We couldn't make it to Lucidity this year, so we're throwing a party at SoHo the following weekend!  Our friends, Royal Jelly Jive, we'll be kicking off the evening with some swinging gypsy/jazz/hip-hop/funk.  COME GET DOWN, SANTA BARBARA!

Rainbow Girls
Rainbow Girls
Rainbow Girls is a collaborative of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, and California natives whose wide spectrum of genres is hard to classify, but something along the lines of funky, bluesy, soulful, psychedelic pop with roots in folk and rock n' roll. With soaring harmonies and a slew of instruments they share and swap throughout their set, the ladies of Rainbow Girls pump out original after original of your favorite new songs, whether it be acoustic or electric.

The ladies came together at an underground open mic in Isla Vista, CA in December of 2010 and spent the following summer busking and couch surfing around Europe. Since then they have released two studio albums, toured the US and Europe extensively, and simultaneously developed two different forms of performing: 1) an acoustic back porch set based around their rich harmonies and folkier roots; and 2) an electric, rock n' roll, foot stomping spectacular enticing people to get naked, let loose, and dance wildly. This show at SoHo will be the latter.
Royal Jelly Jive
Few bands have the ability to evoke an old-school throwback vibe and yet sound entirely fresh and new at the same time. Royal Jelly is one of those bands. Combining elements of Soul, Rock, Swing and Hip-Hop, Royal Jelly shakes up any dance-party and grooves harder than your typical rock n' roll band dares to go. Fronted by the enigmatic singer Lauren Bjelde, who brings a one-of-a-kind sultry voice to her magnetic stage presence, Royal Jelly leans on the sounds of swingin' horns, gritty keys and a bumpin' rhythm section to carry a crowd into bliss... creating an unforgettable live experience that will leave you wanting more.

Since forming in San Francisco's own Boom Boom Room in the summer of 2013, Royal Jelly has quickly ascended to become one of the Bay Area's most anticipated acts. After releasing their debut album to a packed house at Slims in late 2014, they hit the road and and have been touring non-stop ever since. Playing hi-energy shows and festivals in cities and towns all across the West Coast, they have captivated the ears and hearts of almost all who hear them, intoxicating the masses with their unique and infectious music. They have been lucky enough to share stages with notable acts such as Michael Franti, Rebrirth Brass Band, The California Honeydrops as well as performing at this past year's Outsidelands Music Festival, Soul'd Out Music Festival, Rivertown Revival, and Redwood Mountain Faire. They've just completed their new album "Dear Mr. Waits" and will bring it on the road for a national tour this spring, Royal Jelly is off to making 2016 their biggest and best year yet.
