The Live Oaks
The Live Oaks (formally Evan & the Live Oaks) are a throwback folk & roll band from Oakland, California that pays homage to late 60's, early 70's pop music. Songs that make you think, and a band that gets you movin'. Like Creedence meets The Band. The band ranges from a two piece all the way to a 11 piece with horns and backup singers depending on the stage and budget. Lead by drummer/singer Evan Lanam, the group of friends has been touring extensively the last 3-4 years and have been opening for notable acts touring through the Bay Area. Recently helped sell out premier venues in San Francisco, both the Rickshaw with Larkin Poe, and The Independent with Sweet Plot, they are on a roll and are not slowing down.
Evan has been fortunate to share the stage with Larkin Poe, Lindi Ortega, Sweet Plot, Shinyribs, Kelley Stoltz, Insects Vs. Robots, Willy T. Taylor, Rainbow Girls, Coffis Brothers, Tommy Alexander and hundreds more.
