We are Alive in the Lights, a six member all girl rock band with members ages 17-20. The group was originally a three-member group formed as a small project at Richardson Prep Hi in San Bernardino. This group originally performed primarily acoustic rock and featured Madelyn Porras (age 18) as a vocalist, guitarist and pianist, Simmy Grewal (age 17) on bass and vocals, and Amanda Martinez (age 18) on keyboards and vocals. After an extensive search, Alive in the Lights really came together when joined by local rockers, drummer Elita Barus (age 20), lead guitarist, Alexandra Padilla (age 20) and later, singer Elizabeth Rivera (age 17). The group produces a sound influenced by Alternative Rock, with a hint of Paramore and The Neighbourhood.

Since their formation in 2013, Alive in the Lights has written and produced several original songs, and has played numerous high energy shows at venues such as Knott's Berry Farm, Disney’s California Adventure, the House of Blues, Hard Rock Cafe, The Rose, the Glass House, Chain Reaction, Raging Waters, and a number of large music festivals opening for national touring acts such as Berlin, Smash Mouth, Ambrosia, Drake Bell, and Spandau Ballet among others. In addition to these professional shows, Alive in the Lights plays at 15+ charity events per year supporting organizations empowering women, cancer awareness, foster care, and recovery causes. Their first EP, Contradictions, was released in October 2015 and their first professional music video “Tongue Tied” was released just months later. The girls have their sights set on even bigger shows this year and are currently working on their second EP and music video.

To entertain and innovate is our cause; we hope you join us at our next show!
