Drive!

We are pleased to announce the return of Drive! after a five year hiatus. For 2019, Drive! founding member Ray Buyco (guitar, vocals) has gathered an all new team of seasoned veterans to produce a powerful groove-based quartet with a full vocal harmony sound. The improvisational approach of the band complete with searing guitar solos, dramatic musical dynamics, and in the moment impromptu song transitions, remain trademarks of the Drive! live performance. Additionally, the band’s repertoire continues to span the genres and the decades, covering artists ranging from Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, and Luke Bryan, to the Rolling Stones, Beatles, and Johnny Cash.

This powerful new lineup is anchored by veteran drummer/vocalist Jackie Enx (formerly with Rhinobucket and Warrior) and bassist/vocalist Ron Bushard (Element and RB3, and formerly with Wild at Heart and the Likes). Fronting the new band along with Ray Buyco is vocalist Steve Hollingsworth. Mr Hollingsworth’s lengthy resume includes stints with Velvet Jones, the Switch, the Rush tribute band 2112, the Elton John tribute band Bennie and the Jets, Release, and the award winning De Anza Jazz singers (1991-1994). Steve Hollingsworth is a singers’ singer––his intonation is consistently 99% perfect, and he has full power across his four octave vocal range.

There is no doubt that Drive! enjoys the high energy setting of the outdoor summer concert. That said, Drive! takes pride in its disciplined volume control, so you can rest assured that the band is the appropriate choice for all events, including in venues where decibel levels must be kept relatively low or even quiet. Drive! is the perfect choice for weddings or corporate parties where the first hour or two must be quiet, but the last hour or two must be kicked into a (reasonably) high gear.

Drive! offers the option of adding a female vocalist to the line up. This cost effective option effectively doubles the bands repertoire, allowing the band to make soulful musical statements on classic female vocal hits from Patti LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade” to modern hits like Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance.”
