I'm Back!

Things have been beyond busy since I've returned from my half country tour. I was immediately contacted by the Iron Horse Entertainment Group to Open for Grammy winner Luther Guitar Jr. Johnson's last performance at the Horse and then again in June for multi award winning Joe Louis Walker! Both my favorites and I saw them both displayed nicely in the Blues Hall of Fame in Memphis. This summer I will be doing a lot of solo gigs as well as with my full band and with the Tom Petty Tribute band, we're getting tightly booked for a full summer of music. I have also started to record my newest solo album at ROBO Sounds Studio and I must say it's coming along nicely so hopefully I can get this finished before the end of summer when I leave for a tour of the Great Lakes region. Hope to see you out there this summer!

On The Road

Hello from the 2017 road tour! I've been having a ball playing music across the country with all sorts of amazing players in some of the most outstanding venues. I've hit S.Carolina, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, now I'm off to Memphis and Nashville then home. Hit me up on facebook and lets get together out here on the road!!

New Year New Music

It's been an exciting beginning to this new year already getting to Open for the second time at the Iron Horse for Joe Louis Walker on Jan 1st then getting to sing with him as well. Now I'll be opening for Popa Chubby March 12th at the Iron Horse and ticket sales are doing really well. This beginning to the year just couldn't be any better but it is because I have a lot of new music coming and I am going to start working with David Bartley one of the areas best keyboard players on my new project along with some other very talented musicians. I couldn't be happier or more excited about this new year!!!!!! Thank you all for your continued support!

Time to end

It is with great sadness that I have to say Eva Cappelli and The Watershops Band has come to a close. It was a great 7 years of wonderful music and there will be more from Eva Cappelli as she puts together a new band and hit's the road for a 2016 tour. Eva Cappelli will be Opening for the Legendary Luther Guitar Johnson on July 25,2015 at the Iron Horse in Northampton MA so look out for her brand new blues band that is in progress right now!! Exciting times are ahead and lots of warm wonderful memories from the past. The music will always remain and so will the friendships but it's time for new beginnings with the new growth of spring 2015!!!! Please go to evacappelli.com for any and all new info on what's happening and thanks so much for all the loyalty and love!!! Bye for now Eva Cappelli.....

Eva Cappelli Summer of 2013

The summer of 2013 for Eva Cappelli has so far been spectacular. Everyone is saying this is her year and so far it seems to be coming true. The last few years were not so kind to our singer songstress between a bad divorce, horrible soul sucking jobs and bosses and court battles that went way to far to prove that our court systems are badly broken. Ultimately Eva has rebounded once again like the cool terminator she is with a fierce fire in her soul that took her music to yet another level just when you thought it couldn't get any better. She has had the summer of her dreams starting in the spring with playing the Montauk Music Festival in Montauk N.Y. with the infamous Tali Icepack Jackson on drums who has played with all the greats. Then her summer gig schedule exploded with festivals and club dates all over. Eva has been playing up and down the Valley steadily all summer and it doesn't seem to be over yet. Here is what she's been up to!

Some of the latest and greatest news on the Watershops Front: Eva has had a very busy summer and it's not over. Her new CD should be coming out in late fall before the holidays hopefully! She and Joe Carvalho have been hard at work on this one. Eva has revisited some of her older material that her fans love and have been waiting patiently for. This new album is sure to be the very best she and Joe have done together.

ANOTHER OPEN MIC?? Yes that's right Eva Cappelli is now running the Open Mic at Opa Opa Steakhouse and Brewery 169 College Highway Southampton MA. and it has been going like gangbusters! Everyone is coming out for this one. Eva currently runs the long standing and very successful Open Mic at Sam's Cafe 235 Main St. Northampton MA every Friday night. Earlier this year she started a very unusual Un-Plugged Open Mic through Westfield University's Downtown Art Gallery 105 Elm St. Westfield MA.where she combines the beautiful blending of the spoken word, poetry, storytelling and singer songwriter styling inside a most visually stimulating atmosphere in this quaint and beautiful little art gallery. Sitting in a circle inside the window where the natural acoustics are beautifully balanced. Some call this Open Mic Eva's Music Therapy Class. The public is welcome to join in too.

Eva is currently running a radio show called the Toast and Jam Cafe with Eva Cappelli on Valley Free Radio WXOJ 103.3 FM or on line at valleyfreeradio.org every Friday from 12 NOON to 1:PM. You'll find her interviewing some of the Valley's best musicians and having them play live right in the studio. Eva has always been a big supporter of helping other artists find their way through the musical jungle and this is just another platform for her to be able to continue to offer her help.

The newest and most exciting news Watershops recording artist Eva Cappelli has just been invited into the New England Songwriters Collaborative. She will be performing at the Women's Expo on October 6th at the Twin River Casio in Lincoln RI. More to come on that front!

Watch out for Eva Cappelli she's moving on up!!!!!
