ATASCADERO — On Saturday, Jan. 14, from 6 to 9 p.m., the Last Stage West BBQ Restaurant and Music Venue, 15050 Morro Road, will host the Sound of Ghosts, a popular Los Angeles-based Americana rock band.
The Sound of Ghosts, composed of the Orbisons and Rivas families, trumpet player Christian Robinson, Jon Sarna on drums and Phoebe Silva on fiddle, grew their original inspiration from friend and fellow music lover David Lamb, founder of the popular folk band Brown Bird, who recently died of leukemia.
Current Sound of Ghosts band members originally began separate music careers but joined forces in Lamb’s honor to become the very literal and figurative family they are today.
Influenced by modern indie rock bands like The Devil Makes Three, Nathaniel Rateliff and St. Paul and The Broken Bones, the Sound of Ghosts combines a variety of sounds — from jazz and rock to punk and metal — into surprisingly harmonious Americana sounds, said band member James Orbison.
The Sound of Ghosts, though still an up-and-coming band, stays busy with gigs booked almost every weekend. Their goal is to eventually expand further outside of the Los Angeles area; however, they have played at countless notorious venues, such as Molly Malone, the Roxy in West Hollywood, Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, and just recently returned from traveling to cities in the Southwest, including Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tucson.
The Jan. 14 event will feature the release of their first album, “Come Home,” which was recorded at the famous NRG Recording Studios in north Hollywood that has also worked with other popular rock bands like No Doubt and Linkin Park. The album will be available for purchase at thesoundofghosts.com.
