“Every time you see Gene Evaro Jr. play, it feels like it might be the last because they have all the makings of a band skyrocketing to much bigger frontiers. If it's not enough to be a scorching guitarist and keyboardist, Evaro Jr. also has a voice drenched in honey. Throw in captivating charisma and you have the infectious spirit of a natural born entertainer. His band is tapped into a funky soul, R&B aphrodisia mixed with shimmering rock. Their original material speaks to the universal state of mind of the present. It is a show where you'll walk away tingling from head to toe.”

Hailing from Joshua Tree, California, Gene Evaro Jr’s sound is a mixture of soul, folk, electronic and funk.

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.

Desert Rhythm Project Bio:

Desert Rhythm Project is a Neo-Roots, Reggae, Funk, Soul band from California's Mojave Desert. Fronted by desert natives Michael Reyes and Bryanna Evaro who have created their own unique style comprised of soulful harmonies, effortless melodic guitar techniques, and smooth elemental bass rhythms. Michael Reyes' dynamic presence on lead vocal and guitar is reminiscent of the soulful and energetic James Brown combined with the appreciative ethereal consciousness of reggae legend Bob Marley. Bryanna Evaro's timeless velvety folk-roots presence on bass guitar and vocals lends herself as the crowning essential counterpart of this celebrated divine duo. Backed by the energetic and talented Scot Kissinger on trombone, this high energy Reggae, Funk band is a force to be reckoned with.
