Summer Babies

August 13, 2021 10:00 pm PDT

Second Stage

Doors Open: 9:30 pm


Summer Babies, formerly known as Freak Fingers, is a Los Angeles-based R&B/soul group. They are lead by the sultry voice and smooth bass thumping of Joan Sullivan who co-writes and produces music with composer and guitarist, Andre Paolo Juan. This year, they added two members to fill out a live band and quickly realized their sound had matured into something newer and more deliberate. With Manny Spero on drums/ percussion and Eric Gutierrez on keys, Freak Fingers became Summer Babies. They are inspired by the soulful sounds of artists from the 70s and 80s like Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, and Sade while also channeling contemporary R&B artists like Cleo Sol, Snoh Aaelegra, and H.E.R. Manny and Andre hail from the East Coast, Joan comes from the South, and Eric is a native West Coaster. They were all brought together, drawn to Los Angeles for the possibility of a calling each of them heard. Now, surrounded by close cohorts, they came to realize that their potential is magnified when they are altogether.
