rock you, touch you and lift you all at the same time, come check out this band.
