tracking.php?code=IyRV1iH9C7SwORu5IOV1an

It’s a family affair. Live music + DJ equals love.

// SoDabu (DJ set) at 10pm and the in between //

// Holy Hand Grenade at 11PM //
Holy Hand Grenade is a Brooklyn-based, new music collective inspired by world-grooves and memorable melodies…. An explosive, sultry mix of jazz, soul, hip hop and funk.
Lathan Hardy – Alto Sax // Lynn Ligammari – Tenor Sax
David Hassell- Bass // Dave Palazola – Drums

// N/um at 12:30AM //
N/um is a New York based minimal, house & techno influenced trio using string instruments, voices, analog synthesizers and drum machines. Each performance or recording is improvised, with no pre-composed songs, no plan or structure agreed upon. Committing to write a new “suite” with every performance naturally implies risk. Risk inspired by the jazz innovators of the mid to late 20’th century but in a very different style and format.
Jeremy Loucas – drum machines, samples, mixing // Emil Bovbjerg – synths, vocals, ableton // Elias Meister – guitar, bass, ableton

N/UM translates to medicine or supernatural potent energy. The word is used by the !Kung, an indigenous people of Botswana and Namibia, to describe a healing energy used to cure sickness, both mental and physical, in individuals as well as the community as a whole. N/um is a central part of weekly dancing ceremonies, lasting typically from nightfall into dawn, in which the tribe’s members gather to dance for many hours until dancers enter into varying states of trance. As the trance deepens the n/um builds in the stomach, travels up through the spine and eventually explodes in the brain as the healers reach !Kia, the state in which, according to the tribe’s beliefs, a healer can transfer n/um to those in need of healing as well as to the community where it is said to maintain unity and relieve jealousy, greed and lack of gift giving.

// $10 at the door // RSVP for priority entry to Solie at rsvp@denentertainment.com.

THE FLOWDOWN

The Flowdown (Ropeadope Records) is an eclectic jazz-rock-hip-hop-world music group from New York City, USA. And in many ways, the band is a reflection of the urban playground that it calls home. To begin, the members met over a diverse set of scenarios; Adam Ahuja (keys, vocals) and Gavi Grodsky (guitar, vocals) connected online whilst seeking newcomer musicians in the city shortly after moving to the Big Apple; Gavi and Lavondo Thomas (bass, vocals) were musician roommates during a week of cruise-ship entertainment work; Adam and Srikala Kerel Roach (percussion, vocals) befriended another while exploring avenues of spiritual living within New York City. The four all had something in common though: to continually push their musical minds to furthest of reaches.

A band was soon formed, featuring drummer-in-residencies, and “The Flowdown” began performing in New York City in 2009. Major elements of the group’s personality began to emerge: celebration of different cultures, creation of spaces for individuals to fully be “themselves” musically, and the cultivation a dynamic, joyful stage experience. Musically, the band drew from an affinity with instrumental jazz harmony and groovy rhythms, featured shared lead and vocal harmonies in their music, and carried a love for spontaneity and improvisation. Regular performances eventually led towards shows at Blue Note Jazz Club NYC as well as club and festival dates outside of the city. Meanwhile, members’ continually added colors and experiences to the stage, learned from touring in other prominent acts (Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Daisy Jopling, Srikalogy)

In 2011, band released its debut record, “Metamorphosis.” The album caught the attention of the late Bruce Lundvall, music industry veteran and former Blue Note Records President, who became an invaluable mentor and friend to the band, which inspired the group moving forward. Bruce summed up the band as follows: “The Flowdown is a true fusion of jazz, rock, R&B, hip hop and reggae. The band is very exciting live, the writing is impressive and the musicians are at a very high level.”

As the band entered its next writing phase, a deeper sense of collaboration began to guide the creative process. The group’s “Metamorphosis” debut record was mostly formed from pre-composed materials brought in by individual band members, later sprinkled upon or re-shaped by the impacts of the other members. For the new record, band members met weekly at their rehearsal space in Astoria Queens, without any knowledge of what is was they were about to create beforehand. As a result, practically all of the writing and arranging for the next album happened in a fresh, member-collaborative environment, often with all bandmates present simultaneously. “Let’s Try It” emerged as a band mantra to inspire open-mindedness, teamwork, patience, and deeper creative inspiration between members while forming the new music.

The Flowdown is energized in 2016 to be teaming up with Ropeadope Records for its sophomore record release and is honored to work within a family of diverse, musically riveting acts. As much effort as the band has put into writing, recording and mixing its own record, the band is equally as excited to continue blasting the stage with high energy, heartfelt performances for eager audiences of all kinds.

TACUMA BRADLEY’S UNITY BAND

The Unity Band actively cultivates sonic experiments that fuse elements of HIp-Hop, Jazz, Funk, and World musics. Envisioned by Brooklyn native, Tacuma Bradley, the band seeks to render out good vibes and positive energy from anyone and anything within earshot. Their sets are filled with improvs and original compositions which have been further imagined over the space-time continuum; as they continue they’re search for a sound rife with elements of J Dilla, St. Germain, and The Headhunters. Using horns, drums, bass, keys, guitar, and the human voice, they blend rhythm and sound to create a space of openness so we (all people) can communicate on another level. A simpler level. Where a hip shake, or head nod, are signs of immersion into that space. Where you can be yourself with no hesitation. Where a smile can gain you access to all you need in this wondrous life.

JESSE FISCHER

For Brooklyn-based pianist/composer/producer Jesse Fischer, the simplest things are best — a catchy melody, a heartfelt lyric, an irrepressible groove. Known for his warm, soulful touch and singable melodies, Jesse crosses boundaries between jazz, soul, and singer-songwriter genres with his latest offering, Day Dreamer (Ropeadope Records, Sept 25, 2015). Featuring guest appearances from vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles, trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, violinist Zach Brock, and alto saxophonist Godwin Louis, the album is a modern update on 1970’s jazz-funk with influences from Jewish folksong, traditional American music, West African rhythms, gospel, and French impressionist composers.

New York: Akie Bermiss

April 04, 2016 at The Cecil in New York.

tracking.php?code=hbk5q6otbk3f3d7gOMYpnf

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Akie Bermiss is a pianist, composer, and singer living and working in Brooklyn, NY. He is a graduate of Bard College with degree in music composition. While there he also studied American Music (read: tin pan alley, broadway musicals, and jazz) and writing (read: wrote some bad poetry and called it good). To his friends, he is considered a musical snob of the highest order; to his enemies — a musical charlatan of the basest variety. Among other things he is also the author of a children’s book (“I Hate to Be Sick” — out on Scholastic), a lover of science fiction and fantasy novels, a huge fan of cigars, and he takes his bourbon: neat.

Akie Bermiss is a Brooklyn native raised by former-activists in a musical household full of jazz and politics. He began singing in church, moved it to school for a while, and then took it up as a career.

Since graduating from Bard College in 2005, he has moved back to New York City and made a name for himself with his signature sound – a voice that blends R&B, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Funk effortlessly. Akie has unique skills in composing and songwriting, and, not least, great ability to work with and enhance the sounds of other musicians and singers.

He is currently playing with the Brooklyn based FutureSoul band Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, Miri Ben-Ari (the Hip Hop Violinist), Rap sensation Soul Khan, and also working with his own band, the Akie Bermiss Trio.

We can honestly say that this full blood musician brings soul and musicianship of the highest caliber to each one of his projects, plus he is actually quite the comedian…
