Join us for a special champagne brunch and wildfire benefit featuring El Radio Fantastique on Sunday, December 10th, 2017 to help raise money for people and families victimized by the Northern California wildfires. We raised money all month long in November and wanted to host a special December benefit to help those in need of food and shelter during the holidays. Please come show your support at this very special benefit. Enjoy a relaxing champagne brunch with mimosa’s and delectable food, then make your way into the historic Empress Theatre for a dramatic afternoon performance by El Radio Fantastique. Thank you for your support!
El Radio Fantastique is the band that would be playing at Salvadore Dali’s birthday party. They are the band that defies all labels and description, that floats effortlessly across genres while always conveying a sense of cinematic drama, reckless abandon, and broken beauty. Through lush arrangements, driving rhythms and pop hooks, the dynamic swell of emotion that emanates from this group is undeniably deep. If Anton Lavey, Frank Sinatra and David Bowie dropped acid in New Orleans and had an orgy with The Beatles, their unholy offspring would be El Radio Fantastique.
“The band hails from Point Reyes Station and is led by its founder, Giovanni Di Morente. Whether channeling disparate past experiences as a grave digger, dumpster diver, or pop star, DiMorente fancies the broken and the crooked, and he celebrates them with sublime melody and passion. Di Morente and the other members of El Radio Fantastique have bonds that go back to childhood. This deep connection manifests itself in their sound and in the familiar spell they cast onstage.
