    Happy Orchestra

    Funk

    Happy Orchestra, produced by drummer Tarik Abouzied, is an award-winning band that puts smiles on faces and lights fires under feet. Its members are drawn from some of the Northwest’s most highly regarded funk, jazz, and soul bands including McTuff, Skerik’s Bandalabra, Richie Aldente, and more. The band, voted Alternative Jazz Group of the Year by readers of Earshot Jazz, combines instrumental and compositional firepower with a determined effort at crafting an intensely happy musical experience.

    “Smoking-hot music from top-notch talent.” – CityArts Magazine

    Abouzied was awarded a 4Culture Arts Project Grant in order to develop, record, and perform with Happy Orchestra. The band was conceived from his gratitude and experiences as an established musical force in Seattle: “The level of talent in this city is astounding, the community that supports this music scene is as strong as I’ve ever seen, and contributing to that has been incredibly life affirming. … I want more, and so Happy Orchestra is born.” Their debut album, Baba, reached #5 on the KEXP NW Music Chart and was nominated NW Recording of the Year.

    "Rocking soulful horn-powered grooves..." - Abe Beeson, KNKX  88.5FM Seattle

    Funk

    45th St Brass has been delivering their unique brand of funk/soul/brass from coast to coast. Comprised of some of the best section players in the region, individual members have toured and recorded with bands ranging from ODESZA and Macklemore to Roy Hargrove and Clinton Fearon. The band itself has appeared with some of the best dance funk bands around as well as collaborating with a long list of artists as a horn section for hire (most regularly they are the touring horns for the band Jelly Bread out of Reno). You'll be sure to enjoy what the Pacific Northwest Inalnder calls "their own booty-shakin' set full of horns and electrifying vocals."
