Adelitas Way is hard rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. They originally formed in 2006 and have been writing, recording, and touring ever since. Adelitas Way have their following of faithful fans, but they are a band that falls through the cracks of the bands with big time support.
Unaffected by that lack of music industry help, they continue to do what they love and do it on their own terms. Lead singer, Rick DeJesus for one gives it all he has on the stage and when he isn’t rocking, he is all smiles. His genuine passion and love for what he does is easy to see. There were times at the all-ages show he even made time having fun with his younger fans that attended with their parents. Rick seems to be very down to Earth guy, but when the music kicks back in, this rocker unleashes.
The band went back to their early days with a great, stripped down acoustic version of their song “Closer To You” and rocked “Invincible” in their encore. The band debuted some songs from their up and coming new album, “Notorious” as well. Adelitas Way put on a great live show and are a band worth checking out if you haven’t.

Noteworthy opener, Letters From the Fire (http://lettersfromthefire.net/) gave the fans in attendance a headliner level performance. Songs from their album, “Worth The Pain” blasted and sounded strong live. Lead singer, Alexa Kabazie gets your attention and keeps it. This is a band to watch out for. They rock especially live.
