Paracosmic

Paracosmic is a collaborative project of musicians from various parts of California and the United States. The band’s sound can be described as a funk-based improv flow, incorporating rock and blues with a keen taste for the psychedelic soundscape.

Forming through the deep seeded dreams of 4 individuals, Paracosmic began in 2015 in Los Angeles through mutual friends in the southern California music scene and festival circuits. Since then, the band has grown to a 6 piece and along with playing several staple venues in Los Angeles, are making their way onto Festival line-ups with their favorite artists.

So what does the name mean? Paracosmic is the adjective of the word Paracosm, which is a detailed, imaginary world. Within that concept the 6 musicians aim to take you on a very lucid yet imaginary funk voyage through your mind and reality simultaneously for a rockin good time!

Keep your ears peeled for PARACOSMIC.

The Mike Livingston Band

The Mike Livingston Band’s All-American musical throwdown is a wild amalgam of country, soul and rock & roll, all emphatically put across with Livingston’s frantic 88 keys and authoritative vocals and the coolly propulsive rhythm section of drummer Adam Steinberg and bassist Ben Getting.

It’s a highly unlikely and deliciously volatile combination—down and dirty street-smart and sleek, after-hours stylish, it’s equal parts Deep Southern blue yodel and classic 70s Hollywood punk strut, a recipe for disaster that nonetheless functions perfectly, thanks to the lurid pedigree of the players.
