Crimson Sky and Isaac Bear to open concert

As opening acts for Prime Directive this Friday at the Mother Lode Lions Hall, Crimson Sky and Isaac Bear are set to delight the crowd with unique musical styles. Like Prime Directive, their aim is to please and to provide a divine musical experience.

Crimson Sky takes the stage at 7 p.m., starting the night off with wholesome energy.

“This is our vocalist Celeste Tauchar’s first show with us, and we’re looking forward to introducing her,” said Ryan Ladd, the bass guitarist.

“Our featured rapper is Joseph Lopez,” Ladd, 17, said. “Our music takes you on a journey … and we always keep it positive.”

Paul Tasaka is the guitarist and Christian Klausner plays the drums. Ladd, who is a junior at Union Mine High School, started playing guitar when he was 7 years old.

Crimson Sky has gone through some changes, but Ladd and Tasaka “kept at it,” and they’re hoping that their current group doesn’t fade into the sunset.

In fact, they plan to change the name of the band after the CD comes out this summer. There are several other groups using the name, so they hope to keep the same spirit with a new moniker. Before finding Tauchar and Lopez, they were doing instumental sets.

Ladd said that Crimson Sky “incorporates a lot of sounds” and has a “progressive” musical style. The group’s Website is under re-development, but they can be found on Facebook and My Space.

Bears gone good

Following Crimson Sky, a trio of playful, musical bears will take the stage. Actually, Isaac Bear is the new incarnation of Overlay, which is just coming out of hibernation. Overlay used to play at the Cozmic Café, the Boardwalk and other venues, but working fulltime and taking college classes precluded taking gigs for a while.

They named the group Isaac Bear after a cartoon character created by their bass guitarist Scottie Urquehart, 23, a 2005 graduate of El Dorado High School. But when they looked up the name Isaac Bear, they were delighted to share the name of a man who truly cared for society.

Isaac Bear was a man who started food banks back in the day. “We thought: this is cool, since music’s kind of our way of giving back to our community,” said Keith Silson, 22, of Placerville. He and the drummer, Stevan Jenkins, 22, graduated from McClatchley High School in Sacramento.

Silson, who plays guitar and sings, said that Isaac Bear plays a mixture of rock n roll “with a funky, bluesy” twist.

Since they’re just now getting back into playing, they can still be found on My Space under the Overlay name.

“We’re really looking forward to Friday night,” said Silson. “With Crimson Sky, Prime Directive … and Isaac Bear, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.”
