triple double band
Triple Double Band is a collection of creative songwriters who piece together an eclectic mix of popular genres to create a colorful sound with a positive message for humanity. Using three part vocal harmonies, dance inducing rhythms and driving complex melodies, they produce soul inspiring upbeat feel good rock.
The group partakes in a collaborative and democratic approach to songwriting, which results in compositions that reveal shades of different styles ranging from jazz to reggae to hip-hop. The band combines emotive singing with poetic and catchy lyrics that encourage tangible human growth through love, harmony and unity tinged by the surreal and the fantastic.
Triple Double Band is fronted by brothers Jimi (Guitar) and Tom (Drums) Cracovaner, who have built a musical rapport after many years of playing together. With talented bass player Preston Winter, creative pianist Alex Sandweiss and expressive saxophonist Aran Canally, the band strives to entertain and bring their musical art to audiences for the purpose of creating joy and excitement. Their intense live shows are full of energetic audience interaction and intricate solos, and reflect the band’s belief in the power of music as a means of spiritual communication.
Leila Lopez has been compared to the likes of Ani Difranco and Fiona Apple. Her original finger picking style and poetic lyrics have captivated listeners both locally and nationally.
Leila grew up in Tucson Arizona, surrounded by a musical family and slowly began to cultivate a passion towards music at an early age. Encouraged by her family, Leila began to play Guitar when she was eight years old, and eventually moved on to learn the bass guitar, piano, cello, drums, banjo and mandolin.
