RED HAND

Red Hand is one of the much more rock-based bands at RIOS. With much influence from bands like Nirvana and Weezer, this band loves really hitting it home with their own punky style. All the members love playing this genre of grunge rock making them an overall really solid group.

THE SWELL

The Swell is a band project that started with more folk covers but as it's grown it's members now love to play more alternative Indie songs.  With airy vocals and down to earth instrumentals, this band gives off a Cali Coast Vibe.

SYNESTHESIA

The name refers to a condition in which you see sound as color, and this band strives to bring new color and new energy into all the songs they play. With strong piano elements, layered vocals, and fantastic percussive roots, not to mention the soft drone of the cello, Synesthesia is a Rios favorite. 


THE FLASH BAND

The Flash Band consists of 4 talented kids who love to rotate instruments, share the lead singer role, back each other up and generally share their talents equally throughout the band. This makes them a very fun band to watch!

RUNNING WILD

Running Wild is our newest Rios band and we are excited to see how they develop! They focus on mostly acoustic songs with nostalgia and harmony.

Sunshine Brooks Theater, Oceanside

This Kala ukulele is one of my favorites because of the way it's built. I have used many and this is by far my favorite soprano ukulele on Amazon. It feels sturdy, it holds it's tune (once it's been broken in a bit) and it won't get dinged or bent if it gets dropped by little hands. I really love the saturation of the paint. It pops out from the rest which helps young learners get excited about playing. Anything that encourages them to pick up their instrument is a good thing. The only thing I wish it had was a peg so you can wear a strap. If you are interested in playing standing up, or in front of a crowd, you might want to consider this ukulele. It is larger, it has a built in tuner and it can be plugged into an amp.

If you are considering getting the super fun, brightly colored, Kala Soprano listed above, please also consider purchasing a clip-on tuner, a hard case (or a soft case) and a ukulele hanger for the wall and a music stand, and some soft felt picksThe case will keep the uke safe when it's being toted around. However, once back at home, I recommend always keeping your instrument out of its case. You are 100 percent more likely to play it if you can see it! The music stand will ensure that there is an organized place to keep your sheet music where it won't get lost in the shuffle, and you won't have to look down on your lap or strain your neck to read off a flat table surface. When you're not practicing, or jamming with your friends, you can hang your pretty instrument on the wall. Instruments make the best wall art!
