It all began in January of 2012 when a close group of friends began jamming together with the idea of melding their individual styles to create sincere and meaningful music that keeps a good groove. The streets of San Luis Obispo were their first stage—and over the past year, Próxima Parada has grown musically and stylistically while performing at many of the Central Coast’s premier venues and music festivals. Próxima Parada released Makes You Wanna, their first extended play album on April 12th, 2013. Listeners describe their music as a dynamic blend of blues, soul, jazz, and folk, depending on the song, but the most important elements to their music are interesting rhythms, dynamic variability, and a strong sense of musical integrity. The members of Próxima Parada live and perform as close friends, so their concerts are always energetic, loving, and intimate.
In February 2014, Próxima Parada, of San Luis Obispo, CA, ran an Indiegogo Campaign that garnered overwhelming support, totaling $18,665, which has allowed them the opportunity to record their debut album, “Songs of Music,” to be released September 26th, 2014.
