Corvallis' own DTW will headline da Vinci Days Summer Festival 2019!
DTW * 8:00- 9:30 * West Stage
Drawing equal influence from all of its 11 members, DTW is redefining the sound of horn bands. Moving away from the expected R&B/Soul covers, DTW blends elements of jazz, funk, reggae, and hip-hop to create fresh arrangements of iconic movie, tv, and video game themes, as well as inspired originals. With a sound reminiscent of Tower of Power, Lighthouse, and Chicago, the DTW trademark is to deliver complex arrangements on a foundation of deep, danceable grooves.
And ... the band will get lit (literally) to help us kick off the first ever Lumenata Light Parade, following their regular set. It's going to be an enlightened evening with DTW!!!
Lisa Landucci * 6:15 - 7:45 * East Stage
Ping ponging between Nashville Tennessee and Salem Oregon, Lisa Landucci is a seasoned singer-songwriter that’s been touring and performing throughout the U.S. since she was a little girl as an Americana/Country Artist. With special appearances on the Nashville network and the Grand ole' Opry.
As a performer, she’s had the honor of sharing the stage with Johnny Cash and Clint Black, and was supported by the family of Fred Rose (Hank Williams, Willie Nelson). After years of investing into other artists careers, Lisa released her first solo album, “Love You In A Song” in late 2018. Produced by Jason Carter (Frank Black, Pete Yorn, Art Brut), “Love You In A Song” is a beautiful and sometimes heart breaking story about relationships and life.
The Brutal Bridges Band * 4:30 - 6:00 * West Stage
This popular Corvallis band has been writing music and performing acoustic, guitar-driven rock and roll since 2012. Incorporating folk, blues, Americana, rockabilly, funk, grunge, indie and more, Brutal Bridges weaves together tales of life and death, affairs of the heart, the great outdoors, and dancing raccoons.
With two albums of original songs already on the market --"'Circles (2012)" and "Searching for St. Anthony (2014)" the band is set to release their new project late this year or early next. But don't miss hearing them live on Saturday, July 20 at da Vinci Days!
yOya * 2:45 - 4:15 * East Stage
yOya is the project of longtime songwriting partners Alex Pfender and Noah Dietterich. Natives of Corvallis, and friends since the fifth grade, Pfender and Dietterich grew up to the sound of rain in the fir trees and Graceland on cassette. When the duo moved to California they found themselves semi-consciously absorbing the electronic sounds of the LA scene. What emerged was yOya’s unique mix of folk-hearted songs, intricate vocal harmony, gritty synths, and thundering electronic beats.
Sakumuna * 1:00 - 2:00 * West Stage
SAKUMUNA means "to bless" in Kikongo—a language spoken in several countries in central Africa. This diverse, World Music band fuses traditional and modern genres from different parts of Africa, bringing Funk grooves, Reggae roots, Soul, Afro-Cuban beats, and House music elements to their set. Mainly inspired by personal life experiences, their songs, performed in several languages, carry a message of hope. Sakumuna's performance is a joyful and energetic celebration that blesses the hearts and lives of their audience through their melodies, harmonies, dancing, and storytelling.
