Dan Luke and the Raid bring their psych-pop to The Saint

Tahoe Onstage
Dan Luke and the Raid’s vocal harmonies and guitar tones stir comparisons to The Beatles.

Daniel Shultz, 21, is the little brother.

Perhaps you’ve heard of his big brothers. Matt Shultz, 35, is lead singer for Cage the Elephant, while Brad, 33, is that band’s rhythm guitarist.

But guitarist Dan Shultz fronts his own band now, the psych-pop rockers Dan Luke and the Raid, which opens Saturday for the Soft White Sixties at The Saint in midtown Reno.

Growing up in the country outside Bowling Green, Kentucky, Shultz told Entertainment Weekly: “It was an interesting environment. We were rambunctious.” The magazine compared Dan Luke and the Raid’s music to “The Beatles at their ‘Helter Skelter’ heaviest, early My Morning Jacket (and) Pavement.”

Drummer Kendrick Brent, Shultz’s friend since high school, bassist Dylan Graves and keyboardist Anthony Joiner round out the band. In June, they released their first single, “Black Cat Heavy Metal” to strong reviews, followed by a second single in September, “Golden Age,” an ode to growing up in these crazy times.

Before linking up with the Soft White Sixties fall tour, Dan Luke and the Raid opened in recent weeks for Okey Dokey, Ron Gallo and The Weeks.

Tickets for Saturday’s show at The Saint are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, which opens at 8 p.m.
