When Andrea Simler DeGolier and her husband relocated to Cincinnati from Buffalo, N.Y., in 1996, she left behind the successful regional band Kama Sutra and a burgeoning scene. After several projects that didn’t quite gel, DeGolier decided in late 2007 to take one last stab at putting together a Cincinnati band.

“It took a long time to find people who wanted to play something different, a little heavier and more eclectic,” DeGolier says over beers and snacks at her Madeira home. “I put an ad in the paper. It was like, ‘C’mon, we’ve got to find people that want to do the same thing.’ ”

DeGolier’s classified ad drew drummer Steve Klosinski, and quickly the pieces fell into place. Klosinski invited guitarist Bill Menke, DeGolier brought in cellist/keyboardist/vocalist Patrice Schlick, a cellist since fourth grade who had discussed forming a band with DeGolier but was simply too busy.

Chakras performs Saturday at Charlie's Throttle Stop in Fairfield. Go here to read Brian Baker's full feature.
