Details

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.
