Wild Ride were a power trio, the incarnation of a new faith in rock ‘n’ roll, with a leading man, Marek Lisiak, bringing up the muscular riffs and vocals, softened by drummer Kerri Berry’s vocal participation. It was an energetic and classic blues-rock set, filled with catchy melodies, hard-hitting at the right places, offering a broad diversity at the top of the wild guitar solos, which ended up with the always-popular Motorhead cover ‘Ace of Spade’.

Wild Ride’s “Wheels On Fire” album review: I found the music catchy, energetic, melodic and diverse with lots of character and spirit within the song structures, the musicianship is thrilling throughout the album, I think the band sound great and you have made a diverse record that I think our readers would enjoy. Good solid vibe, great production, excellent songwriting, maybe a little retro classic blues rock groove in there as well. - Nicky Baldrian, Two Side Moon Promotions, Fireworks Magazine

Wild Ride is a San Fernando Valley band that are heading out for a tour of Europe for a summer jaunt. This was the warm up show for this three piece unit. It features a female drummer who sings a little bit too. The music is fun pop with a little edge of alternative dashed around at times. The spunky fun set of songs included You Get There (Sticky Wheels) and Believe In Angels. A wonderful highlight of the set was a great song called I’m A Kitchen Rocker. Of course while the main meals were being served and finished during this bands set of songs this one was well fitting and the crowd liked it.
