Band Bio

Who are the Evening Shades? Just your basic hometown Rogue Valley guys with a talent for writing, playing and performing high energy original music with a sound all their own. Combined, their influences span classic rock, British pop, hip hop, hard rock, metal and even classical. This is why the Evening Shades have a sound that is hard to describe in terms of any specific band yet is all their own. If you are lucky you may see the guys hanging out at their favorite watering holes around Medford after a long recording session or a tight practice in preparation for an upcoming show. Still, who are the Evening Shades?
