BIOGRAPHY

Rainbow City Park is an indie alt-rock/dream pop band from Northern California. The band draws inspiration from 90’s alt-rock acts such as Third Eye Blind and The Smashing Pumpkins, infusing their music with a modern twist akin to the sounds of Boygenius and Snail Mail. Band members reside in both San Francisco and the Central Valley, converging in Sacramento for rehearsals.

Sonically, Rainbow City Park takes you on a journey through various soundscapes, from dance-inducing rhythmic sections to heavy breakdowns, to ethereal interludes where shimmering guitars blend seamlessly with the vocals. The lyrical content often delves into existential and melancholic themes, offering a stark contrast to the buoyant musical atmosphere. This juxtaposition finds its resonance with artists they admire, such as Phoebe Bridgers, Frightened Rabbit, and Pinegrove.

Fronting the band is the charismatic Dani Judith, a multi-talented artist who wears the hats of an audio engineer and music teacher when she’s not playing with Rainbow City Park. The trio of guitarists, including Dani herself, Nick Nassab, and Chris O’Keefe, weaves intricate melodies that intertwine with Dani’s vocals. Their signature indie-rock sound is heavily influenced by their love of Fender guitars and an array of pedals that shape their tone. The rhythm section provides the backbone of the band, with accomplished musicians Dwight Struthers on bass and Ryan Williams on drums.

The band’s story begins in 2021, when Chris, pondering life’s priorities in the wake of the pandemic, decided to put together an indie project. After many hours spent scouring Craigslist and other platforms for the right members, Rainbow City Park was formed in early 2022 and released three singles with former lead vocalist Maria Angelica before she stepped away from the project. The band’s first year ended on a high note with the opportunity to open for Japanese Breakfast and The National Parks at Sacramento’s Farm to Fork Festival.

As a 5-piece with Dani as lead vocalist, the band released three songs in 2023: double single “Broken Record / Dad Jeans” in May and “Convince You” in October. Beginning February 2024, Rainbow City Park will support the release of their next single, “Valentine’s Day 1999,” with a series of shows throughout California.
