Chris Pierce has dominated the underground independent music scene in Los Angeles for years and has opened for the likes of B.B. King, Al Green, Macy Gray, Ben Harper and has toured with Seal. Pierce's musical presence is larger than life, echoing the classic R&B; sensibilities originated by Otis Redding, Ray Charles, and Bill Withers while his songwriting intelligence invites spectators into a space removed from time or trend, and turns them into participants in the stories he soulfully spins.
Shane Alexander, who we are proud to say played here at Mocha Maya's a year or so ago, returns with his career ever expanding. This last summer he was the opening act for the Styx Yes tour. He has also opened for Seal and Jewel on two tours. "...a cross between Jeff Buckley and John Mayer. Alexander is great!" - Music Connection "Jack Johnson, James Blunt, Jeff Buckley. You can effortlessly add the young American singer/songwriter Shane Alexander to this list of popular singer songwriters." - Willem Baars, Playboy
