TRUE LOVES
Listening to the abundant sounds of the Seattle-based funk & soul group, True Loves, is like walking down a favorite neighborhood street, slapping five with friends, checking up with clerks in their stores, admiring your dark sun-glassed face in their windows, ducking under flowerpots and smelling the familiar smells of your most cherished locale. The band is its own block party. What began in 2014 as a jam session between three of the city’s best - pocket-perfect drummer David McGraw, intoxicating bassist Bryant Moore, and otherworldly guitarist Jimmy James - has since blossomed into a global force that now features percussionist Iván Galvez and four horn players: trombonists Jason Cressey and Greg Kramer, and saxophonists Gordon Brown and Skerik. Together, the group’s live performances have garnered them much acclaim and millions of streams on YouTube. In 2017, True Loves recorded their debut instrumental LP, Famous Last Words, which received worldwide adoration and earned them spots at coveted festivals. In 2021, the group released their sophomore album, Sunday Afternoon

ANDRE CRUZ & CHRIS LUJAN
Andre Cruz and Chris Lujan bring a unique flavor with their fuzz heavy, groove-infused California soul. They will make you melt with crooning, sweet soul and light up the dance floor with explosive funkiness. The band is the product of the collaboration between vocalist/songwriter Andre Cruz (The Humidors) and producer/bandleader Chris Lujan (The M-Tet).
