Goals Are Important

But not nearly as the process to achieve them.

We want to release a record that you will not stop listening to - that's our goal. How we get there is with your help! We've done our homework - built a list of killer songs, and found a team of engineers and producers that can help us achieve our biggest goal yet - our first full-length album.

 

We Built The Band

After five years, two major releases, and several changes to our lineup - WE DID IT! (RIP - 6 drummers, 4 guitarists, and a spooky ghost named Randy who was recently fired for being TOO spooky.)

Meet The Evening Guests as they were always meant to be:

Jokull Jonsson

Gerard Uht

Alec De Kervor

Kevin Summers

We're absolutely stunned by the support of our fans, family, and friends. Our ability to press on wouldn't be possible without it. We're excited to share with you the sum of our time - hopefully spent well.

Summerland

Summerland is a collection of stories.

The songs written from these stories reflect on depression, loss, relationships, and the realities of being a struggling artist - performed to inspire listeners to face those issues head-on with us. We've put every ounce of who we are into these songs and that's what we're looking to share with you through this album. We're obsessive, insane, hilarious, and often highly-caffeinated people who are in love with the music we make  - that's what we think is going to make Summerland something we can be proud of.   

Message us, call us, find out where we live through google [probably] - we'd love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to show you Summerland.

Love,

The Evening Guests

Risks and challenges

In order to keep steady creative control and realize the vision we set out to achieve, we've had to self-fund most of our recordings and merchandise. In order for "Summerland" to be a reality, and for it to be accessible to all - we will need the support of our community, our friends, our family, and anyone who wants a full-length Evening Guests album.

Our greatest challenge is, and always will be to continuously grow, and make a lot of noise while we do it - something we've been perfecting over time with great effort and very little budget. With your help, we'll be able to build - connecting to a greater audience than ever before.

In return from us, everyone who donates will know that all of our music will always come from a place of genuine honesty and a desire to give YOU something that we hope will become a part of your music collection -something that you won't know how you got by without.
