Mino Yanci is comprised of keyboardist Damani Rhodes, bassist Christian Moore, guitarist Brandon Kendricks and drummer Somadhi. Formed in Sacramento, the quartet honed their skills in their hometown before expanding their reach to the Bay Area. Venues like Momo Sacramento and Harlow’s continue to welcome the band whenever they are back home.
Their debut performance at Summer Fest in 2017 with SOL Development captured the hearts of South Bay fusion lovers, and the band returned to San Jose the following February for Winter Fest. The quartet continued to spread their message of musical freedom in San Francisco, performing a tribute to the Muscle Shoals Sound at SFJazz, which earned them a standing ovation and a newfound fanbase.
Last March, Mino Yanci traveled to Austin to perform at SXSW, and they continued to set their sights eastward. They recently returned from a brief New York tour with SOL Development, and promise to continue enchanting audiences in California and beyond.
