SF Debut Show
Evan Lanam & The Live Oaks
Evan Lanam & the Live Oaks is a rock & roll music collective consisting of over 12 members. Throughout the last 7-8 years, Evan has been writing, recording and playing locally in a few different San Francisco Bay Area music scenes in various kinds of bands, as primarily a drummer/vocalist. So, as the saying goes, "drummers write", this rings particularly true with Evan. After a few un-released demos, and a lot of shows (75+), Evan found his voice as a songwriter and a band leader. He is now a regular at venues like Brick & Mortar, Amnesia, and the Chapel in SF, and has played even larger venues like Great American Music Hall and Slims.
We strive to turn back time - to a time where waves of people would gather in front of the nearest radio to get down. So sit back, relax & vibe with the elements that make us NU!

Mix the spirited soulfulness of Musiq with the laid-back island vibes of Jack Johnson, and the lyrical rap precision of J. Cole, then add a dash of indie rock from the likes of Cold War Kids and the Black Keys and you have something of the pallet from which The Brothers Prince create their sound.
Love and the Zealous
Richard Love and Marcus Leemann -- two misfits in a small Texan town, one full of emotion, the other excitement, formed a friendship over a similar ear for melody. Love & The Zealous plays a hybrid of southern flavored soul music with elements of classic rock and pop. Their music with elements of classic rock and pop. Their musical roots evolved from the artists their parents enjoyed: Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, The Allman Brothers, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, to name a few, The Grateful Web describes the Love & The Zealous experience thusly: "the un-matched raspy/soulful voice of Richard Love completes the ambiance of the group and leaves the band's sound coursing through your veins long after experiencing it."
California based Brother Grand blends Psychedelic-Folk Rock with a twist of Film-score Soul. With an emphasis on engaging live performances, Brother Grand pushes the limits without breaking the ties. Not just a mere duo, Brother Grand expounds their message through the use of live looping, a rhodes piano, chaotic string textures, thunderous drumming, and heartfelt vocal harmonies. Whether stripped down to acoustic guitar & upright bass, or surfing an electric wall of sound, Brother Grand always delivers with passion, honesty, and presence.
