Gene Evaro Jr
Gene Evaro Jr
Hailing from Joshua Tree, California, Gene Evaro Jr’s sound is a mixture of soul, folk, electronic and funk. Gene Evaro Jr has the power and dexterity of Earth, Wind & Fire, and the music has the soulful craftsmanship of Stevie Wonder. Evaro can sing, play and lead in a way that brings to mind Stephen Stills or Prince. Watching Gene Evaro Jr and his band feels like you are experiencing some grand force of nature spiritually, like making love in a hurricane or testifying to the heavens in a meteor shower

Gene Evaro Jr is currently touring in support of his third full length album “Like its 1965” released in April of 2018. Gene Evaro Jr’s formidable and dedicated following is rapidly expanding beyond So-Cal, fueled by national tours supporting Milky Chance, Elle King, and Blues Traveler and prominent festival appearances at High Sierra Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Wanderlust Festival, Lucidity Festival, Hangtown Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, and Guitarfish Festival. Gene Evaro Jr’s works have been featured on the network television show Deadliest Catch and Ian Somerhalder’s Time Framed Series.

From the folk magic of Paul Simon, to the crazy funk fashion of Sly & The Family Stone, to the R&B nature of Bill Withers, this old-soul artist 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.

Rainbow Girls
Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey, and Vanessa May -the dynamic trio known as Rainbow Girls- have already emerged as a much-loved live act both abroad and on their California home turf. They spent their first 5 years touring and busking around Europe and the US as a rock n' roll band, and in 2017 embarked on a stripped down *House Concert Tour Across America.

Rainbow Girls' discerning sensibility in regards to living in the United States is acutely reflected in their impassioned debut record as a trio, "American Dream". The recently released album highlights their rich harmonies, ageless songwriting, and soulful, bluesy sound at its rawest form. They have described their music as "a gang of sweet angels, punching you in the heart."

The ladies came together at an underground open mic in Santa Barbara, CA in December of 2010 and spent the following summer busking and couch surfing around Europe. Since then they have released three studio albums, toured the US and Europe extensively, been featured on KQED's The California Report, and shared the stage with The Brothers Comatose, ALO, John Craigie, Josiah Johnson (The Head and the Heart), and Handmade Moments.
