Próxima Parada ~ Groovy California Folk & Soul
Próxima Parada blends soulful and uplifting melody with hard-hitting rhythm into a sound distinctly their own. They continues to grow and evolve, drawing influence from contemporaries like Lake Street Dive and Vulfpeck, classic artists like Ray Charles and Bob Dylan, as well as jazz, gospel, and more. Their performances span from unadorned grooves in intimate settings to floor-stomping dance parties on the main stage. Listeners call their music "sexy as hell,” so when you see them live, either bring a loved one or keep your eyes open; Próxima Parada plays matchmaker.
