Stone Iris to mix it up at Fox & Goose
So the website's description of the band known as Stone Iris goes like this: "If James Brown had love children and they made a super-cool blues, soul, rock and reggae-inspired collective, it would definitely be Edmonton, AB (Alberta)-based Stone Iris."
Their newest album, "Illuminations," is the group's seventh and they're coming to the Fox & Goose next weekend to promote it.
Stone Iris started out as a basement project for brothers Garret and El Niven. Now seven members strong, the band has a mature sound that's easy to groove to.
When: 9 p.m. Saturday; Sly Park will also perform
Where: Fox & Goose, 1001 R St., Sacramento
Tickets: $5 cover charge
