This Saturday evening (February 14, 2015) The Coachella Valley Art Scene will be hosting our 6th annual DOO WOP IN THE DESERT. This event’s mission is to bring back the art of romance and is a fundraiser for our nonprofit organization.
The Doo Wop is a retro themed dance party that will be held at the Pavilion inside the Indian Wells Golf Resort. We encourage people to dress in their best mid-century attire, we decorate the venue like a 1950’s prom, and have a cute photo booth to boot. But one of the most special, and impressive, features to our event is our musical line-up. This year we will feature 5 local music acts – all who will be covering a special night of Doo Wop classics.
This is a very special event to attend in the desert. No other night throughout the year will you see these artists cover these songs. Nor will you see your friends dressing up so fancy!
We are looking forward to seeing you out there this Saturday!!
And don’t forget – 100% of the proceeds go towards The Coachella Valley Art Scene’s 501c3 Non Profit Organization!! So share the love!!
INTERVIEW : EEVAAN TRE
conducted by Mayor Pizza of The Coachella Valley Art Scene
Mayor Pizza: I just wanted to start off by saying thank you for taking time for the interview. I’ve heard nothing but good things about you and what you do around the valley, can you tell us about yourself?
Eevaan Tre: I grew up right here around the valley. I lived in Indio and Coachella growing up. My parents came here for greater opportunities and so we could seek a better education. I now live and work here.
Mayor Pizza: You said you grew up in Coachella? So did I!
Eevaan Tre: Did you really? My older brother was the Mayor of the city.
Whoa, small world.
It really is. It seems like we’ve been part of Coachella forever and growing up with my brother being in office, I was always involved with helping out in the community and non-profit organizations. I love that city.
As far as your music background goes, have you performed with anyone else before you formed “The Show”?
I haven’t. When I was 19 I decided I really wanted a band. We went through a couple of players and eventually I had a band and named it ‘The Show’. I remember on my breaks and after work, I would go to a piano shop behind the spot I was working at and play music. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be an artist and entertain…now I get the chance to perform and it’s awesome.
What’s your favorite thing about performing?
What I like about it is; no matter what I’m doing or where I’m at, anything can happen. There’s always something coming up or something to do. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and now it’s a reality.
I can agree with you on that. I have some good friends who are musicians. When they talk about music and performing, they talk about the possibility and spontaneity of it all. I think it’s major for anyone to get paid to do exactly what they enjoy.
Now aside from the promotion of yourself and your band, do you promote any other music events?
Apart from the organizations who support us, no. I’ve been focusing on myself and my band. We’re making sure we do things right.
Do you have any projects you are currently working on?
At the moment, yes- I’m actually working on releasing an album. I’m really taking my time with this because you only get to do this once. I want to put something out that I’ve worked hard on that I know people will like.
You’re going to be playing at Doo Wop in the Desert this year; do you have any favorites from that era of music?
Not really a favorite, but the style is definitely one I enjoy. You can see how the style of vocalizing and the simplicity of the melodies have influenced the industry today. Big bands and classical kind of ruled the era before Doo Wop and it just threw something new into the world.
You’re an R&B artist; I assume you’re very smooth when it comes to dating. Can you tell me what would be the best way to ask someone to Doo Wop?
*laughs* I think what it all comes down to is your personality. Personality goes a very long way. You have to have charisma and character. You know? Be confident in yourself and your actions. Put all of this together and you’ll definitely have an audience.
Well thank you for your time and the interview, we’ll be seeing you at Doo Wop in the Desert!
No problem. See you guys soon!
