Oversoul

Leave a comment

Kumar’s Artist  ‘Oversoul ‘ is a fresh young band making their way in the lively city of San Diego. The band began playing together in early 2010, and has already put out a fantastic demo (if interested in here, please contact the blogger,  CD $7) and played live.  

 

Guitarist Mat Bishop, Drummer Adam Reis, Vocalist Alexa Villa, and Bassist Bryan Swoboda

 

The band is estatic, after getting a great start. Vocalist Alexa Villa, guitarist Mat Bishop, bassist Bryan Swoboda, and drummer Adam Reis,  are “planning to motivate and inspire all living things-the Oversoul. “
 
We went to a live performance of theirs this weekend down at “Dream Street” in Ocean Beach, San Diego. The band started the “Rock night” with their sound that can be compared to Paramore and Flyleaf.  They combined their original songs with a few covers songs, like Pat Benetar.
 
We enjoyed the performance at Dream street and you could tell the band was enjoying themselves. The band was supported by friends and family members.
 
Oversoul hopes to continue gaining a reputation in the music industry, with their unique sound, passion and confidence. They have quite high aspirations at a young age to create a career out of the niche and love they have for music.
 
Stay tuned for further performances from the up and coming OVERSOUL\

Sierra Leone & Cosmic View Rock the House

Leave a comment

Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars world music style and Cosmic View‘s neo-jazz rocked the Coach House on Wednesday night, August 11th.

——————————————————-

Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars’  style is a meaningful catchy exciting world music beat. Their band originates from Sierra Leone and plays music world wide, proud that they have escaped the harsh war zone of Sierra Leone. They formed this band in the Refugee camps to keep spirits up and alive.

Cosmic View’s style is a neo-pop Jazz and R & B, with roots from Earth, Wind, and Fire, Alice Coltrane and McCoy Tyner. Sierra Leone and Cosmic View together rocked their styles to a  healthy crowd at San Juan Capistrano’s exciting “Coach House.”

Refugee All Stars started their appearance with a drumline through the crowd. Beating the conga drums, chanting and dancing. The 8 members made their way to the stage to set up and begin to play their music. The members of the band awed the crowd because they not only jammed out their own instrument to make some great sounding music, but they rotated around the stage to different instruments and continued to play on various instuments. Instruments they played included handheld drums, bass guitar, trumpet.

With such stage performance, Refugee All Stars & Cosmic View certainly gave the crowd their money’s worth; so much that they couldn’t resist the ‘ENCORE!!’

CEO of Kumar, Devin S. Parker, was at the performance.

Ernest Straughter & Michael McDonald reconnect

Kumar Managament ‘s ‘ Cosmic View ‘ opened for Michael McDonald On Aug 3rd at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano.

 

Ray & Ernest Straughter (Cosmic View/Kumar Mgmt) with Michael McDonald on Aug 3rd 2010

 

On Tuesday night, August 3rd, something happened at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano that seems to happen very often in the music business. Many would think that the music business is so large that how could somebody keep track of it all, let alone remember people, places, and all those songs out there. But when Michael McDonald showed up to perform his concert to a sold out crowd of 500 people at the cozy and seasoned Coach House, he ran into his opening band, Kumar’s Cosmic View. And with a light of recognition, remembered Ernest Straughter (Cosmic View) from when he was the pianist in Michael McDonald & Patti LaBelle’s hit song from 1986 “On My Own”   < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsH63qJlIMM >

Ernest Straughter was the pianist in “On My Own”, and Michael remembered the pianist that he had never met but admired his talent. He also remembered Ernest from an episode of the ‘Tonight show’ with Johnny Carson, where again he recognized his phenomenal talent. Michael hadn’t realized that Ernest and Ray were his openers for this event, but in the small world of the music business, he got a pleasant surprise!

When we asked Kumar Management what they thought of the small world coincidence, they commented : “Music circles are much smaller than you think. Good artists are known, and great artists are sought after.”- Kumar Management

The night’s performance passed smoothly and the packed Coach House grooved to the Neo-jazz of Cosmic View, then enjoyed the classic songs of Michael McDonald.

Kumar Management’s CEO, Devin S. Parker got to hang out behind the scenes and  live the life of a legend for a day. From the sound check, lunch at noon, to tapping out the spots on the stage and mentally preparing for the evening concert. Kumar management is proud of the personal relationship it has with their artists, as well as the involved commitment and interest they are willing to put in.

“We were in a sought after venue and it was a true blessing.” –Kumar Management
