Captiva
Captiva
Captiva is an alternative rock band hailing from Kansas City, Missouri. The band is comprised of JJ Ries (vocals, guitar), Pat McQuaid (guitar, vocals), Nick Riffle (bass), and Hank Wiedel (drums). Captiva formed in October 2013, during a high school detention sentence.

Captiva first started gaining attention on college campuses around the Midwest, while they were still students themselves. For the last two years, the band has been circuiting small clubs across the region and opening for other national touring acts. Captiva has played on numerous festival stages such as Backwoods Music Festival, Fashion Meets Music Festival, SXSW, Boulevardia, Audiofeed Festival and Middle of the Map Fest. In 2015, the began gaining strong momentum, securing college radio-play across the country, and opening for major acts such as Twenty One Pilots (Starlight Theatre), The Expendables (2016 Winter Tour), and The Lonely Biscuits (recordBar).


After entering college in 2014, Captiva partnered with Tim Gutschenritter (National Fire Theory) and producer Jeremy Wilson (Temple Sounds) to record and release their debut self-titled EP which includes their singles “Road to Ruin” and “Chemicals”. The self-titled EP has a more mature and honest sound, while still staying true to their playful and inviting personalities. With high remarks from national/international press, including Consequence of Sound and Live For Live Music, the EP lifted the group to new heights, earning them major attention in the US and overseas. The band has plans to tour extensively around the release of the EP during 2016, including a number of dates on The Expendables' Winter Blackout Tour, and will return to the studio in the spring to begin recording their first full-length debut album.
