Many thanks to Christopher Ford for keeping the dream alive!
Come early to avoid the line and keep in mind that this event tends to sell out. Come thirsty for beer and drink specials, and hungry for TASTY BBQ until it runs out.

It's going to be one crazy night! OLD SCHOOL!!!
--It's the Evangenitals 15-year anniversary (in which both Indo (Joey) and Outdo (Robert) of Ninja Academy play).
--The Ninjas haven't played together in 10 years, so who knows what's gonna happen!
--And we got the badass balloon bassist, Addi / Unpopable, rounding out the night with... you guessed it... Joey and Robert as the rhythm section.
FROM THE NINJAS:
Don't expect the Ninjas from 10 years ago as you might be disappointed. We're older, wiser, and give even less fucks than we did back then. Maybe we'll play your favorite songs, maybe we won't.
$5 cover and they’re selling old NINJA ACADEMY merch for SUPER CHEAP. Please take it off their hands.
The Evangenitals return to Pappy & Harriets for another magical, musical night of mayhem! Come dance, sing, emote, laugh, cry, FEEL with us! It’s gonna be an exorcism.

October 27th is a day to celebrate many things. It’s“American Beer Day”, “Cranky Co-Workers Day”, “Sylvia Plath Day”, as well as“National Black Cat Day”, “National Forgiveness Day”, and “World Day for AudioVisual Heritage”. Only one band in Los Angeles has a song that embodies each and every one of those things -- The Evangenitals! And that is something to celebrate! On October 27th at Boulevard Music in Culver City the Evangenitals take the stage at 8pm for two big sets of songs, stories, and sing-a-longs celebrating the full spectrum of human emotions and the darn good songs they make! Promising a solid PG-rating for the evening, the whole family is welcome to come fall in love with the diverse catalog of band leader and songwriter Juli Crockett, whose compositions range from truck-stop lullabies to Klezmer-punk-jazz odysseys, heartbreaking ballads to hillbilly stomp.
Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day by many. On Friday July 13th The Evangenitals will celebrate bad luck and bad love (and the good songs they make!) at the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena. A favorite of the legendary listening room, we will present an intimate double set of songs, stories, and sing-a-longs to ward off evil in these dark days.
Filling out the band on this glorious night will be vocalist Lisa Dee (Selah Gospel Choir), violinist Andrea Baker (The Moth Mainstage), bassist Cody Farwell (Goodnight Cody), Michael Feldman (Cousin Junebug) on keys, and Robert Shaffer (Ninja Academy) on drums and percussion.

What some folks have said:
“They seductively blow smoke rings of multi-colored campfire haze right through your musical senses. This is fun, freedom, and freak folk all delivered with a huge capital ‘F’.” (Jeff Perkins, Seattle Pi)
"I hope these underground bohemian diamonds stay true to themselves; they should never be tampered with." (Music News Nashville)
“The female harmonies between Juli Crockett and Lisa Dee are like the Andrews Sisters re-imagined as tragic mermaids… I haven’t heard harmonies ring this good since the Chapin Sisters were on the scene.” (LA Record)
"Transports you back to a time when the music came from front porches and folk gatherings that allowed for the songwriting to take center stage." (Today's Country Magazine)
“We’re talking about alt-country at its finest, but that’s only the start. Influences of Southern rock, cow punk and even a little klezmer pop make a tasty brew.” (Pasadena Weekly)
“Their sound is a chimera of American music, a blend of country, bluegrass, jazz and rock, with soul-fondling lyrics, which might leave your skin wet from dancing and your eyes dripping tears of joy all in the same evening.” (Monterey County Weekly)
The Evangenitals are coming back to Pappy & Harriets!!! Mark your calendars and book your room. On Saturday June 23rd we're going to keep those ribs warm with some flamin' hot sets chock full of new tunes!

The 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. Since then the bands 2003 inception, they have recorded three albums, created several plays and radio dramas, toured the US in a bus of dubious reliability, appeared at scores of clubs from Los Angeles to Louisiana and traveled all the way to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Evangenitals boast one of the most eclectic resumes in the indie music world.

The legendary Bob Stane says not to miss "THE EVANGENITALS….. A NO HOLDS BARRED Friday evening of song and wit….."
Friday April 28th 2017
8pm - 10:10pm
For Reservations/Information call (626) 798-6236 between 10 A. M. and 10 P.M.
EVANGELICAL: Characterized by ardent or crusading enthusiasm; zealous
GENITALS: The organs of creation; the sexual organs; the private parts
Put them together and what have you got? The Evangenitals!
Combining pioneer lineage with a love of performing arts, the Evangenitals take listeners on a journey of passion and creative freedom, embracing all of life as source material and relishing in the complexity and humor of the human experience. Ranging from truck-stop lullabies to Klezmer-punk-jazz, ballads & barn-burners to hillbilly stomp, and citing influences from the new-wave intelligentsia of the Talking Heads to the archetypal fire of Johnny Cash, all welded together with Alabama-soul and the best of Folk tradition: The jukebox at the Mad Hatters tea party is the Evangenitals.
Founded by playwright/director Juli Crockett and opera, jazz & gospel singer Lisa Dee, The Evangenitals 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. At times the songs are lushly poetic, at others, coarsely powerful. They are as infectious as they are ambitious, filled with humor, insight, mystery and wonder.
The Evangenitals boast one of the most eclectic resumes in the indie music world. As live performers, they’ve built a fiercely loyal following through a thousand shows at clubs, coffee houses and festivals throughout the world (including Scotland’s prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival). Their shows are notable for music that can be bawdy and rollicking in one moment, and, in the next, sufficiently mysterious and haunting to make the rowdiest of beer brawlers pause, turn toward the stage and listen.
The group’s shape-shifting lineup frequently consists of principal writer/vocalist Juli Crockett, gospel/jazz singer Lisa Dee, keyboardist Michael Feldman, bassist Joey Maramba, Andrea Baker on fiddle, Daniel Mark on mandolin, Danny Graziani on fiddle and harmonica, Ari DeSano on accordion, and an ensemble of eclectic drummers. In any assemblage, this band delivers 110% Entertainment for the mind, body, and soul.
Well, this has never happened before! Juli Crockett of the Evangenitals is going to play an evening of music IN THE NUDE (aka solo) and IN THE ROUND (aka Jay to the left of me! Morgan to the right!), swapping songs and stories with Jay Souza (Patrolled By Radar) and Morgan Geer (Drunken Prayer, Freakwater) ALL NIGHT LONG at the Redwood Bar in DTLA.
It's Monday Night! Come Mourn the Downfall of Western Civilization, Pt. 2!!!
