Band members age-range spans over 4 decades with generational talent led by lead singer Alex Lucero. The band has released four albums independently that are comprised of both studio and live performances and are currently almost done with a fifth. Alex Lucero & Live Again have received incredible response across Northern California being played regularly on radio rotation, including the well known KPIG 107.5. With the steamrolling effect of success in late 2019 and 2020 (pre-pandemic), Alex and band plan to finish their most recent album which has been written and recorded since and during COVID-19. Although live performances were put on hold, Alex and band kept busy and stayed relevant live streaming social distanced shows from their studio and were also named "Best Live Stream Show" according to the People's Choice awards in The Santa Cruz Sentinel in late 2020. They took the “slowed down world” as an opportunity to write and almost completely finish their new album entitled "Opportunity". They look forward to the release of their new album and have already started comprising new material for their original projects to come.
