L.A. Project Band
April 21 @ 9:00 pm - 12:30 am
L.A. PROJECT was created because of a vision to play R&B Soul songs that were not being played by most of the other bands playing that genre of music. It was the vision of two musicians, who had played with other bands for many years, that wanted to deliver their own special kind of “magic”!
They are a group of Bay Area music pioneers that are seeking to transport you in to another time and place with the selection of music played their own way. By carefully choosing songs that grab your attention and make you want to move, they want to give their audiences a solid unforgettable experience!
Lead male vocalist, Larry Olden, has a contagious energy and a dynamic voice that can be compared to James Brown and does not disappoint! Delia Padilla, our female lead vocalist reminds you that music is timeless, with her powerful and soulful renditions of hits made famous by artists like Minnie Ripperton, Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys and Jill Scott. Rosie Dominguez, has a long resume as a lead AND background vocalist, and delivers rich and strong harmonies. The Drummer and leader of the band, Art Padilla, keeps the band in time, with his precision and ability to bring any song to life! Their keyboard player, Cliff Gamble, originally from Philly, PA, never ceases to amaze and deliver his silky smooth and equally funky accompaniment to every song and also adds harmonies to the vocals. Victor Montes is the group’s guitarist and offers vocals, all while making his guitar sing. Keni Williams, their bass player has the ability to deliver an “in the pocket” funky experience that will make you feel the vibration throughout your body. Tam Saguyan, master percussionist will have you feeling the rhythm with his funky latin style on timbales and congas.
The band is currently playing Bay Area Nightclubs, festivals, private events, and recently opened up for Juan Escovedo of the E Family Band. Their collective goal is to continue to be in demand and dig up those songs that make you reminisce and get you movin’ and groovin’!
