The Evolution Orange Band Performing Live on the Arcade Stage from Noon to 2 PM

Evolution Orange is an alternative soul/rhythm & blues/pop band hailing from the Washington D.C. metropolitan area creating their own dynamic high energy soulful sound. Hailing from Philadelphia, drummer Stephen Blaze brought together powerful singer/songwriters Wes Glover and Rhashawn Sumlin, both from DC, to front Evolution Orange. They were later joined by veteran musicians Doug Forsythe from Hawaii on guitar, percussionist James “Jumbe” Gilliam from Philly, and Kevin Carter from Washington, DC on bass. The band’s first three song EP was released in August of 2015 featuring the song ‘Brown’s Town’ (a tribute to Micheal Brown and all the victims of police brutality and their families), ‘EVO Blues’ a great hand dance favorite, and ‘Love Song’ a hipnotic groove that will keep you pressing replay. A full CD is planned to be released in 2016. Evolution Orange is a band on on a musical journey bringing that E.O. groove to the world!
