Local artists to headline at Pulaski Theatre

PULASKI – On August 21, the Pulaski Theatre will host local band, Divided We Fall, for a Back to School concert. Their music is a combination of rock and progressive and will definitely appeal to those who will be starting school this fall.
Although it hasn’t been that long since the band members were students themselves – all are graduates of Pulaski County High School – they have a lot of years of musical experience between them.
Lead vocalist, Chris Conner, began playing guitar at age 12. Influenced by blues, soul, country and classic rock, he has been in bands since he was 14. He has played with Popular Outcast, Evolution and Tuesday’s Edition. Conner works in radio sales and as a disc jockey, and recently started a small recording studio.
Josh Taylor began playing drums when he was 17 and was a member of The Sidewalk Show. His musical influences included rock, pop and power-pop genres. Credited with supplying the group with “energy and vivacity,” Taylor is a network manager in the Pulaski County School System technology department.
Lead guitarist Bill Bugg has been playing guitar since the age of 12, but he also plays the drums and bass guitar. Metal, classic rock and modern rock have been his influences. Since he was 16, he has been lead guitarist for various bands including Cliffs of Edge and Hollow.
The youngest member of Divided We Fall is Eric Gress, who is bass guitarist. Adding a “youthful, carefree facet” to the group, Gress also plays guitar and drums. He counts punk, country, and rock genres among his influences. He is also leader of August, a popular local band.
Divided We Fall stays busy at various locations throughout Southwest Virginia from Hillsville to Marion to Blacksburg. All members are vocalists. According to Taylor, “we’re a modern rock group … high energy.”
The Pulaski Theatre is located at 14 Main St. in downtown Pulaski. The concert starts at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $10, both in advance and at the door, and are available at Coffee Buy the Book and Martin’s Pharmacy or at www.pulaskitheatre.org.
