Juli Crockett of The EvangenitalsHello my eyes, I must apologize
For all my fears
Though I was blind, you saw so clear
~ Hello, The Evangenitals

One of Fairfield's favorite drummers, David Hurlin, has been living in LA and playing with the alt-country, love drunk, hillybilly rock, freak-folk revolution band known as The Evangenitals for some time now. Band leader and main songwriter Juli Crockett is a fountain of inspiration, energy and creativity with multiple degrees and titles - a BFA in Theater, an MFA in directing, and she's working on a PhD in Philosophy. She's an ordained minister of the ULC and a retired, undefeated professional boxer! What kind of music would come from such varied life experience? One of my favorite descriptions on the band website is: "The jukebox at the Mad Hatter’s tea party."

The band's current project is a musical called Dawn of Quixote: Chapter the First. Written and directed by Juli, the philosophical and musical exploration of the first chapter of Don Quixote features a live original score performed by The Evangenitals. They have been invited to perform at the prestigious Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland this August!
