Monday, February 22, 2016
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Blair Nishio, lead vocalist and 24-year-old vocal jazz major, currently sings for White Skies and Iridium, a ska band at SF State. “It’s a great balance for me,” Nishio said. “It’s all about having fun with both, so it’s a good mixture for me.” Adam Medina, a 21-year-old classical guitar major, lives next door to Geneko, and they have been friends for the past three years. Mike Kelly, a 24-year-old Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts major and drummer for the band, first met Geneko in class and was soon invited to play. “I love how all of us come from different music backgrounds,” said Nicholas, who plays bass. “And what it is awesome is that all our different influences come together to make the White Skies sound.”
