SHOW KICKS OFF in Florida OCTOBER 1, 2012 at JANNUS LIVE
St. Petersburg, Florida -- The Saint James Band with their Americana folk rock and roots influences, combine intricate finger picking; slide guitar and twangy, hard-driven, electric power chords. They will remind you of Neil Young, they will remind you of Eric Clapton. They will make you think good thoughts and feel good about yourself and your life, which is exactly what frontman /bandleader George Castrinos (vocals/lead guitar) wants this project to do. And it’s that feel good vibe and energy that makes them a natural opener for the dynamic and charismatic Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at Jannus Live.

Packing in venues throughout Texas, Georgia and Ohio, the band seems unstoppable and they’ve kicked it up a notch rolling out with dates that include opening for the iconic Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The band’s success has been largely the result of Castrinos’ stick-to-itiveness and this tour is based on his determination to move the group forward. The current lineup consists of Ethan Yeager (Drums), Curran McDowell (bass). “Every member of this band has a great talent and heart,” explains Castrinos.
Castrinos—who grew up in Florida is excited to be back in his hometown of St. Petersburg, performing on stage with his daughter Jade Castrinos (lead vocalist for Edward Sharpe). Local entrepreneur, restaurateur and businessman Frank Chivas who is hosting a show in Clearwater on September 29, says, “It’s great to see my good friend George and my Goddaughter Jade, reunited, playing on the same stage in their hometown. How amazing is it that a father gets to open for his daughter?”
Castrinos sees Saint James Band as a way to unite people. “I want people to know that there’s a better way to live. Through discipline of your thoughts and actions you can somewhat control your destiny. If our songs can instill hope in people and give them a renewed sense of purpose than I’ve done my job.” The LP Who You Are is available on iTunes.
