ON THE SPOT TRIO

On the spot (ots) trio started in 2006 as “a fiercely funky threesome of musicians from santa cruz, ca, determined to take decisive action in espousing the doctrine of soul jazz dance parties across the land. ” their inspiration is rooted in 1970’s soul jazz and funk, which has been steeped in a millennial soup of rock, jazz, afro beat, and improvisational groove. Alan evans—producer and drummer of soulive—produced and appeared on ots trio’s debut album, straight out the garden (2010), and forged a creative bond with ots during these sessions, which resulted in the suction 45rpm (coalmine records, 2012) and shag (2014). In a twist of fate, when evans formed his solo project, the alan evans trio, ots guitarist danny mayer was asked if he wanted to join… join he did, leaving santa cruz for the berkshires, and organist / keyboardist kris yunker followed shortly afterwards, when the alan evans trio became the rock organ trio playonbrother. As evans shifted his focus back to soulive at the end of 2014, mayer and yunker—now both in new england—reformed on the spot trio, fusing their boogaloo and soul jazz roots with a more modern, hard hitting jam band vibe. Now, with a revolving cast of drummers including michaelangelo carubba (turkuaz) and evans himself, on the spot trio will be establishing a base in the northeast and mid-atlantic regions of the u. S. As they slowly work their way back west. Prior to the band’s hiatus, they had begun to establish a bit of a following in california, with monthly residencies at such renowned venues as the boom boom room in san francisco and the crepe place in santa cruz, as well as regular touring up-and-down the pacific coast and into colorado. East coast hits surrounded festivals, such as catskill chill music festival, and paved the way for future touring. Ots trio have appeared and performed with dj logic, monophonics, wil blades, 7 come 11, teddy presberg quartet, boca de rio, juno what?!, big sam’s funky nation, orgone, particle, ivan neville’s dumpstaphunk and many more, as well as innumerable individual members of some of these great bands. 21+ $5

SOULE MONDE

Soule monde is instrumental, organ-driven funk in its purest form. Erupting from the syncopated minds of power-drummer russ lawton and organ-wizard ray paczkowski, the duo take soul-jazz back to the deep end. Forged off a sound that originated with booker t. And jimmy smith, yet highly influenced by the redeveloped grooves crafted by medeski, martin & wood and the beastie boys, soule monde is the ideal union of swagger and raw talent. Over a decade of touring together as members of the trey anastasio band has fervently cemented these two into an indestructible pocket, and bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by near-telepathic response from the other. These strut-worthy rhythms are further accentuated by a passionate longing for melodic story arcs. So while their songs will make your ass shake like a jello plate on the san andreas fault, they will also take you on a narrative journey of harmonic exploration. 21+ $5

Big Bang Bhangra Brass Band

Under the direction of noted vermont musician and band leader, brian boyes, the big bang bhangra brass band is one huge party that combines the rich musical and dance roots of indian bhangra, bollywood, new orleans brass bands, and the 1930′s jungle swing of duke ellington and cab calloway. From call and response singing to ripping horn solos, big bang brass fuses the deep funk and swing grooves of new orleans with the centuries-old punjabi bhangra grooves and dance moves reaching back 500 years. The result: a wild and colorful explosion of musical crossroads guaranteed to stir the soul, body, and mind. Topped off with a troupe of bhangra dancers, big bang brass features some of vermont’s best funk and jazz players from such favorites as movement of the people, the saturn people’s sound collective, viperhouse, 35th parallel, money jungle, and d’moja
