The Lique’s (pronounced “Leak”) debut album, “Democracy Manifest,” is the culmination of an 18 month journey together. It also represents the beginning of a multi-genre musical experience, complete with a 4-piece band, spoken wordsmith, and a buoyant stage presence comprised of storytelling, fan interaction, and choreographed routines…all served with a suit and tie. The band’s history is deeply rooted in Las Vegas, by way of Rasar’s hometown of Sacramento, CA. An impromptu Vegas jam session between Rasar (MC), Jason (Keys), Sean (Guitar), Nick (Bass), and Jeremy (Drums) eventually led to their recognition. Kudos include “10 Acts To Watch in 2016” by Las Vegas Weekly, a prominent national feature in “AFROPUNK”, and being named “Best Band” by Vegas Seven Magazine.
This self-released project spawned on the stages of the Sacramento & Vegas club scenes and came of age at 11th Street Records in Downtown LV. Sold-out clubs and shows featuring original music on the Las Vegas strip became synonymous with The Lique and any of the band’s live performances. This notoriety would earn them headlining gigs at “Brooklyn Bowl” in New York and Las Vegas, a main stage performance at “Life Is Beautiful Music Festival” as well as the cover of “Las Vegas Weekly” and “Submerge Magazine” in Sacramento. With songs like Batman, The Frequency, Billie’s Holiday, and The Suits, The Lique crosses over into many contemporary styles creating a modern fusion of live hip-hop. Musically, inspirations range from Janelle Monae to The Roots with Rasar “delivering quick- witted, rapid fire verses over classic hip-hop grooves.”
