Sam Ravenna, Trevor Garrod Trio at Doc's Lab On his upcoming debut self titled album, Sam Ravenna establishes himself as a chef in a soul kitchen. Blending ingredients of electro funk, hip-hop and classic and modern soul, Ravenna pulls together an all star band consisting of players from some of the best touring acts in the country. Members of Turkuaz, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Pretty Lights live band and more lend their hand to Sam Ravenna's songs, complimenting his intricate arrangements and uncompromising electric sound. The Berklee College of Music graduate has spent the bigger part of the last decade as a side man for many artists including Cas Haley, Tubby love, and Peter Joseph Burtt & The Kingtide. He is a seasoned touring musician, and has produced a handful of records for artist around Lake Tahoe and national touring acts. His own projects, the funk powerhouse "Rapplesauce" and the reggae-dub project "Samily Man" have received critical acclaim. All of these accomplishments culminate in Sam Ravenna's high energy and intimate musical experience he'll be taking on the road this year to support his new record. Trevor Garrod is the lead singer and keyboardist of Tea Leaf Green. This trio, consisting of Scott Rager on drums, and Eric DiBerardino on bass (both from TLG), explores the more intimate side of Trevor's deep and soulful catalog. Both the melancholic, and uplifting sides of Trevor's songwriting are backed by a honky tonk meets rock and folk rhythm section, focusing on Trevor's unique vocal prowess.
