Darden Sisters

The Darden Sisters are comprised of Selah, on the violin; Clarah, the guitarist; Havi on mandolin; and Tabbi, the bassist. All four of them are vocalists in the group, focusing on harmonies and musical blends.

Raised on the California Coast in a family of musicians, they grew up surrounded by musical influences from almost every genre. In the early 2000’s, their parents piled us into an RV, and together they embarked on several singing tours around the US, traveling as far east as Ohio. Originally their vocals were backed by their Grandpa Joe Tatar on honky-tonk style piano, but eventually, each of them decided on an instrument, and when their family came off the road in 2008, the four of them began to hone in on forming their own musical entity.

They are all songwriters in the group, now playing several instruments each. Since coming off the road, they have developed a sound which has been dubbed “Alternative Americana”.

Residing in Orange County, California, they’ve grown up performing locally in venues such as Placentia’s Concerts in the Park, The Anaheim Packing District, the Muckenthaler Cultural Arts Center, Monster Jam at Angel’s Stadium, and for the Navy Reserves and Veterans on the Queen Mary and USS Iowa Battleship. (Fun fact: they love performing for our Veterans- they’re their favorite! <3 )

In 2014, the Darden Sisters were featured performing originals on Puro 43 Music Sessions; a television show that was shot and aired in The Netherlands. Later, they got to surprise Paula Abdul for her birthday during the taping of Studio 10, an Australian TV program.

They enjoy performing an extensive variety of music including Americana, Western Swing, Jazz, Pop, Country, Gospel, Blues, Patriotic, and anything else they feel inspired to tackle.

Music has always been their first love, and their goal is to share that love with as many people as possible!

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.
