Anthony & AJ join forces playing together as a trio with Chad Bowen of Blue Summit!

Sat. March 6
Dinner starts at 6:30 & Showtime 8pm

   $45 for dinner and show  Seated <21 w/parent

Join us for a special evening when two of Santa Cruz's favorites join up for a night not to be missed. Expect to hear everything from folk to rock and of course some country and bluegrass. Chad Bowen from Blue Summit will join to make an unforgettable trio performance.

Anthony Arya is a songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist and the leader of multiple bands. In 2018 Arya was on Season 15 of NBC's The Voice. Shortly after, he released his debut album, “Going To California,” and has since performed hundreds of shows around the Bay Area. In June 2020 Anthony was awarded the Presidential Scholar in the Arts by the US Department of Education. In May 2020, Arya released his second album, “The Road.” Recently he released a live album of holiday tunes recorded last December.

AJ Lee, a singer, songwriter, and mandolinist is the leader of the bluegrass band Blue Summit. Drawing from influences such as swing, folk, blues, jazz, country, soul, and rock, their undeniable talent and insatiable passion for bluegrass harks back to traditional classics while remaining uniquely modern. Over the years, AJ Lee and Blue Summit's performed all around the country as well as in the UK, Ireland, and France. They've accrued many devout followers and distinctions including the Freshgrass 2019 Band Contest Winner, IBMA 2019 Momentum Vocalist of the Year, 2nd Place at the 2019 Winfield Guitar Competition, and numerous awards in Northern California. In 2019, AJ Lee and Blue Summit came out with their debut album, "Like I Used To," which consists entirely of AJ's original songs.

Chad Bowen was born and raised in Northwest Ohio and has been with Blue Summit since May 2018. A hardworking musician, Chad has been playing bass with numerous bands in the Bay area for almost 10 years. Music has always been a huge part of his life. Growing up he played piano, guitar, and sang in choirs. Eventually he gravitated to the double bass where he finds himself today smiling big, holding down the low end, singing sweet harmonies and sometimes singing lead on popular Grateful Dead tunes.
