Sep 27-30: The Hats @ Eudora Station


Sure, Eudora Station has great food. But they also have great music, making it the perfect place to chill out and relax with friends after a long day at work. The Hats, Eudora's house band, sets the mood over at Eudora with their upbeat rock, funk and pop tunes every week (from Wednesday through Saturday at 9.30pm-1am). The band is composed of five very different, very talented members who come from all corners of the globe. With her smooth vocals Havana-native Dayana is the main singer behind the group. Jose is on the keyboards and influences the band's sound with his Latin-infused style. Guitarist Alex and drummer Richard both hail from Venezuela and draws influence from a wide array of rock and Latin musicians. And last but not least, bassist Rolando does it all from rock and pop to reggae and salsa. You can check 'em out this week (and every week) at Eudora Station.  

Every Wed-Sat, 9.30pm-1am; Eudora Station.
