Sedona rock band 2 SUNS, whose socially conscious independent rock music provides spiritual nutrition in an era of societal transformation, will perform on Saturday, December 12, from 7-9 p.m., at a fundraiser for the Sedona Community Food Bank, in association with the Verde Food Council, at Studio Live, 215 Coffeepot Drive.

All proceeds will be donated to the food bank, and food collection boxes will also be available in the lobby at Studio Live, located next to Creative Flooring and Devi Yoga. Band members ask everyone to “honor the holiday spirit by helping support families in our community that need food at this special time of year.”

Seating is limited and tickets are available in advance for $15 at Golden Word Books & Music 1575 W. Hwy. 89A in Sedona (phone 928-282-2688). Tickets may be purchased at the door for $20 on the evening of the performance via cash or check.

2 SUNS, which includes lead vocalist Gina Donello on keyboard and bass, vocalist Gary Bettum on guitar, background vocalist Eva George on bass and guitar and drummer Bill Juharos, recently released its second CD, “Love Revolution.”

With original music “dedicated to love and peace,” the CD features song titles such as “Break the Cycle,” “Waiting in the Dawn,” “Beautiful World” and “Love Revolution.”

The group’s first release, “Dance of Life,” includes “New Reality,” “Believe in You” and many other upbeat tunes.

2 SUNS’ lively yet soothing rock music provides a “balm for the soul” at a time of upheaval and uncertainty when everyone could use an instant lift and melodious reminders that in calamity we can find hidden opportunity and, ultimately, positive transformation.

The Observer’s favorite, “Beyond the Veil,” evokes a distinct sixties’ sound that takes listeners back to a bygone era, replete with sitar music.

Gina Donello’s gorgeous, mellifluous voice flows like an angel and reassures us that it is, indeed, a “Beautiful World.” This is star-quality vocals reminiscent of a lucid Melissa Etheridge.

2 SUNS will raise your vibrations with its uniquely beautiful and inspiring sounds. Come join them in support of a good cause on December 12. You won’t be disappointed!
