Recap: Canja Rave and Jaiguru at Gabe's (VIDEO)

Posted by Drew Bulman | May 21, 2010 | Arts & Entertainment

Rock Island’s Jaiguru (pictured above) dropped by Gabe’s in Iowa City Wednesday to put on a little show, finishing off with an impressive cover of the Beatles’ “Abbey Road.” Given that their name is an homage to the Beatles in itself, it seemed an appropriate finale before Brazil’s Canja Rave took the stage. Take a look at the following two clips to see what the Quad Cities live music scene has been cooking up as of late.


Canja Rave (pictured above), the quirky duo from Porto Alegre, Brazil, followed up Jaiguru with their own impressive performance. Although the group came out of South America, their passion for American rock and roll has has allowed them to develop quite a unique sound, blending gruff, snappy vocals with simple–yet meaty–chord progressions one might otherwise hear at a White Stripes concert.

No doubt such comparisons have been made before, but the key digression between these two groups is that Paula Nozzari of Canja Rave can actually play the drums. Check them out below, and feel free to visit our Youtube channel for more videos of this show and many others.
