The 2008 Jagermeiester Music Tour recently made it’s stop in Worcester, MA. On the bill – Rev Theory, Trapt, and Hinder. Rev Theory (Rich Luzzi on vocals, Matty McCloskey on bass, Julien Jorgensen on guitar, Dave Agoglia on drums and Rikki Lixx on guitar) released their sophomore album “Light it Up’ in June of this year, their first album on a major label. While the band may be new to big time labels, they are no stranger to the struggles of keeping their heads above water. They didn’t get where they are overnight, it’s been an uphill battle all the way and one they wouldn’t trade for the world.
With the two single off of the album (Hell Yeah and Light it Up) being heard all over the place from video games to The National Football League I was looking forward to meeting the band behind the in your face rockers like Favorite Disease and Wanted Man to gut wrenching ballads like Broken Bones.
As I sat down in the back lounge of their tour bus with frontman Rich Luzzi and guitarist Julien Jorgensen I couldn’t help but feel the the calm before the storm. Both guys were incredibly laid back and easy to talk to, but I knew before long, their alter egos would take over the stage and offer up the kind of rock show that some bands can only dream of delivering. In what I thought was the best set of the night Rev Theory ripped the roof off of The Palladium with their energy and left the fans wanting a lot more….and something tells me they’ll be getting just that. This band is just getting started…
