KINGS OF CROWNSVILLE:
"WAITING THERE FOR ME" DANCIN' AT THE BELVEDERE"
WHEN: Saturday, January 3, 2015, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
WHERE: Cabaret at Germano's, 300 South High Street , Baltimore, MD
Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville are a roots Rock band with a New Orleans flavor. The brainchild of New Orleans-raised guitarist/singer/songwriter Steve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Americana, Blues, and Jazz into the mix.
Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part harmonies to their musical gumbo. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan.
Finalists in the 2012 Baltimore Blues Society competition, the Kings perform regularly throughout the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.
The Kings of Crownsville features Johnson backed by Ed Justice on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals; Jim Tavener on trombone, percussion, and vocals; Mike McCormick on keyboards and vocals; David Vermette on bass and vocals; and Rob Creath behind the drums.

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One—born with emerald green skin—is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete, and completely satisfying, musical in a long time" (USA Today).

Sunatirene (from Baltimore)

Stephanie (LAK) Germaine (electronics)
Andrea Pensado (electronics)
Jenifer Gelineau (violin)
Stephanie (Lak) Germaine (electronics, MA) "Now in Massachusetts back from San Francisco, California. Live sets are centered around sound collage, field recordings, restless electronics, tapes, objects, voice and video. Collaborator, improvisational performer and multi-instramentalist who is an active multidisciplinary visual artist. As an artist, Stephanie is influenced by the natural world, a digital one and through video, paintings, sketchings and photos she captures, creates and designs interactions between the two."
Andrea Pensado (electronics, MA) works with sound as a performer and programer. She has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. She studied in Argentina and Poland where she graduated in Composition with honors. However, her music started to gradually move from composition to improvisation. Presently, Pensado plays solos or with other improvisers mainly across the United States. She has been featured in South America and Europe as well. Pensado performs in all sorts of varied venues from regular concert halls to art galleries, clubs, lofts, basements, record stores and "house-shows". www.andreapensado.com https://soundcloud.com/andrea-pensado
Jenifer Gelineau (violin, MA) From the little urban city of Holyoke in the hills of Western Mass. Bowed textures inspired by rancor, chutzpah, love and chickenheartedness. Generally performed on hybrid and steel strings over a spruce top or other less traditional “instruments” like my Carlo Rossi Sippy Cups.
Sydney Spann (electronics, vocals)
Sunatirene is the alter-ego of Sydney Spann. She is a hybrid breed of witch. She's from the sea, but also from southern swamps, from oceanic mangroves, from Scotch moors and marshlands, tropical tundra, from the brine lakes and subterranean rivers' banks. Her poison is brackish brew. Suna makes thunderstorms with her ukelin, cast spells with hums underwater and wind through grass. Music is a way for her to speak.
