The Stone Foxes, Blues-Rock Group From San Francisco, Perform Intimate Concert at Soka Performing Arts Center


Aliso Viejo, CA – The Stone Foxes perform a rock show at Soka Performing Arts Center’s intimate Black Box Theatre on Friday, February 2, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults; $16 for students, seniors and active military families; and $14 each for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets online at or by calling 949-480-4ART (4278).

It’s impossible not to feel the dynamic passion of the Stone Foxes and their foot-stomping sound that Entertainment Weekly calls, “Perfect back-to-basics rock.” They have played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, headlined the legendary Fillmore club in their hometown of San Francisco, and supported acts like the Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, and ZZ Top. The band consists of Shannon Koehler (vocals, harmonica, drums), Vince Dewald (vocals, bass, guitar), Ben Andrews (guitar, violin, vocals), Brian Bakalian (drums, bass, guitar, vocals), Elliott Peltzman (keys, vocals), and Spence Koehler (guitar, vocals). Singer-songwriter Felice LaZae of Los Angeles will be the opening act.

In September 2017 the Stone Foxes released their latest album, a five-track EP entitled Visalia. Recorded during time spent living in tents on a friend’s cotton farm, Visalia tunes into the Stone Foxes’s rural sound. The Stone Foxes are creating new sounds with tinges of western darkness, punk, surf, and Americana, but they are strongly tied together by their everlasting rock ’n’ roll core. Lyrics about gentrification, income inequality, romance, and heart surgeries pour out of their stream of consciousness. They chronicle the years of their unification, taking on the issues of their lives and our times. Founded by brothers Shannon and Spence Koehler, the Stone Foxes started back in the Koehlers’ San Francisco State days in the Sunset District.

Felice LaZae’s music has roots in R&B, soul, and rock  ’n’ roll resulting in a unique, dark pop sound. She’s been featured in articles for Noisy and Rolling Stone, and opened for the Killers’ anniversary celebration of their multi-platinum selling album Sam’s Town for which she graced the cover. LaZae’s song, “I Need to Feel,” off her debut EP, Prologue, was featured by HGTV to promote their show, Flip or Flop. Other notable appearances include her feature in the 2015 Grammy promo video sponsored by Ciroc, and performances at ESPN’s Fan Fest Pre-Super Bowl XLIX event and LA Fashion Week’s Art Hearts Fashion Official After Party. Currently, she is working on her next EP with producer Sleep Deez of Black Eyed Peas fame, set to release in early 2018.
