the experienceCombining a love of jazz, soul, and Brazilian music, The Experience was formed in the summer of ’10 with one goal: to play and create exceptional music. Mandolinist Eva Scow and Drummer Ray Moore along with guitarist Mike Taylor and bassist Patrick Olvera came together to create a sound fusing their different musical influences; ranging from Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bilal, Floetry, Esperanza Spalding, Chico Pinheiro, and more. The Experience deliver a live performance that captivates. They lay down the foundation and weave an intimate synergy creating a sound experience that breaks new ground but stays irrepressibly melodic and accessible.
