Alive In The Lights

Alive in the Lights, a six member all girl rock band, was originally a three-member group formed as a small project at Richardson Prep Hi in San Bernardino. After originally performing as an acoustic rock group, they found their sound combining Classic Rock into their original music. 

Since their formation, 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. They are proud to support community programs and love connecting with local groups through music.

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

ALEX "AJ DAY" PADILLA

 I'm AJ, the lead guitarist for Alive In The Lights. I was raised in San Bernardino and grew up around music since my dad was a musician. I started off on the piano at four, and throughout school I played alto sax in school bands. I finally picked up the guitar and began to feel absolute comfort when I would hold it, even if I was terrible at playing. Some time in my junior year of high school, I had taken it more seriously and began searching for a better electric guitar. While testing out a couple in a local music store, I was found and recruited by Alive In The Lights. I never would have thought one trip to a store could change my life.

 Hello, I’m Maddy! I’m from Redlands, CA. I am one of the lead singers and keyboardist of Alive in the Lights. I have been singing since I could talk and have been playing music since the 3rd grade. My first instrument was the violin, then I moved onto the guitar, and then to the piano. Aside from music I enjoy anything involving health and fitness as well as, corgi doggos. My ultimate dream is to be a professional vocalist and performer.

SIMMY GREWAL

 Hi, I’m Simmy! I have grown up in San Bernardino, California for all of my memorable life. My interest in music began in the third grade. I started with vocals and viola. After joining AITL in the seventh grade, I picked up the bass guitar and have been playing it ever since. Throughout the past 6 (ish) years, performing live and connecting with people in my community has been the best part of being in Alive In The Lights for me.  When I’m not doing music, I am very passionate about service, photography, blogging, and especially my education. I just graduated as Valedictorian from my high school and will be studying Global Business in college. I adore lending a helping hand to others, adventuring with those I love, and being as happy as I can possibly be.

ELITA BARUS

 I'm Elita! My friends call me Loy, or Hood. I'm from Redlands, CA. I've been playing instruments and making music for quite a while now. I wrote my first song in 7th grade. It wasn't very good.  My first instrument was flute, and I quickly realized I hate the flute. Shortly after I picked up Sax, then moved on to drums, then guitar, then piano. I loved music so much that I decided to major in it!  Along with music I fancy Photo/Video.  I own a business with my best friends and we do visual media for local businesses in the Inland Empire.
