THE BAND

We are Pan Dulce - six people who love making music and putting on a great show. We are all bakers in this band, giving us a blend of diverse sounds and styles. Our music is probably best described as “rock,” but with influences from reggae, funk, punk, ska, and blues - a sweet variety. That’s what Pan Dulce is, but you’ll only truly know if you come check us out!


Gabi Bravo

Lead Vocals, Piano, & Melodica
Gabby Bravo
For me, the act of singing embodies emotions from the past and present. I was born in Veracruz, Mexico and lived part of childhood there. I began playing the keyboard when I was thirteenth years old and picked up the melodica, my favorite key instrument, more recently. I’m really inspired to sing and share the love. Speaking spanish and having Mexican roots gives me a lot to work with lyrically and musically. Being part of Pan Dulce is art, and I get to connect with the people watching us play regardless of the language we speak. Bands and singers like, Carla Morrison, Lana Del Rey, and Radiohead are great inspirations to me. Variety comes attached to Pan Dulce. Each of us has a different musical and ethnic background, so we like to include all the Pan. Thank you for all the love.

Alejandro Rayburn

Trombone & Backup Vocals
Alejandro Rayburn
Alejandro began calling himself a musician at a very young age but it wasn't until he picked up the trombone that other people started to agree with him… Over the years his trombone began to develop rich somber melodies as he played with different local Jazz, Ska, and Rock bands. However, it was when he met the members of what would later become the band Pan Dulce that those melodies truly found their home.

Chris Harrison

Guitar, Hand Percussion, & Piano
Random Name
Chris is a student of music in various forms. You might find him playing in a classical performance, or building a stage for a music festival, or mixing tracks for a badass rock group. Pan Dulce allows him to bring together this variety for some sweet sweet shows!

Kito Rayburn

Bass Guitar
Kito Rayburn
I have had the pleasure of playing bass for a few bands that have covered a broad range of styles. Stealing the odd tidbit from each of these experiences, what you hear from my bass playing is a culmination of these gathered musical nuances. I believe I have developed a deep, expressive tone that radiates into the floorboards of any venue we make our way through. I hope you enjoy our music and show Pan Dulce some love by dancing with us at our next show!

Ryan Sills

Drums
Ryan Sills
Ryan has been playing drums for 12 years. He is a mechanical engineer by day, but dreams of rock-stardom by night. He mostly listens to and is influenced by progressive metal. His philosophy is that drums should elevate the overall song, and of course provide a badass riff from time to time. He tries to bring energy to every song, and wants people to get up on their damn feet!
