Alpena’s own hard rock band, Katharsys Theory, has announced that they will be playing with rock band, Puddle of Mudd, at one of Michigan’s most famous venues ­– The Machine Shop in Flint, on Friday.

“I always perform like it’s a sold-out show, and this one is, so I can’t wait to interact with the crowd and feed off their vibes,” stated Mike Cohoon, lead guitarist of the band.

“Playing at the legendary Machine Shop has always been a dream of ours,” said Carlos Vivero, lead singer and guitar player of KT. “I am a firm believer that hard work always pays off. This is one of our biggest accomplishments to date. We have finally reached a goal ­– to share the stage with a national act that have been billboard chart toppers.”

Katharsys Theory is not new to the Alpena spotlight. They recently released their full-length album this past summer, “We Will Rise.” Hosting a show in July at the Aplex in Alpena, attending fans traveled from as far as Washington State, Florida and driving all night from Minnesota just to see them play live.

Landing a gig at The Machine Shop was the icing on the cake after a successful album release show in their hometown.

Kevin Sytek, bassist of KT, added, “this is a childhood dream achieved.”

Katharys Theory has been creating music and playing at various venues in Michigan since 2018. All of the band members have been playing music for over half their lives and the musical chemistry shows on stage.

Drummer KC Mason has has been playing drums since age 6.

“I’m excited to express my joy of music to a full venue,” Mason said.
