The deeply-grooved funky blues, and soulful folk of Evaro Jr is attracting a dedicated following rapidly expanding beyond So-Cal, fueled by recent touring and appearances at The Joshua Tree Music Festival, AMFM Festival, and the 111 Music Festival. The band was honored with an invitation to play on the main stage at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, via the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, after returning from their 2014 Fall West Coast Tour, to Seattle, WA.

Frontman Gene Evaro Jr's works have also been featured on the network television show Deadliest Catch and Ian Somerhalder's Time Framed Series.

Gene Evaro Jr is currently promoting their album Soul (How I keep Movin' On) and are working on their next full length album, "Too Good To Believe" in-between touring.

Hailing from magical Joshua Tree, California, since 2008, a place in which many music groups from all over the world come, and have for years, in search of the quiet spirit that is the high desert, Gene Evaro Jr embody that spirit with pure inspiration and creativity, like that of some greats, some of whom we've lost and miss dearly.

From the folk magic of Paul Simon, to the crazy funk fashion of Sly & The Family Stone, to the lyrical poetry of Jim Morrison, this old-soul youthful group of artists reminds us of what it once felt like to put on a record, press play, and then relish in every word from start to finish, without missing one beat. Gene's songs speak for his generation through his prolific songwriting. Musically reminiscent of Allen Stone, Blake Mills and Xavier Rudd, Gene Jr. brings the avant-garde stylings of Albert King to mind including playing a mean upside-down guitar, music that not only moves listeners with a force that manifests in dancing feet, it is music that heals your entire being to the core.
