What the hell kind of church service is this?” the LA Weekly once asked of an Evangenitals live performance.
The Avant-Americana 9 piece sound more like they hail from a rural Appalachian psychedelic dream than Los Angeles, which can be credited to in part to Juli Crockett’s vocals and Zappa-esque sensibility. Unburdened by genres, the band was founded in 2003 by playwright/director Crockett and opera, jazz and gospel singer Lisa Dee, originally as a joke, but they were too damn good to not take seriously.
“The female harmonies between Juli Crockett and Lisa Dee are like the Andrews Sisters re-imagined as tragic mermaids,” said LA Record.
The Alt-Country band have recorded 4 albums, including Moby Dick: or, The Album (Fluff and Gravy 2014), which No Depression described as “manic, diverse, unusual and creative songwriting and delivery at its best.”
They’ve played all over the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lightning In A Bottle and The Melissa Etheridge Cruise.
Joining Crockett on guitar is her husband, Michael Feldman (Cousin Junebug), on keys, Joey Maramba (John Cale) on bass, Andrea Baker (The Moth Mainstage) on fiddle, Cody Farwell (Goodnight Cody) on guitar/lap steel, Danny Graziani (DoSomething) on viola, electric mandolin and harmonica, and Rob Shaffer (Ninja Academy) and Nick Stone (Pixarmonic Orchestra) on drums and percussion.
About Juli Crockett
I do a lot of stuff. What kind of stuff, you may wonder? (Or not, if you already know me...) Well, how about recording records with The Evangenitals, music videos, getting books published, directing plays, performing in plays, writing plays and running a writing lab with Padua Playwrights, singing with the legendary folk singer Jim Kweskin, recording the 100 Song Demo podcast in our backyard music studio (aka Sound43), and somehow managing to work a day job in the wild and crazy cannabis industry while raising an awesome child with my awesome husband.
Currently, I've just finished mounting a new theater piece, I'm working on a screenplay, doing a weekly Evangenitals podcast (100 Song Demo), and composing several new plays, still while working the aforementioned day job and raising the aforementioned child (with the awesome husband).
As a Patron of my Arts, you get a front row seat to all of it. The good, the bad, and the filthy.
I tried to make the "rewards" of patronage as interesting as possible, from love letter to stick figure drawings to candid phone memo recording of humiliating first ideas for songs. If there's other perks and privileges that would entice you to give --- let me know! We can shake this thing up as we go!
