Evan Saucedo’s music career began at the age of 11 by singing and dancing to Motown and Jackson 5 songs in his family living room. A year later, he was cast as the singing voice of Young Simba in the 2002 Disney Platinum Edition of The Lion King. The actor has numerous television, film and commercial acting credits to his name, including I’m With Her (2003) and Everwood (2002). He is also the singing voice on one of Progressive Insurance’s most successful commercials. For the past several years, Saucedo has performed as Bruno Mars in the nationally touring tribute show 24K Magic, and his absolute favorite part of entertainment is performing in front of a crowd and feeling the audience’s energy.
Singer/harmonica player/songwriter Matt Lomeo found a love for the Blues early in life, and became the youngest artist ever invited to perform at a Woodstock Festival at the age of ten in 1999. After stints in New York City as a college student and Syracuse, NY as host of the historic Sunday Night Blues radio broadcast, Matt enjoyed a two-year residency at Club Handy on World-Famous Beale Street in Memphis, TN before settling in Los Angeles.
For the past few years, Lomeo has hosted the weekly jam night at Ireland’s 32 Pub, one of the premier roots music sessions in Southern California. In 2022, he added his monthly “Hollywood Hayride” at the Maui Sugar Mill Saloon to his list of regular gigs. Matt’s truest voice is articulated through his songs. His first all-original album, When You Call, produced by Grammy-nominee Terry Wilson, was released in the summer 2022 to international acclaim. In 2023, Matt and his band reached the semifinal round of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, placing among the top 27 bands to compete worldwide. He also became a faculty member in the vocal department at the Los Angeles College of Music. Matt’s second all-original effort is forthcoming late 2023.
