                                                                             About Abrakadabra

 

 Well-known in southern California for its driving propulsive jazz/pop rhythms, Abrakadabra boasts a library of 50+ original compositions, as well as an extensive cover playlist.  Influenced by bands like Malo, War, El Chicano and Santana, Abrakadabra is a high-energy, versatile Group fusing Island, Latin, Funk, Reggae, Pop and Rock, and adding its own jazzy melodies and pop harmonies to create its unique musical signature.                                                              

 

In the ‘80’s, Abrakadabra was the house band at Hermosa Beach’s legendary Lighthouse, consistently playing to sold-out crowds. 

 

The Group also performed extensively at County fairs and city-sponsored festivals, as well as in the area’s popular bars and clubs on the LA jazz circuit with groups Los Lobos and Chicago.             


         After the Group disbanded in 1986, they still occasionally played together and officially reformed in 2006 with some of its original members. It has been treating fans to sold-out performances in local clubs, festivals, street fairs, winery concerts and at charity benefits.

         Silenced by the Covid pandemic, in 2021 Abrakadabra shifted gears into a totally instrumental format with founding member Jon Coleman (guitar, marimba, vibraphone), John Rodgers (acoustic and electric bass), Vince Brooks (drums, percussion) and Tom Lujan (percussion).

 

Abrakadabra tears it up with its high energy driving percussion on favorites from Latin Jazz to Standards to Pop to wonderful originals that will have you up on your feet and partying with the band!
