Ideateam
Ideateam
Ideateam is a 10-piece ensemble driven to fuse influences together in a fresh way. Loaded with two guitars, bass, drums, percussion, brass section, and soulful vocals, the group explores the corridors of groove while flipping through styles like a deck of cards, flowing in and around various genres and noticeably leaning on the funk. They bring sounds old and new, blended with a drop or two of extraterrestrial soundscapes - presented by a group of people who simply love to play music. Ideateam has shared the stage with several festival / tour circuit favorites (Karl Densen, Orgone, Polyrhythmics, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Monophonics, Rubblebucket...) and has been honored to open for legends such as Bernard Purdie and The Headhunters. Ideateam’s debut album '&?!' (And What Now) landed in 2014 and contains original instrumental groove fusion. Their second full-length album 'Moving Still' hit October 2016. Ideateam’s third album, Kinetic, is being released Spring/Summer of 2018 and being toured all across the US.
Midtown Social
Midtown Social
It’s time to stretch, hydrate, and double-knot your dancing shoes, because San Francisco’s favorite soul party band, Midtown Social, is back with their first full-length release. Their freshly squeezed blend of California soul, funk, and rock is downright irresistible. Midtown Social is a nine-piece tour-de- force. But it’s more than just a band. Together, these nine musicians are a collaborative community of writers, arrangers and artists. When they’re on stage, they invite you into the family. The mission is to spread the message of positive social change through art and music. MTS serves up food for hungry souls—fuel for a revolution of free, open and creative thought. Deeply inspiring and guaranteed to make you sweat just as much as it makes you think, Midtown Social presents a message of solidarity and hope, voiced by a community of people who are as diverse, bold, authentic, and vulnerable as the community in which they were forged. Midtown Social asks us all to come together, to find common ground, love and camaraderie, to fight for our communities, way of life, and rights—and to stand together as one.
Joe Kye
Joe Kye
Born in Korea and raised in Seattle, violinist- looper and vocalist Joe Kye has drawn rave reviews since launching his music career in 2013, “discharging world[s] of emotion” and delivering “divine messages” with his lush string loops and eclectic style (Guitar World). Drawing upon his migrant upbringing, Kye blends indie-rock, jazz, classical, pop, and world folk to create a unique sound that “leaves everyone in awe” (Sac News and Review). With his innovative use of digital effects and looping, Kye weaves together diverse textures, catchy melodies, and rich, sweet vocals to create songs that groove, uplift, and empower listeners: "A single violinist...one mesmerizing symphony" (Sacramento Bee).
