Afrocop

Genre: Funk , Jazz , Soul

“One of Seattle’s best bands… create a rarefied strain of psychedelic, soulful jazz that exists in that cool, sweet zone where the music of Lonnie Liston Smith, Medeski, Martin + Wood, and Spiritualized at their most abstract intersect.” - The Stranger

Freudian Slurp

Genre: Funk , Fusion , Rock

Freudian Slurp just released their second album in early spring of 2017. The clarinet and saxophone driven compositions inspire images of characters and landscapes, with cinematic build ups that are evocative of car chases and fight scenes.


The album features a cast of Seattle locals, and Californian transplants. The Hughes Brothers, (pioneers with the Mo’Jam Monday house band: Dylan Hughes, electric bass and Ian Hughes, electric guitar) grew up in Seattle, and met their drummer, Kyle Kirkpatrick, in a jazz combo at Shoreline College. They have played with him in various groups for almost a decade.  Saxophone and clarinetist David Dolengewicz, and keyboardist, Travis Fisher, both hail from Southern California and have come to Seattle for the music.  David studied Jazz Arranging at the prestigious North Texas University before moving to Seattle and meeting Ian Hughes through local jam sessions. Travis moved with his band “Cosmopolites” to seek a larger musical market.

“Suave, melodious jazz funk that should appeal to fans of Chick Corea, Grant Green, Donald Byrd, and Ben Sidran.” -Dave Segal with “The Stranger”


“The musicianship and interplay of Freudian Slurp are impeccably tight, as are the arrangements and compositions the band comes through with, but they aren’t so complex and challenging that you can’t just sit back in your chair and bob your head along to their songs” – Northwest Music Scene


(Get it?) shows a new direction for the band from it’s predecessor Edible Complex. After some lineup changes, and years of playing shows and festivals around the Northwest, the group’s sound has battle-hardened. The groove is tighter, the sounds are fuller. Slurp has both embraced a fully instrumental sound, and unleashed their early Grunge influences to create something much less restrained.

Grant Schroff Trio

Genre: Funk , Fusion , Jazz , Soul

Drums, Guitar and Bass from Seattle’s psychedelic funk warriors, The Polyrhythmics

How Now Brown Cow

Genre: Funk , Jazz , Soul

The original brothers of bovinity. 

How Now Brown Cow is Marc Hager (Keys), Brad Schrandt (sax/flute), Donovan Pfeifer (drums) and Dave Kurtiak (bass). With over 2 decades of performing collectively and individually in the Pacific Northwest, How Now Brown Cow blends jazz and funk with elements of world, island, fusion and soul to create a sound that is all their own. "How Now Brown Cow sound like Coltrane playing the theme song to CHiPs, mixing high art with '70s camp. Throw in tasty samples and some cowbell, and, boy, you're cooking up a party. Bowmp chicka bowmp bow." - The Weekly Volcano. Often compared to and influenced by Herbie Hancok, Weather Report, Average White Band, Tower of Power, P-Funk and Weather Report.


 

Mark Hurwitz and Gin Creek

Genre: Blues , Funk , Roots Rock

Mark Hurwitz and Gin Creek are one of the busiest bands in the Puget Sound area, playing regularly at leading clubs and festivals. They are a 2018 nominee for "Best Band" by the Washington Blues Society. Their music spans a variety of blues styles, as well as old school R&B, roots rock, and jazz.  Leader Mark Hurwitz sings and plays piano in the tradition of New Orleans keyboard icons like Doctor John and Professor Longhair, with other influences as far flung as Ray Charles, Tom Waits, and Jerry Lee Lewis. For this show the band will feature two exciting young talents, vocalist Amber Hayes and saxophonist Brandon Marcus Hailey.

Shady Bottom

Genre: Funk , Fusion

In 1969, the first human touched down on the moon.  It was a singular moment in the history of mankind.  At the same time, the face of American music was changing.  Jimi Hendrix was setting the scene on fire and James Brown was in the process of converting the masses from smooth, laid-back soul to hard-driving funk. Countless bands and musicians were left forever changed in their wake.  One thing, however, remained constant–Saturday Night.  People have always needed to shake off the dust of everyday life, and these newly funk-i-fied masses were no different.

Shady Bottom continues this tradition of Saturday night dust shaking, hard grooving, & hip-thrusting from old school house parties and juke joint jam sessions.  Inspired by the sounds and personalities of that threshold era of the late 60s and early 70s, Shady Bottom serves up gritty and gyrating songs for the modern party. If your bottom ain’t shady, it should be.

The Hot McGandhis

Genre: Blues , Funk , Fusion , Jazz

Funky jazz and boogaloo tunes with a touch of swing are the go-to grooves for this group of veteran Seattle players. From Monk to Scofield, Rollins to Moore; The Hot McGandhis provide a unique, fresh review of the most iconic standards while uncovering many lesser-known gems from the 60's to today. Members of the quintet include musicians from such local favorites as Cascadia '10, Shady Bottom, The Charles Street Messengers and Soul Senate.
