From 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., Sunday, October 1, Enter the Blue Sky (ETBS) will perform at the Adams Avenue Street Fair on the Roots Rock stage at 34th Street and Adams Avenue. Working steady and reaching for the brass ring, this is their first year at the festival and they’re sure to make an impact. With so much happening that weekend, you’ll definitely want to be onsite when ETBS takes the stage. They promise to deliver their atypical musical euphoria and aural ecstasy throughout the hour. Their thoughtful, upbeat, original lyric- and vocally-driven Americana music will leave you wanting more. Their debut album, Re-Entry, will be available for sale and signing, along with mugs, t-shirts, and cool band pins.

An award-winning vocalist, lead Sandé Lollis is a powerhouse of energy and melody. She is backed by three talented and passionate instrumentalists: Karen Childress-Evans on viola, brings achingly beautiful tones and a classic sensibility to the band; Alberto González on upright bass, has an innate sense of groove, with a solid beat and imaginative fills; and John Seever on harmonica, underlays dreamy chords and explosive leads adding depth to the band’s unique sound.

Together, Enter the Blue Sky combines decades of experience and individual talent to present a new and vibrant musical force to the local music scene.

Following in the footsteps of Cash, Gentry, and Nelson is Enter the Blue Sky, an ensemble that puts a new stamp on unadorned, simple, basic country. Their new disk of 13 songs, Re-Entry, is captivating, moving, and a real joy. I liked it from beginning to end,” stated Paul Hormick of “San Diego Troubadour.”

“They’re great, aren’t they! I finally got to hear them live last month and was impressed. Sandé and the band are not kidding around,” offered Claudia Russell of KSDS Jazz88.
