Humandala

Humandala explores the synchronizations, geometry and interconnectedness of the human experience. Blending the synthetic with the organic, the traditional with the undiscovered, and the darkness with the light. Humandala captures in music the expereinces that connect us all. Part dub, part rock, part funk, part electronica, Humandala provides a solid foundation for people to dance and express themselves freely.

Humandala consists of Chris Simmens, Austin Mooney and Joe Effington, three cheerful lads who love nothing more than sharing in a fat groove. Combining his skills on bass with his knowledge of Ableton live, Chris Simmens formed the bands Skeleton in 2013. After meeting Joe Effington in 2014 and finding a majestic musical chemistry, the two knew that this music deserved it’s own rhythm. Recruiting Austin Mooney from across the country, Humandala breathed it’s first breath of life. Providing solid groove as well as the flavors of jazz and hip-hop, Austin anchors the band in it’s ability to explore many genres. They draw on influences such as Phish, Papadosio, Lotus, Rush, Pink Floyd, Steel Pulse, Dopapod, Shpongle, Disco Biscuits, Yes, Snarky Puppy, Jimkata and Theivery Corporation. Honoring all forms of eclectic music, Humandala plants it’s foot in the steps of it’s inspiration, while blazing a path of their own.

 YAM YAM

When a new band catches the attention of a large music scene as quickly as this one has it is never something to be taken lightly. Yam Yam is a project that has only existed for just over a year, but in that time they have blazed a trail of extremely rowdy shows all of which have turned into funked out dance parties. The sound of Yam Yam is one the likes of, Medeski Martin & Wood, Vulfpeck and Badbadnotgood. You can expect their set to be a delicious mix of extremely funky improvisation, fast paced rhythmic Latin grooves, and covers ranging from Michael Jackson to Outkast.

Progressive latin and jazz improvization guarenteed to set you back a few knotches.

Let your mind go and the soul/funk will follow.
