8PM THE STANDARDS 
9PM - 12PM AN EVENING WITH RAQUEL RODRIGUEZ & FRIENDS

"We want to play loud music with a groove that people can dance and drink to," she declares. "You've got to physically feel it when we're on stage or in your speakers. It has to be loud, dirty and gritty"
The Standards: Vocalist Ryan Marker and multi-instrumentalist Michael Sebastian had been playing music together for years. In a coffee shop one evening they discovered the slide guitar stylings of Dennis Clark, and The Standards were born. After years playing as a trio, they expanded and added stand-up bassist Ray Guajardo & percussionist Cameron Clarke and as a five piece unit, The Standards have been jamming together ever since.....
