RUBY BLUE + support
August 23 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
For the first time at Open Studio!
Ruby Blue is an a original band that pays homage to the super sounds of 1975 to 1985.
Tipping their hats to such artist’s as Micheal Franks, Chaka Khan, Toto and The Police. Ruby Blue continues to blur the lines between Latin, Jazz and Funk.
Keeping true to that particular era, they have also written love songs that throw back to The Commodores & Stevie Wonder who weren’t afraid to say those 3 words “I Love You”.
Lead singer/songwriter Darius Mendoza along with Kade Brown on keys, Toby Bender on drums/percussion, Angus Radley on Bass and Stephen Byth on sax have created memorable tracks that hook n’ pop.
Rising to Bowie’s challenge of being untainted by genre, these boys can go from an Argentinean tango, to funk, finish with a jazzy tune and not feel the need to apologies.
Ruby Blue takes the listener on a colourful journey that has much diversity yet finds direction and thematics through an era rather than a strict sonic style.
