Iola Rose Band is steadily building a following in the greater Sacramento area with an eclectic mix American Roots, Alt Folk/Rock/Country, Hawaiian, Blues and Swing originals and covers. The on point harmonies of Susan Johnson (bass, guitar, vocals) and Bonnie Brown (guitar, vocals) highlight their 38-year singer/songwriter collaborations. Carla Fontanilla’s rhythm guitar, uke and vocals lend color and texture to the mix while Laura Bishop permeates with lead guitar and Hawaiian slack key guitar riffs. Guest performer Tina Macuha contributes her songwriting skills with Iola Rose’s arrangements on a number of original tunes. Besides being a popular local TV personality, Tina’s also a mom, a foodie, a volunteer, a lyricist and very funny.
