Darden

DARDEN is comprised of Clarah, the guitarist; Havi on mandolin, Tabbi, the bassist, and Josiah on drums.
The girls are vocalists in the group, focusing on harmonies and musical blends.

Raised on the California Coast in a family of musicians, the band grew up surrounded by musical influences from almost every genre. In the early 2000’s, their parents piled them into an RV, and together they embarked on several singing tours around the U.S., traveling as far east as Ohio. Originally their vocals were backed by their Grandpa Joe Tatar on honky-tonk style piano, but eventually, each decided on an instrument, and when the Darden family came off the road in 2008, the sisters began to hone in on forming their own musical entity. It was only natural that their brother Josiah join the group, and he now backs the girls on drums.

Gina & Sam Leslie

Gina and Sam Leslie are siblings originally from Colorado. Gina, based out of Venice, is joined by her brother for Radio Venice as a special out-of-town guest. Raised in a bluegrass family, their music is rooted in folk and bluegrass traditions, and blends with their love of jazz, creating a unique swing sound.

Gina’s raw and sultry voice sounds like it belongs in a 1920’s speakeasy, backed by Sam’s face-melting guitar solos and solid rhythm playing is a unique combination of chemistry and sounds. They play anything from Willie Nelson to George Gershwin, giving their own twist to classic songs.
