The White Oranges has recorded five of its six studio albums at Monument Audio in Lansing, a DIY recording studio run by Andy Jeglic of the progressive-metal band Orc, but has never played a show in the capital city — until now. The band will make its Lansing performance debut 6 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 16) at EagleMonk Pub and Brewery, playing three full sets throughout the evening. The show is free to attend and is open to all ages.
The band formed in 2012 with Justin O'Kelly on vocals and guitar and Kyle Roksiewicz on drums. Later, bassist Corey Potchynok and lead guitarist Josh Story joined the fold. O’Kelly said the group is best labeled as an indie-rock or straight-up rock ‘n’ roll band.
“We kind of pull influences from all over the place,” he said. “Our four members all listen to very different music from one another. It’s kind of like a four-part Venn diagram, and in the middle is rock ‘n’ roll.”
The band will play all original songs during its three sets.
“It’ll be a good mix of heavier rock songs, some acoustic songs, so there’s gonna be a wide variation of music. I think there will be a little bit of something for everybody,” O’Kelly said. “The four of us are really looking forward to it. Not only to play for some familiar faces but to meet some of the Lansing people and support EagleMonk. We really want to put together a good show for those guys since they extended the offer to have us play.”
