Live at Lakeview continues on Thursday, Aug. 10, with a performance from Bay Area group The Sam Chase + The Untraditional, who are set to rock Lakeview Commons starting at 4:30 p.m.

“Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, California, Sam and his band whom he lovingly refers to as the Untraditional take to stages all over the country with a virulent and frenetic passion which many history buffs might liken to the Norse warriors known as The Berserkers, who were known to have fought their battles with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury,” states the band’s online biography.

So, what does the music sound like?

“The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful of cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox,” continues the bio.

If that doesn’t paint a picture, we’re not sure what does. Let’s just say the band self-categorizes its genre as “kick-ass folk.”

Chase began writing music at age 14 and released his first album (“Hella Solo”) in 2009. The record is a collection of songs he wrote and recorded in his room between the ages of 19 and 25. From there he joined forces with other musicians, eventually forming The Sam Chase + The Untraditional.

Band members have changed over time, but the current seven-member group is set to rock South Shore later this week.

Live at Lakeview is free to attend. Additional information is available at Learn more about the performers on Facebook (@thesamchasemusic) or at
