From the alleyways of old town Riverside come the sounds of vintage folk pop that broke free from the early 1930's and skipped through time to find it's way into our modern world. Along the way, stories were turned into songs, forming 'Eva and the Vagabond Tales'. From entertaining people on the streets, ferries, yachts and mountain tops, to playing for crowds at the House of Blues and Dreamworks studios, the Vagabonds have played anywhere one can imagine. Led by Eva Mikhailovna, the four piece group puts Western, Gypsy Folk, and Ragtime into a musical melting pot, creating an alluring sound that "transcends time and continents." Since the formation of the group in 2011, the band released a self-titled EP in 2012, a full length album entitled "Letters From the Moon," in the fall of 2013, and an EP in 2016, "La Douleur Exquise".
Though numerous friends and talented musicians have come through the years and added their personal touch to the music, the live band currently consists of four members: Eva Mikhailovna, Jasmine Capitulo, Al Arteaga, and Jacob Pflum. The band continues building it's sound from the foundations of old time music and melancholy story-telling, bending the laws of traditional songwriting and sound. "The main intriguing factor about The Vagabond Tales is the inexplicit chameleon effect of ageless mood,” writes Independent Feedback Blog.
MUSIC AT THE CENTER is a fundraiser for The DVAC and its programs. Doors open at 6:30 pm with the concert beginning at 7:00pm.
