News, Thoughts, Excerpts, Words, and Blurbs from the Band


We were just voted the best jazz act for 2024 in Southern New England by the readers of Motif Magazine! It's the 2nd year in a row and 3 of the last 4 years. It feels great to be recognized for our music and releases (9 albums & 6 singles since 2020)!


A comparatively new venue is Myrtle, in East Providence, RI.  Cool vibe, great sound.  What more can you ask for? We played our first show there in March 2024 and had a blast.  Our next appearance there is on Saturday May 4, 2024 at 2pm.


We've got two more releases in our Plus 1 series coming out this year. First up, a groovy album with chromatic harmonica player Ralph Rosen.  Followed by a Fall release with  saxophonist John McKenna - our jazziest release yet!  And be on the lookout for new singles dropping from the quartet!

Evening Sky @ the Guitar Show


Who is Evening Sky?

Evening Sky is a Jazz/Roots Quartet featuring Chris Brooks on Pedal Steel Guitar, Joe Potenza on Bass, composer Gino Rosati on Guitars, and producer 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. And that's just the Bills!

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.
