Fine and Mellow is comprised of vocalist Lilan Kane, and flugelhorn/trumpeter Daniel Herrera. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, they incorporate guitarists, pianists, and upright bassists to enrich the jazz and soul elements found in their diverse and timeless repertoire. With song selections spanning jazz standards, pop favorites, bossa nova, and classic R&B, the band reinvents each piece with artistry and finesse creating a sound that is comfortable and creative.
Since 2008 Santa Cruz based Pop/Rock/ Hybrid-Reggae band Thrive has been paving its path in the music world.
In October 2010 the relatively unknown band put out its album Gratitude Attitude and would shock the scene. The album would reach number four on the iTunes Reggae Charts and would start the motor for the machine that is called Thrive.
Thrive would build on its success with regional tours with front running reggae artists SOJA, Iration and Tribal Seeds, along with statewide headlining tours on their own and massive shows with other artists including Rebelution, JBoog, The Green and Katchafire.
With founders Aaron Borowitz (Lead vocals/guitar) and Kenny Rogers (lead vocals/drums) building the foundation for the band, they are now joined with seasoned saxophonist and vocalist Scott Schipper, bassist Andrew Forgy and most recently multi-instrumentalist talent Matt Masih on keyboards and vocals.
