The Rayos & Ancient Wave Tribe




The Miners Foundry is pleased to present The Rayos & Ancient Wave Tribe: World Rhythm and Groove on Friday, October 13, 2017.  The Rayos is a new musical tribe bringing together members across the generations.  Their original songs are flavored with a tasty blend of African, Latin, backporch blues, harmonies, lots of percussion, and jamming leads of acoustic / electric guitars and violin.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m.  Standing / Dancing concert with limited seating available.  Tickets are $20.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, and in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.

The Rayos are based in Nevada City, CA.  Many in the band have supported Saul Rayo and wife Elena in earlier bands Rayo and Cocina del Mundo and have garnered devoted fans over the years.  Recent members infuse freshness and innovation.  The musicians rehearse and record live at the Rayos’ analog Ancient Wave Studios and encourage community and healing through their music.  From the moment The Raylos & Ancient Wave Tribe hit the stage, a world of happines and spiritual connection opens up for the audience through their magical vibe.  Come be a part of the tribe, dance for hours and drop in deep!

Ancient Wave Tribe members include Saul Rayo, Elena Rayo, Thomas Schuebel, Lou Meyer, Ajeet Campbell, Mark Thayer, Gary Greenberg, Kim Kinjo, Cassidy Joy, Doug Davies, and Brady Mills.
