About

sunseshla is a private concert series & community for talented artists & passionate patrons of the arts.

The live Audience

live AUDIENCE MEMBERS MUST BE INVITED BY SOMEONE WHO HAS ATTENDED SUNSESHLA BEFORE. ENTRANCE IS NOT PERMITTED WITHOUT A RESERVATION.

 

Online Audience

Our venue is small and our Monthly events are invite-only, but you can still participate in our community without attending.

follow us on social media to see behind-the-scenes footage/pictures. Check out our calendar to see where the artists are playing and catch their next show.

the artists

We believe in "bands before brands." which means, we don't care if an artist has 100 or 1,000,000 followers. if they're good, we want them on our stage. 

 

 


booking

most of our talent is booked the old-fashioned way, at live shows. we do not book anyone unless we have seen them in the flesh or in an impressive live video. anyone can sound good in a studio. we want artists who can deliver without performance-enhancing technology. craft and soul are essential.

the Core Crew

Geoff Elsmar Jack-of-all-trades, master of some. Geoff does it all, but most likely you'll find him in the booth on Sundays. From lights to the sound board, he's got skills. He's also responsible for the weekly lineup announcement that is delivered to your inbox every week.  You can also hear all of Geoff's talent playing bass in several bands throughout Los Angeles.

JD Feighner JD is one of our fantastic sound guys. When he's not behind the board, he's taking care of lights, Power Point, and the occasional FB live stream. He loves whiskey, preferably small-batch, 'cause he's fancy.  JD is currently working on building his own studio. He's also a singer-songwriter. Listen to his stuff HERE.

Sami Grisafe Sami is the lone-lady in this core crew. She is most recognized as the host of SunSeshLA, but she does much more than crack jokes and ask artists questions. Behind the scenes she is the co-curator, website manager, and organizes all the madness that is our Google Drive. When she's not at SunSeshLA, Sami is rocking the mic solo or with her band, writing songs, and playing quarterback for the Chicago Force Women's Tackle Football Team.

Evan Ryan You most likely hear the word "blastin'" at least once out of this core crew member's mouth. Truth is, he is always doing just that. Evan is the stage manager, co-curator, and general theatre manager.  You can find Evan drumming his (and your) face off all over Los Angeles in multiple bands. He also runs The Drum School Los Angeles and produces tracks in his home studio. Like we said, he's blastin'. Read more about him HERE.

Colin Wolfe Mr. Wolfe, as we affectionately call him, is a vetted badass. He has worked with prolific artist like Madonna, Michael Jackson and Dr. Dre to name a few. His resume as a producer and bass player is wayyyyy too long for us to include here, but you can see his credits HERE. On Sundays he's up in the sound booth making the room sound amazing and reminding all of us how lucky we are to have him.
