Biography

New York Based Live Society Is Burning Up The Stage!

Representing a modern day twist on the 70’s R&B sound, Live Society’s danceable grooves and rich harmony driven songs are sure to drive the crowd wild. Appealing to all ages, their infectious melodies embed themselves into your brain until one has no choice but to give in and sing along.

This truly is a family affair. Lead vocalist Brian Collazo and family members Jason Vargas & Kevin Collazo on backing vocals bring an R&B element to this eight piece entourage. Erik Perez on drums, John Kaiteris on guitar, Scott Harper on saxophone, Anthony Candullo on bass along with keyboardist Jeff Miller make the band complete.

New York winner of Bodog’s $1 Million Battle of the Band competition, these seasoned performers have entertained at venues and festivals such as New York's The Bitter End, Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay, Orlando's Hard Rock Café, and K104-K Fest.

As many reviews have noted “A Live Society show is a soulful, spirited affair that must be experienced firsthand to fully appreciate.”.. “Once you've been a part of it, you'll wonder how you lived so long without em'.”

Lyrics

Carry Me Back

Written By: John Kaiteris

Somebody find me some peace of mind and I'll be livin' it I'll be livin' it, forever Somebody put it in my pocket and tell me it's mine, I'm livin' itI'll be livin it, forever

Gone are the eyes that see only darkest places where every minute is a moment taken Gone is the wreckage I refuse to bring me down
Everybody's got a chance they will come around

A strong wind's gon' carry me back
carry me back, carry me back
A strong wind's gon' carry me back again carry me back again

Somebody find me some peace of mind and I'll be livin' it I'll be livin' it, forever Somebody put it in my pocket and tell me it's mine, I'm livin' it I'll be livin it, forever

Lying face down hugging 24th street gets a little bit boring
Draw a line in the sand, the Tri-boro bridge will understand it if you leave in the morning Sister holds her head up high & throws her hands up to the sky Teach her how to walk and then how to run takin' 2 steps back but one step trying

A strong wind's gon' carry me back
carry me back, carry me back A strong wind's gon' carry me back again carry me back again

Somebody find me some peace of mind and I'll be livin' it I'll be livin' it, forever Somebody put it in my pocket and tell me it's mine, I'm livin' it I'll be livin it, forever

Is it a place or a space or a feeling?
Won't you be a fortune teller for a moment telling peace be on my side
Hold your grace for a day and believe it Never let a moment pass by if the best parts of you are still stuck on the inside


Beautiful Way (About Your Bad Self)

Written By: J. Kaiteris

Crash landing, I'm in love and I like it
with the blinders completely on
The minute I saw you I was willing and asking
which dotted line do I sign upon
Like a kid who borrows time
to kick some brand new shoes and a pickup line
this is me
Got branded before I even got with you
Made your mark I was bound to fall
Nobody knows me baby the way that you do
You're my genuine know-it-all
You've become every part of me
and every cliche that could ever be
and that's alright, 'cause I'll tell you all night

You have a beautiful way about your bad self
When your eyes are hanging low ask me baby
and I will surely run for help
You have a beautiful way about your bad self

Unconsciously I was steppin' to your light
Heard your voice and you pulled me through
Broke down, busted on the ground lookin' to realize
I found the stunning and graceful you
Back to the kid who borrowed time
his pickup just became the finish line
and that's alright
'cause he'll tell you all night

You have a beautiful way about your bad self
When your eyes are hanging low ask me baby
and I will surely run for help
You have a beautiful way about your bad self
And it's your beautiful smile that keeps me alive
When I think about you I can't think about anybody...

Baby I'm on to you, you see
and it's all because I call you honey
Everyone agrees
It's the thought of you that keeps me running
I intend to be what you throw your arms around
I'll show you how to believe
