Eugene rock and blues trio Inner Limits will release their second album this weekend, with a pair of gigs at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City.
This energetic band weaves original material and unique arrangements of solid, classic rock and blues songs into their sets. The group frequently headlines regional craft beer and music festivals and keeps a busy performance schedule at wineries, breweries and casinos. The band consists of Olem Alves on guitar, Jesse Greenlee on drums and Torrey Newhart on keyboards. All three members are vocalists.
The new album, “Rewrites Vol.1,” sees the group bring their authentic creativity and style to some familiar favorites. They have put their own stamp on some of the most iconic songs in popular music while honoring the soul of the original songs.
This process began when they decided to completely rearrange the Kinks’ iconic “Sunny Afternoon” and has evolved into an introspective musical journey that brings new life to classic hits.
They altered the chord progression on the chorus of “Paint It Black,” added technically challenging lines to “Foxy Lady,” changed the time signature on the iconic Beatles song “Come Together,” added lush vocal harmonies to the chorus of “In A Broken Dream” and had the tenacity to tackle Aerosmith’s legendary “Dream On,” giving it a fresh new sound.
The group will take to the stage at 8 pm this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8 and 9, at Chinook’s Seafood Grill, 1501 NW 40th Place.
