While Paco Lipps used to be the solo stage name for musician Mike Rocha back in 2016, the name has since taken on a whole new meaning. “Paco Lipps” marks the beginning of a new era in music, not only for the music industry, but for each individual band member of this five-piece band, striving to create fresh, innovative content for their listeners.
The group has blossomed in both sound and success. The sound of Paco Lipps is constantly evolving, most closely described as psychedelic rock with rich hints of R&B, blues, soul, and more. Mike Rocha, guitarist, and Christopher Lucas, guitarist, both effectively blend their guitar leads in a way that brings life into each and every song. Chris McDowell, bassist, and Travis Barrett Rudd, drummer, both stylistically keep the rhythmic flow of each song sharp and refined. Victoria Romero, vocals, ties each song together with diverse dynamics and powerful tone quality.
Having the opportunity to play music across the U.S. has been one of the band’s greatest accomplishments. Paco Lipps has completed a western-focused Summer 2017 tour and is ready to embark on their next project: an even bigger Summer 2018 tour.
The band is open to playing practically anytime, any place, and anywhere. Their hearts are in the music, and their minds are set toward a future of spreading their original music as far and as wide as they possibly can. Paco Lipps plans to release their first official album in 2019.
