Rafael Tranquilino is known locally in the Seattle area as the lead front man and guitarist of his band, The Rafael Tranquilino Band. A power trio consisting of guitar, bass and drums that fuse rock, blues and funk with an alternative and fresh sound. He’ll play a searing riff, tease you with an old fashioned Delta slide and then bring you back down with his powerful lyrics.
Rafael comes from a musical family, playing music before he was ten years old. Since then, he's learned to play (and play well) drums, harmonica, keyboards, bass and guitar, which is what he's best known for. He initially gained a reputation in the Northwest playing guitar and acting as musical director for the Randy Oxford Band before branching out for himself and launching the Rafael Tranquilino Band.
THE OLSON BAND
The Olson Band burst onto the country music scene in 2013 when they won a national songwriting contest for their hit song "Sunrise" in the Texaco Country Showdown, winning them a trip to Nashville to consult with a publishing company and being introduced at The Grand Ole' Opry. The band originated in Olympia, WA and is lead by singer/songwriters and brothers Luke and Isaac Olson and recent addition, Kaylee Rose Olson. Since then, the band has released two full length albums “Lookin’ At You” and “Let The Jack Drop” and an EP “A New High”. They have toured heavily up in the Pacific Northwest the past few years playing in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, along with receiving radio time in WA for their singles “Kiss Me Slow”, “By and By” and most recently “If I Find You”. Their single “If I Find You” just hit over 2 million streams on Spotify. The bands highly anticipated 3rd studio album "Dancin' In Headlights" was released early 2019 in physical copies and is set for digital release in May.
