Próxima Parada

“Straight from the soul: Próxima Parada makes you wanna dance.” -Allison Montroy, Mustang Daily, San Luis Obispo

“If you are fortunate enough to experience a performance by Próxima Parada, you will surely be reminded of all that is good about live music. Although classifying Próxima Parada under any music genre would be a tragic underestimation, it is safe to say that their musical sound is a blend ranging from folk and bluegrass to jazz, blues, and americana. In a musical world currently transfixed on electronic music, Próxima Parada reminds us all that no turn table or synthesizer can ever strike the same chord in our souls like a live performance that features harmonica, guitar, keyboard, bass, trumpet and mandolin. If the instrumental arrangement alone doesn’t get the crowd all hot and bothered, the vocal duo of Bryson Bailey and Nick Larson will surely get everyone within earshot to do a “little porch stompin’ now.” The band’s name–Próxima Parada–translates in Spanish to ‘Next Stop’, after seeing this group from San Luis Obispo, California perform live, there is no question that Próxima Parada is on the next stop to doing something truly special.” -Brian Gagliardi, Music Blogger, San Francisco [+]
