ABOUT THE BAND

The band's founding members have been playing in Mazatlán, Mexico for several years and will be accompanied by a local vocalist. This versatile trio will play a variety of music including rock, pop, jazz, blues, soul and folk covering songs by artists such as Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Billy Joel, Bonnie Raitt, Jeff Beck and Jason Mraz. The band made its initial B.C. tour in July and this will be their second visit to the Lower Mainland.

ROB LAMONICA has been playing piano professionally for over 25 years, most recently seven nights a week during the winter months in Mazatlán, Mexico where he is known as “Mazatlan’s Musical Mayor”. He is highly regarded for his open stages and ability to bring different musicians from around the world together to his weekly shows. Each show is different with a variety of musical styles and influences including jazz, blues, rock, pop, country and Latino music. In 2002, Rob won the Country Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year and he has opened for a number of great players, including Merle Saunders, Jerry Garcia Band, Robin Trower, Jack Bruce, Melvin Seals, Galactic and Karl Densin. Rob is passionate about high-quality live music and has played throughout the U.S. and western Canada.

LOLA PARKS is a Langley-based singer-songwriter who has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band to co-founding and being sole lyricist for original folk rock group, Sonnenblume,she has staged her own show for over a decade. A multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician – Vocal Jazz" and “Female Songwriter of the Year”, her 2011 release (Here) garnered three Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations and continues to receive international and playlist attention. Her music is best described as boho chic soul folk carried by dangerous lyrics, hypnotic grooves and a seductive voice. Lola has performed on five continents, led several Western Canada tours and shared billing with numerous Grammy and Juno award winners/nominees.

IGNACIO (Nacho) CHAVEZ started his music education in Mexico City in 1999. In 2003 moved to Los Angeles to enroll at the LA College of Music, where he studied with Frank Gambale of the Chick Corea Electric Band. Being exposed to different styles of music over the years, Nacho has evolved as an amazing guitarist with an articulate touch. He can throw it back and forth with the best of them in any genre, with his playing reflecting a strong influence of jazz, rock, country and Brazilian music. Nacho spent three years in Las Cabos playing at Pueblo Bonito Resorts but now plays full time in Mazatlán.
