Gene Evaro Jr. & The Family
Fresh off a national tour with Blues Traveler, Gene Evaro Jr is gearing up for a busy summer with a West Coast tour in support of his latest album “Too Good To Believe” Gene Evaro Jr’s formidable and dedicated following is rapidly expanding beyond So-Cal, fueled by recent touring and appearances at High Sierra Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Wanderlust Festival, Lucidity Festival, Hangtown Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, and Guitarfish 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.
Gene Evaro Jr has toured the Country opening for Elle King, Galactic, Con Brio, and Blues Traveler. Gene Evaro Jr’s works have also been featured on the network television show Deadliest Catch and Ian Somerhalder’s Time Framed Series.
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 embodies that spirit with pure inspiration and creativity.
Gene Evaro Jr has the power and dexterity of Earth, Wind & Fire, 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. His songs have a natural showmanship built in to them, from charging, salsa-tinged breakdowns to fluttering horn drops, to big-city guitar solos. 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.
