Steez presents another creepfunk christmas party with Pine Travelers and Edd Reynolds of WiscoJazz, live at The Cooperage! 7pm doors. Show 8pm.
STEEZ – Categorization be damned, the Madison-based five piece, STEEZ, consisting of Matt Williams (keyboards/synthesizers/talk box), Steve Neary (guitar and vocals), Alex Roberts (drums), Chris Sell (bass), and Andrzej Benkowski (saxophone, keyboards, vocals) is—in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions —a funk band, a jamband, a fusion band, and a disco-fanged multi-beast.
Churning out their self-described Creepfunk, a high energy, danceable variety of funk uniquely laced with electronic and improvisational sensibilities, STEEZ has garnered a loyal following throughout the Midwest performing at music festivals and to capacity crowds at rapidly growing venues. STEEZ repeatedly receives acclaim for their live performances, which typically include a seamless weaving of thoughtfully composed originals and crowd pleasing covers spanning from Madonna to clever obscurities like Genialistid (Estonia).
PINE TRAVELERS – Pine Travelers are a new force in the American music scene, creating a melting pot of styles and sounds. Live shows can range from folk/Americana-influenced Rock to tight funk grooves, to reverb swelling mayhem.
MAMA SAM AND THE JAM – New Portland based, Psychedelic Folk Pop band, Mama Sam & The Jam lifts vibrations and gives goose bumps. Like Fleetwood Mac meets Mazzy Star, Mama Sam’s catchy melodies and powerful harmonies over trippy guitar and groovy beats leaves listeners feeling high on vibes.
EDD REYNOLDS of WiscoJazz will be dropping Christmas Disco classics on real Vinyl to kick off the night and between bands.
