Evening Sky is back with a digital-only four-song EP. This time the band is joined by two acclaimed horn players, Carl “Geerz” Gerhard on trumpet and flugelhorn, and tenor sax player Ben Shaw. The horns bring the band into a jazzier, funkier, more rhythmic spectrum, and delves into an even greater variety of sounds than before.

Who is Evening Sky?

Evening Sky is a Jazz/Roots Quartet featuring Chris Brooks on Pedal Steel Guitar, Joe Potenza on Bass, Gino Rosati on Guitars, and Eric Hastings on Drums.  

The band has a knack for combining the classic elements of American music (jazz, folk, R&B, country) to form a unique, spirited sound.  Their rhythmic, smooth, and playful approach has been compared to artists as diverse as Bill Frisell, Bill Withers, Bill Monroe, and Bill Laswell.

Whether on their own original instrumentals, reinterpreting classic songs, or collaborating with guest singers and instrumentalists, Evening Sky has a chameleon-like ability to adapt to whatever the situation calls for.

The band can be seen performing at venues as varied as jazz and blues festivals, quiet listening rooms, and raucous rock clubs.  Evening Sky’s approach in the studio is equally as eclectic.  They have experimented with old school recording techniques, as evidenced on their One Mic, Two Weekends release.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, they have used the studio as a creative, experimental tool:  adding layers of sound, overdubs, effects and five different vocalists on their version of Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited.
