California-based, Pattern-Seeking Animals, featuring Ted Leonard, Jimmy Keegan, Dave Meros, and John Boegehold, and art-pop trio, Arc Iris, are the latest additions to the festival’s 2022 Easter line-up.  

Both acts had originally been billed to play at the canceled 2020 edition of RoSFest;  “we know the care and enthusiasm for great live music that George Roldan [festival founder and former director] always put into his line-up choices, so it made sense to try and pick up directly from where he left off and rebook bands who should have played at the Sarasota Opera house back in 2020 but lost out due to the pandemic”, says Board of Director member, Octavia Brown, “something already seen when we announced Lobate Scarp earlier this year”.

P-SA’s appearance at RoSFest is set to be just one in a series of live shows planned (and the first since the band got together in 2018) to support the release of their as yet untitled third studio album. It also represents a second festival performance for Jimmy Keegan, already part of the festival line-up as drummer with Robert Berry’s 3.2.

Pattern-Seeking Animals, the California-based prog band featuring Ted Leonard (lead vocals & guitars), Jimmy Keegan (drums & vocals), Dave Meros (bass), and John Boegehold (keyboards), has been around for less than three years but has already released two well-received albums: the eponymous debut album in 2019 and “Prehensile Tales” in 2020, both on Inside Out Music.

As John explains, “Originally P-SA was intended to be a recording project but as the debut album started coming together, we began talking seriously about doing it as a live band”.

“This music would be a challenge for a four-piece band to pull off live,” says drummer, Jimmy Keegan, “so we’ve enlisted two additional multi-talented musicians to cover all the bases”.

They’re as yet-to-be-titled third album is slated for an early 2022 release and will be supported by the band’s first live shows, including an appearance at RoSFest on Sunday, April 17th.

Arc Iris, on the other hand, will be bringing their own very unique flavor to the festival.  Originally the solo project of Jocie Adams, their heavily textured melodies and rhythms will, without doubt, captivate the RoSFest audience. 

Arc Iris, the art-pop trio from Los Angeles, successfully combines story-based songs with dense electronic and orchestral arrangements. The group, which started out as the solo project of Jocie Adams (formerly of The Low Anthem) includes keyboardist, sample artist, and frequent Jon Anderson collaborator, Zach Tenorio-Miller, and drummer, Ray Belli

Arc Iris released its acclaimed self-titled debut in 2014 on ANTI/Bella Union and followed it up in 2016 with “Moon Saloon”, a record that represents a natural progression of the first album’s whimsical explorations and energetic diversity. Produced by the group and mixed by electronic producer David Wrench of FKA Twigs and Jamie xx fame, “Moon Saloon” showcases beat-heavy melodies and textural, groove-riding rhythms. Following the release of their second album, the band toured a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’. The band later went on to release their cover version of the classic 1971 album under the name of “Foggy Lullaby” in 2018, a year which also saw the release of their fourth album, “Icon of Ego”. Shortly before the pandemic, the band premiered its most ambitious project to date, “iTMRW: A Sci-Fi Ballet”.
