Tesla Rocked at Tabernacle Atlanta on May 3



With three decades of music and seven studio albums, Tesla rocked the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA on May 2.  The band is currently on tour in support of their latest disc ‘Simplicity.’

The band began their set with ‘I Wanna Live’ from their previous record, ‘Forever More,’ and they went further back into their discography with ‘Hang Tough’ and ‘Love Song’ off of their sophomore album, ‘The Great Radio Controversy.’

Tesla played a few tracks from ‘Simplicity,’ including their latest single, ‘So Divine,’ as well as the upbeat ‘MP3’ and ‘Ricochet.’ The band as a whole is a lot of fun to see live; frontman Jeff Keith has an animated and charismatic stage presence that is all his own. They have a strong foundation with the percussion skills of Troy Luccketta and the bass lines of original bassist Brian Wheat.

Fans were rocking out all night long especially to older favorites ‘Modern Day Cowboy,’ their hit covers of the Five Man Electric Band’s ‘Signs’ and Ph.D’s ‘Little Suzi.’

The look on Jeff Keith's face is priceless. Whatever it is, Troy Luccketta sees it, too.
