Andre Cruz & Chris Lujan, backed by The Black Diamond Rhythm Band, bring a unique flavor with their fuzz heavy, groove-infused California soul. They will make you melt with crooning, sweet soul and light up the dance floor with explosive funkiness. The band is the product of the collaboration between vocalist/songwriter Andre Cruz (The Humidors) and producer/bandleader Chris Lujan (The M-Tet).
Cruz – an energetic, joyful performer with Donny Hathaway meets Stevie Wonder vocal stylings and Lujan – a fixture in the Bay Area soul/funk scene are backed by the Black Diamond Rhythm Band, which features members of some of the Bay Area’s best soul and funk bands (including The Humidors, The M-Tet, Secret Sidewalk, Gene Washington & The Sweet Sounds).
Be on the lookout for their upcoming LP, The Real Thing coming out this summer, and their EP, Colors due by the end of the year. Catch Andre & Chris as part of the Hello Stranger Showcase on the Plaza Stage on May 21.
