Stoneflys are an original alternative/ska/reggae/jazz group of musicians formed out of Ventura and Kernville, California. The group is made up of members Guy Jeans (vocals and keytar), Tracy Kahanamoku (Bass), Robert Rachelli (drums),Dave Price (sax), Kevin Miller (trumpet) and Skabone Stan (Trombone). All members met while writing and performing music for the band Lion I's from Ventura, CA. The Stoneflys released an album, Emergence (2013) which was recorded at Colorbox recording Studios in Ventura, CA and engineered and mastered by Jeff Evans. They are currently working on a new recording which will be completed in 2017.
The true essence of the Stoneflys is best captured live where they are able to improvise and fully demonstrate their original brand of ska/rock/jazz, melody driven reggae, and pop. The Stoneflys have been a band and have been performing since 2013. In an effort to begin promoting new music, this winter 2017 the Stoneflys will embark on a US western regional tour playing in a town near you.
Recent performances include: 2016 Kern County Fair, Headliner for 2015 and 2016 "Fishstock Music Festival" in Kernville CA, Headliner for 2015, 2016 and 2017 "Whiskey Flats Days"- Kernvillle CA, Headliner "Kern Valley Summer Concerts in the Park"- Kernville CA, Temblor Brewing Company - Bakersfiled CA, 2014 Central Valley Sports and RV Show - Bakersfield, Pyrenees- Bakersfield, Surf Rodeo Music Festival -Ventura CA, Headliner for the SSFFC Annual Rendezvous, Fiesta Days- Camarillo, CA and many more.
