Open Mic Night Featuring Darren's Band

"Wires, Wood & Harmonies"They write and play acoustic music using guitars, a cajon (box drum) and voices. It's a little bit country, and little bit funk. Whatever it is, they try to keep it simple and groovy. Darren's Band evolved from years of musical collaboration between Darren and Jonas (Stand-up Bass). After playing with Ken (Cajon, etc...) at many parties, they convinced him to bring his cajon and harmonies on board permanently. They then coerced Julia into joining by learning all the songs she'd written and vowing to play them at every gig whether she showed up or not. For the last year, They've been playing and writing together and are excited to have just released their first record, "Live at the Woodshed."
