Rainbow Girls
Rainbow Girls
Rainbow Girls formed in the bottom of a radioactive crater. The first two colors to explode grinning from the mud were Red & Yellow, who soon realized that in order to fulfill their destiny, they needed to find the rest of the colors and join together to create an Electric All-Lady Stomp-Folk Grand Band. Green was discovered practicing voodoo in a barn in Carpinteria, while Violet was drawn in by the harmonious, soul lifting shrieks of a particularly festive Monday night ritual known as BEAN NIGHT. The four immediately took off on a gust of wind to Joshua Tree and Big Bear Mountain, and traveled through Europe by the skin of their teeth, couchsurfing, playing music on the streets, staying in art squats and getting deported from the UK. When they returned, bursting with rock but lacking a drummer, Blue, carrying an entire drum kit around her body like a huge metal cloak, trampolined forth from inside a stand at the Farmers Market and Rainbow Girls was formed.

Since then they have toured the western half of the US extensively, playing festivals and opening for bands like ALO, Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers, Brothers Comatose, and the California Honeydrops. In May 2013, they released their first official studio album, "The Sound of Light," featuring 16 original tracks and funded by almost 200 friends, fans, and family members. That summer the gals returned to Europe and the UK, but this time with a van, a tour manager, an album, and a legitimate list of gigs and festivals lined up. After returning to the US in September, the girls decided to take the winter to make money, work on new material, and gear up to tour both the US and Europe again in the Spring and Summer of 2014.
GrooveSession
GrooveSession
GrooveSession is a power rock trio with definitive song writing and a very live performance. A reputation as the barefoot band that enjoys long sets and sharing positively contagious energy. Body, mind, and sound “GrooveSession” brings a multi-genre blend of rock n’ roll that they call “movin' groovin' music.” A very hard working and easy going band with their own sound and a quest to end the jammin' famine.

This trio made up of Sarven Manguiat on guitar/keyboards and brothers Sanchez, Ronnie on bass & Manny holding down drums and front man duties. From high energy in your face electric tunes to an acoustic gem with three part harmonies, their songs are magical, professional, and musical all with an ability to make fire with music!

Over 850 performances including opening for/playing with many of today's greatest bands and musicians. From a night with Leo Nocentelli or Robert Walter in California to performing with Pat MacDonald, Wally Ingram, and Chris Aaron in Wisconsin, Tony Brown and Kim Manning in Iowa, or Walter Salas-Humara at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, these guys love it all!
They have opened for The Funky Meters, George Clinton’s P-Funk, Little Feat, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, 7 Walkers, Greg Adams, Tea Leaf Green, The Radiators, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, New Mastersounds, Railroad Earth, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Ozomatli and many more...
