People of all ages are invited to enjoy the musical stylings of Jule Vera on Oct. 17 at The Railyard. The local band will be performing one night only, and members Ansley Newman, Jake Roland, Will Stacey, Kyle Horvarth and Austin Jones will take the stage at 8 p.m.
Jule Vera started as a few teenagers playing and writing songs at their homes. It was 2013 when the group became Jule Vera, meaning “young truth” in Greek. Before long, they were signed to a record label. The band falls under the Alternative genre and describes its music as “raw pop melodies and emotional lyrics that fit in a rock groove.” They have been influenced by bands like The Killers, Queen and No Doubt.
The upcoming show is special because the band members are from the Opelika area, and they will have the opportunity to play another “hometown show” before they leave for their North American tour with Against the Current and Vinyl Theatre. The rising stars’ first single “One Little String” is available now, and their EP album is on Pure Noise Records.
Tickets to the show are available at Spicer’s Music, Musictown Records and Round House. The cost is $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
