Sol Development at Harlows in Sacramento, CA 12816

Uplifting words were spoken and sung this evening inside Harlows. Sol Development is like Northern CA todays, 90s Arrested Development. Live music is only to be expected by this group. Harmonies are a must and sometimes it seems like every person on stage is a songbird. MCing with the specific intent of giving you hope by the teacher Karega Bailey will have you walking out the club energized.

A special surprise set by this fusion jazz type group called Minoyanci ended up winning the non existent “set of the night” contest. They played two songs. Dude in the photo below is sick on the keys (Damani Rhodes) and if you get a chance to check them out, do so.

SOLution Benefit at Sol Collective in Sacramento, CA 121116

Sol Collective in Sacramento, CA had a show 121116 to raise funds to go towards the purchase of the building they currently reside. One of the artist performing that night, James Cavern put this night together.  A lot of folk came out and a lot of talent was displayed on stage. I got there while The Philharmonik was doing his thing with his keyboard bouncing all over the stand, rappin, singin, playing keys, and pushing play to start his songs because he produced and made the beats to every damn song he performed! He was on stage more than a few times with different artists and complimented each song he collaborated on. I’ve listened to a bit of his music over time and it varies in styles that are current, samples, stuff that sounds sampled but it’s not. He’s gonna have a busy 2017. dsc_8270

Dlrn at Sol Collective 121116. I think this is my first time seeing them with live drums. The third song I think, got my attention. The drummer was banging on the ride, and musically and sonically, the sound was complete. The sound guy was on point tonight by the way. It was a good night of inspiring musicians and poets and people working to keep Sol Collective operating in its current location and to soon take ownership of it.
