Our favorite band

Nick and Ari

This is my all time favorite musical group. They were called Ari and the Alibis, but they are now going by Ariella, whether it’s the full band or just Ari and her husband guitarist Nicholas Kraster. Ariella McManus leads the band with vocals, many her original songs. The following story of love and redemption is one of my favorites, Don’t be Afraid from the Home album.

Don’t be afraid

The group is based in Sarasota, but play all around the Bay Area. The photo above was taken at the Hideaway in St. Petersburg by Lenore Duensing, a brilliant photographer that was nice enough to share her front row table with us. I’ve also caught them at Caddies, both Gulfport and Sunset Beach locations and the Ale and the Witch in St. Petersburg.
