Boris Garcia –

In the past six years since inception, BORIS GARCIA has set about trouncing genre “lines in the sand” and has fused Pop, Bluegrass and Jam into their own undeniable sound. BORIS GARCIA was born when friends recorded for fun only to find an audience beyond their wildest dreams. “We put together a band of the best local musicians for a one-off gig,” “It worked so well we did it again, and again, and again.” BORIS GARCIA quickly evolved into one of the most unique Americana / Jam bands in the land. They masterfully blend acoustic and electric instrumentation with American roots sensibility and melody that envelopes like a warm robe.

Their brand new CD “Today We Sail” was produced by Railroad Earth fiddler Tim Carbone and is their fourth national release. Eleven new tunes showcase Boris Garcia’s ability to tell a story and forge a lasting melody. Love and compassion, tales of higher order and sometimes personal disorder, songs that speak to the human condition. The opening track “Walking Barefoot” speaks of faith, faith in one’s self and of drawing lines in life’s “sand”. “Deaf, Dumb and Blind” beckons wonderful, heartfelt new love and haunting calling while “Mighty High” speaks not of getting high, but of being high, really high on life’s beauty and wonder.

Boris Garcia has seen significant commercial airplay charting AAA and Americana pacing them “outside” most of the Jamband crowd,” real song’s that resonate” despite any monikers or genre classification. Boris Garcia’s “Once More Into The Bliss” factored in the Jambands.com charts and placed top 10 for over 8 months peaking at #6 overall. “Today We Sail” has already begun to climb the Jambands.com charts, debuting at #11.

Octopus at The Sun Music Hall, Floyd, VA 9/23

Octopus Band – Live Music at the Sun Music Hall this Friday September 23rd and again at the next day noon Saturday.

Biography: When first drawing from the inspirational well in 2005, members of Norfolk, VA’s rock/jam band staple “Octopus” knew they were bringing something sweet to their lips. Their obvious range of influences from the Allman Brothers to Zappa aside, Octopus’ unique blend of rock and roll survived a changing lineup that helped hone and solidify the quartet’s sound. What remains are guitarist Kyle Hills’ hard-rocking leads laying over the wailing tones of Alfred Evans’ vintage Hammond B3 organ, their grooves are held down by the brothers (by blood and rhythm) Bruce Henning on bass and with Chris Henning delivering jazzy performances on the drum kit. Always an ever-energetic ride, Octopus has been packing local venues for half a decade, some with marathon performances of their poignant songwriting and improvisation, always brought in a genuinely fun and exciting atmosphere. This isn’t your garden-variety Octopus!

Members: Kyle Hills:Guitar,Vocals – Bruce Henning: Bass,Vocals – Chris Henning: Drums – Alfred Evans:Keyboards, Vocals
Hometown: Norfolk
