Eight 02

 

Saturday, May 24th at 7:30pm

Come to Brandon Music on Saturday, May 24th to experience Eight 02, performing “some of the freshest contemporary jazz you'll hear all year”, according to Smoothjazz.com.

Eight 02 has a unique sound they call “accessible fusion”, a blending of the best elements of both smooth and fusion jazz. This approach struck a chord with listeners as  Eight 02  hit #5 on the Smoothjazz.com charts in 2013.

In less than 3 years,  Eight 02  has experienced a rapid rise from relative obscurity, to working with fusion icons, Jeff Lorber and Jimmy Haslip. This certainly bodes well for their future as they push to fulfill Brian Soergel's prediction that, "...Eight 02 is destined to become the next big thing in fusion."  The results of  Eight 02's collaboration with Lorber and Haslip will be featured on their newest release due summer of 2014.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Eight 02's sound is that they are a four piece band that both records and performs live without a bass player. Their unusual line-up has definitely contributed to their sound and compositions, combining the crafts of melody and groove while building the musical story from start to finish.

Band members include, founding members of Picture This, Jerome Monachino (guitar) and Peter Engisch (keyboard), and former Kilimanjaro members, Luke Adler (drums and percussion) and Chris Peterman (saxophone and EWI wind synthesizer). The group attributes their success to the influences of Pat Metheny, Jeff Lorber, Chick Corea, Return to Forever, John Scofield and others.

Tickets are $15 with a pre-concert dinner available for $20. Reservations are required for dinner. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 465-4071 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
