“With a powerful voice and soul in spades, Debora Galan is a true talent.” -- San Diego Troubadour "Debora Galan brings passion, style, charm and equally energetic and delicate tones to this seamless work of art. -- Jazz Quarterly Spanish-born vocalist and song-writer Debora Galan has performed on both coasts of the United States as well as in Canada, Mexico, and Spain, covering a variety of genres including Latin, jazz, R & B and contemporary Christian music. Currently residing in San Diego, she performs frequently on the West Coast as a guest vocalist and with her own ensemble, Silk. The group features some of Southern California’s leading musicians. Before moving to San Diego, she began her professional career in Washington, D.C. in Latin jazz and salsa clubs, performing with top-ranked bands and opening for major artists. Galan’s first album as a leader, All About Love (2016) features ten original compositions exploring the various aspects of love, from enchantment to heartbreak. Lyrics on two tracks are sung in Spanish. Produced by Emmy-winning Latin/world music producer Allan Phillips, the CD enjoyed frequent spins on West Coast radio and was scheduled for East Coast and European distribution in 2017. Reacting to the new CD, David Barron of KSDS said, “Love it! Will be playing it often,” while Jay Michaels of Magic 92.5 lauded her “beautiful angelic voice.” Ron Hamilton of WRJR calls her music “a marriage of jazz and pop, but so much more.” Galan has also recorded on Vassilis Sotiriou’s album, Live Your Life (2017), Gregg Manning’s Dance with You (2014), Jon Ciccareli’s The Journey (2008), and Steven Ybarra’s Love, Love, Love (2007) and many more.

You want some proper wicked multi-instrumental badass dance floor filling jazz step electro-soul hiphop-tronic biznizz all out of one Welshman, his sax/guitar/flute/synth and a loop station than you are in the right place, people. A graduate of Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts then touring Europe and Japan, and now a permanent resident of Southern California, Jonny specializes in ultra hip versions of classic soul and contemporary chart smashers with some slickly crafted covers for the studio heads. Maximum sizzle. For serious. (Jonny is a totally self contained artist and can provide his own PA system and sound equipment.) Get ON it.

Blues, Soul
Thursday, February 2nd @ 5:00pm

Christian's voice is fueled with passion and soul. With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, Christian Taylor is great for any private party, business event, wedding, restaurant or bar. Catch him as part of his duo, trio, or full band, and guests are sure to be drawn in immediately, and be thoroughly entertained with every song. Christian currently performs at some of San Diego's best live music spots, including Whiskey Girl, Old City Hall (used to be Florent), Herringbone, Searsucker, Loews Coronado Bay Resort, and many others. Playing some of his favorite covers from past decades to present, every song sounds as if though it were his own, putting as much passion and heart into singing them as if he had written them himself. Christian has performed at major charity fundraisers, local festivals, as well as SXSW in Austin, TX. Bio below. San Diego, CA native musician, and singer songwriter, Christian Taylor grew up surrounded by, and listening to all styles of music. Grandson of "Wipeout" drum legend, Mel Taylor, of surf rock band The Ventures, as well as grandson to the First Lady of Rock N Roll, Mary Kaye, who was the pioneer of the Las Vegas lounge act, you could say music is in his blood. Christian's father Jay Kaye was an accomplished musician, singer, songwriter, and blues guitarist in his own right, finding his audience accross Europe, where Christian found himself as a young child watching a listening to him play. ​ Christian didn't find his voice or musical style until later in life, after playing in all different styles of bands and projects as a young man. Christian experimented with folk, americana, and blues rock for a while, before he found a way to blend it all together with his love for classic soul music. His lyrics are stories filled with love, heartache, and hope. With simple guitar playing, he relies more on his soulful raspy voice, that he pushes as far as he can. The music is a throw back to 50’s 60’s soul and rock n roll, as well as blues and folk, packed with organs, saxophones, and a female back up singer that compliments Christian's vocals. Their live shows are full of energy, good vibes, and charisma, that continually keep the audiences dancing and entertained.

Native to Southern California, Kai has been singing and performing since the age of 6, then playing guitar and singing with his brother since he was 12 years old. The youngest son of a Hawaiian music entertainer Father, and a choir director Mother, Kai was destined to play and compose music from an early age. Fast forward to 2009 when Kai was one of 36 Semi-Finalists on Season 8 of American Idol. Also, Kai was featured on NBC's "The Winner Is", in Summer 201 3 with his brother, where they won $50,000 in a singing competition gameshow, giving Kai yet another boost of exposure and confidence. Kai performs solo with the help of a "loop pedal" which plays back anything recorded live to "make a band" on the spot.

Hello, and thanks so much for viewing my page! My name is Jason Graham, and I specialize in playing fun covers in a wide variety of genres, whether it be top 40, classic rock, folk or country. I have a wide variety in my set list, and can cater my shows too many different ages and styles. I have been lucky enough to travel the world playing music on cruise ships for the past few years, and am excited to make San Diego my new home. I utilize live looping to build up layers in my songs, and bring a one man band energy to all of my shows, but I can also strip it down and have a more traditional acoustic vibe if that is what the show calls for. I really appreciate the consideration, and can guarantee to bring professionalism and a fun time! Thank you!
