George Cole & Eurocana
Eurocana is the name of George Cole's band, and it also describes a musical genre. This thrilling alchemy is a celebration of the great American Songbook with inspiration from the Gypsy-fueled jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Eurocana is: George Cole on lead vocals and lead guitar, Echae Kang on violin, Mathias Minquet on guitar and Kaeli Earle on vocals and acoustic bass.
George Cole: Guitarist, vocalist, and composer. George Cole brings vast experience and consummate talent to each show and every project. He has toured with Joe Walsh, recorded with producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen and Paul McCartney), and performed, with jazz legend Keely Smith. George was guitar instructor and mentor to Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt of Green Day. Garnering rave reviews and standing ovations across the country, George has dazzled audiences at musical landmarks as varied as the Carnegie Hall in New York to the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.
Mathias Minquet: French/Argentinian guitarist Mathias Minquet is an exceptionally talented multi-instrumentalist who is a graduate of both The Sorbonne in Paris and Berklee College of Music. His varied musical experience includes performing with Enrique Iglesias, Laura Pausini, and the Pussycat Dolls. Mathias demonstrates a wide-ranging base of knowledge and skilled mastery of many styles, and his breathy French vocals add another entire dimension to the band.
Echae Kang: Echae was hailed as the star violinist at Berkelee School of Music where she graduated with honors in May, as well as at her alma mater the Seoul Jazz Academy. Echae is a master of classical violin and found that her love of jazz - both gypsy and straight-ahead styles - drew her in a different direction. She's played with string virtuoso Mark O'Connor, legendary bassist Ron Carter, Grammy nominated vocalist Lalah Hathaway, and Academy Award nominated composer Alan Silvestri.
Kaeli Earle: Kaeli, a rising star from Bellingham, Washington, is a multi-instrumentalist accomplished in piano, cello, and acoustic bass. She adds her remarkable talents, skill, and non-stop energy to Eurocana as vocalist and musician.
