From there, he rocked the club scene with gigs in Hollywood, Pasadena, and Orange County. Making his way to the East Coast, K Fresh has had a Club & Radio debut in Miami, Florida and has honed his craft with many talents in the music industry including Tyrese Gibson, Steve Aoki, Reno Wilson and many more.
Early Evening Show with Local Favorite Cali Conscious and Old School Common Sense Reunion
Descano Beach Club follows the afternoon heart-thumping dance music with some reggae from special guest Old School Common Sense Band with Bill, Jai and Nick and local favorite Cali Conscious. Just when the evening cools down, expect a hot new vibe of energy because there’s no chance the music will stop anytime soon. Cali Conscious has quite the lineup for summer 2017, and their unique blend of beach music and reggae rock will get you in the spirit of soft island breezes, warm sand and cool salty surf. Currently working on their second album, their touching lyrics and catchy beat presents positive promotion of hope, love and living life in a meaningful way.
Likewise, the Common Sense band is having their first reunion after a long hiatus at the Descano Beach Club opening for Michael Franti. This Southern Cali band has merged their SoCal, beach town vibe with reggae rock to create a unique musical style like no other.
The Headliner: Michael Franti
Using his lyrics for social change, Michael Franti is viewed as one of the most prolific music writers and artists of our time. Fresh from their Japan tour, Michael Franti & Trio will be ready to rock the music lovers of Descano Beach Club with his beautiful blend of old-school soul, blues and hip hop. Touring with musicians like John Mayer and influenced by the legendary rhythms of Sly & Robbie, fans are in for a real treat as he delivers his signature, socially conscious desire for change in passionate lyrics and upbeat melodies.
