The Grammy-nominated Common Kings will play Agave Saturday. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 day-of. They can be purchased at http://www.agaveavon.com. Doors will open at 9:30 p.m.

Common Kings' style and music is a collection of inspirations orchestrated into an array of head rocking beats, feel good vibes and emotional fever. The group's crazy, fun-loving attitude compliments its live sound, producing phenomenal pop hits with rock, reggae and rhythm and blues influences. These influences originate from each band members love for various genres, and widespread knowledge of music.

The majority of the members of Common Kings were born in the South Pacific, and raised in Orange County, California. Growing up with households full of colorful personality and vibrant passions for music, Common Kings' members naturally grew up forming individual musical paths. This musical journey involved mimicking and listening to artists such as Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, George Benson, Jim Croce, Michael Jackson, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Gypsy Kings, Earth Wind and Fire, Bob Marley and more. The culmination of these musicians explains exactly who the Common Kings are.

Where everything comes to a point is through lead singer Sasualei "Junyer King" Maliga. Maliga is perhaps one of the most impressive vocalists amongst today's leading artists. Born with an untrained raw-talent, Maliga's singing ability seems boundless, as he amazes listeners with a wide range of belting notes and soulful passion. His humble demeanor off-stage needs no introduction as to when the band is rocking out on-stage creating a young, wild and free atmosphere.
