My name is Ed Vangelisti. My fiancé, miss Amanda Picart and I make music together. We call ourselves Above Board. We chose this name to challenge ourselves to be the people we want to be. Above Board is a nautical term used for when a ship has nothing to hide. All of its cargo is out in the open. It doesn’t mean the ship is perfect or above reproach, but that the ship and it’s crew hold to a high level of transparency. Nothing to hide, this is who we are… I grew up in Fort Bragg, Ca. I have family here and it seems, no matter how many times I leave, I keep coming back. This is my home. I work at Eggheads Restaurant and maintain a small business fixing surfboards out of my garage.
Amanda came to Fort Bragg about 6 years ago as an intern at Calvary Chapel to serve on the worship team. Though she, like myself, had moved away at times to do various things, she too kept coming back to our little coastal town. She currently works at Starbucks as a shift manager. We serve at Calvary Chapel of Fort Bragg on the worship team, help with the Sunday School program, and do various bible studies outside the church any given week. Our goal with this music is to use it as a platform for Christian ministry. We just played at Jesus Rocks The Redwoods and we are looking forward to next year. We have also been performing at “Pub Night” at the Caspar Community Center, where we have been very well received. Every second Friday of the month, they host an open mic with delicious food, where all proceeds go to benefit the community of Caspar. So there you have it, a glimpse into Above Board. We have an new EP and for any news or upcoming shows please find us on Facebook. Thank you for your time and God Bless. -Above Board
