Juli Crockett & THE EVANGENITALS! free


he Evangenitals, founded by playwright/director Juli Crockett and

opera, jazz&gospel singer Lisa Dee are an alt-country/Americana

love revolution made flesh for your listening pleasure. On a quixotic

crusade in the key of life hell-bent on breaking hearts open, they are a

genre-bending, ever-creating force of nature.

Combining pioneer

lineage with a love of performing arts, the Evangenitals push not only

the frontiers of creativity, but strive to foster a renaissance of

compassion, love and gratitude as the platform to engage in global

collaboration, activism, and community building.

Filled with an

insatiable desire to explore new forms of musical instrumentation and

arrangements, the Evangenitals take listeners on a journey of passion

and creative freedom, embracing all of life as source material, from the

mundane to the sublime.

The Evangenitals were midwifed in 2003 at Mr T's

Bowl, a defunct bowling alley in Highland Park, where they gave their

first performance for a small mixed group of rehab refugees and listless

drunks (and Arlo) for Christmas.

Since then the band has recorded

three albums, created several plays and radio dramas, toured the U.S.

in a bus of dubious reliability with The 1 Second Film, appeared at

scores of clubs from Los Angeles to Louisiana, Northern California to

New York, and traveled all the way to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
