About Forq: https://forqmusic.com
Forq is an instrumental quartet with a dynamic sound and a penchant for sonic exploration. The group is composed of world-class improvisers, but it is their unusually memorable, genre-blending songs that leave the most lasting impression. Seven of these songs make up their third album Thrēq (pronounced “threek”), which was released in late 2017. Originally founded by keyboardist Henry Hey (David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Jeff “Tain” Watts) and bassist Michael League (Grammy-winning leader of Snarky Puppy), Forq is now joined by guitarist Chris McQueen (Snarky Puppy, Bokanté), drummer Jason “JT” Thomas (Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Marcus Miller, D’Angelo) and bassist Kevin Scott (Wayne Krantz, Jimmy Herring, Col. Bruce Hampton). They have toured across the US, Europe, China, Australia and performed at international festivals including the North Sea Jazz festival, Jazz A’ Vienne, Udine Jazz Festival, Upstream Festival, Wangaratta Jazz & Blues festival in Australia, and the GroundUP Festival in Miami Beach.

About The Funky Knuckles: https://www.thefunkyknuckles.com/
The Funky Knuckles is a world class jazz orchestra made up of genetically enhanced cybernetic supermen. Their mind blowing rhythms and harmonic complexity will shatter your fragile psyche and leave you drowning in a pool of fresh llama milk. The band members are as brilliant as they are handsome and have been seen as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, Larry Carlton, and many others. Recent albums have reached #1 on the iTunes Jazz charts, and they will be releasing their 4th album entitled Delicious in June 2019. The Oracle has foretold that Delicious will revolutionize music for generations to come. This unstoppable crime fighting squadron will make you dance like a kraken on meth before you burst into tears of joy which can be combined with powder from a ground up cobra skull to synthesize the elixir you need to pass through solid objects.

About Wednesday Night Titans: https://www.wednesdaynighttitans.com/
Wednesday Night Titans is the brianchild of genius polymaths (bassist) Kevin Scott and (drummer) Zach Danziger. This is an all-star-wrestling themed onslaught of virtuosic musical madness and crafty yet insane video. This is must-see art and groove.

On her sophomore LP, The Best of Luck Club, 26-year-old Alex Lahey navigates the pangs of generational ennui with the pint half-full and a spot cleared on the bar stool next to her. Self-doubt, burn out, break-ups, mental health, moving in with her girlfriend, vibrators: The Best of Luck Club showcases the universal language of Lahey’s sharp songwriting, her propensity for taking the minute details of the personal and flipping it public through anthemic pop-punk.

Lahey’s 2017 debut I Love You Like a Brother encases Lahey’s knack for writing a killer hook and her acute sense of humor delivered via a slacker-rock package — and, in a way, The Best of Luck Club picks up where that record left off but sprinting forward. Lahey dives headfirst into a broader spectrum of both emotion and sound through polished, arena pop-punk in the vein of Paramore with the introspective sheen of Alvvays or Tegan & Sara. Here, Lahey documents “the highest highs and the lowest lows” of her life to date.

The first inklings of The Best of Luck Club came together on a shitty guitar while Lahey spent the bulk of her time on the road. The break-out success of I Love You Like a Brother took her beyond the adoration of Australia to her first taste of global touring; festival slots at the likes of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Osheaga; and her American TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Amidst the frenzy, Lahey found the time to tinker with her thoughts, eventually landing in Nashville for intensive songwriting sessions. Lahey would lock herself in a room for 12-hour days and ended up churning out more than half the songs for the record. Most importantly, Lahey found The Best of Luck Club thesis while she was there — which explains the familiarity and relatability through Lahey’s new LP.

“When I was writing all the stuff in Nashville I was really inspired by the dive bar scene there and the idea that at these dive bars there’s no pretentious energy,” she explains. “Whether you’ve had the best day of your life or the worst day of your life, you can just sit up at the bar and turn to the person next to you – who has no idea who you are – and have a chat. And the response that you generally get at the end of the conversation is, ‘Best of luck,’ so The Best of Luck Club is that place.”

Electrik Ants:

Imagine if Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Lettuce all hopped in a rocket ship. The result wouldn’t be far from the Ants’ vibe. The Dallas-based septet combines sax, DJ, drums, bass, and three members who rotate between rapping, singing, guitar, keys, synth, and percussion. Hold on to your butts.

Chilldren of Indigo:

Funky… soulful… psychedelic… head-banging… hip-hop? With influences that vary from Black Sabbath to Kendrick Lamar, Chilldren of Indigo are a hard band to sum up and even harder to miss. The Dallas natives are currently working on their 4th studio album after finishing a multi-state summer tour.

Able Delilah:

Able Delilah is an Arlington-based soul/funk/hip-hop fusion band consisting of Texas natives Kane Vinson, Samson Robinson, and Drake Fanning. Kane and Samson have been writing together since 2012, having explored multiple projects together before establishing Able Delilah in 2017.

Sonic Buffalo:

If Zeus had sex with Aphrodite and Achilles recorded it, it would sound like shit. Sonic Buffalo is the love child of Scientology and that cult that died in that fire? Waco? That’s Sonic Buffalo. Come hard. Stay harder.

Kyle Hollingsworth (of String Cheese Incident) ‑ Dallas, TX atDeep Ellum Art Company Dallas, Texas

Deep Ellum Art Company Presents:

Kyle Hollingsworth

(Keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident)
[rock | jam | bluegrass]

Tickets on Sale Saturday, July 13th @ 10am

ROOTS RUN DEEP!

About Kyle:
30 years ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Since then, with a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent, with the ability to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres.

Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that I’ve learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.”

While his versatility and quick-study nature have become his signature skills with SCI, they have also proved tremendously helpful on stage during collaborations with a bunch of major acts, including Paul Simon, Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Little Feat, and banjo master Bela Fleck. One summer he toured with Phil Lesh in a band that also included Steve Kimock, John Molo, and Warren Haynes. In the summer of 2008 he spent the summer touring with the “mickey hart band”.This group featured Mickey Hart,George Porter,steve kimock and many others .In another amazing highlight, Kyle also toured with Mike Clark in a band that starred nearly all the original Head Hunters.

These gigs prove that Hollingsworth is as unafraid to step out of the limelight as he is to step into it. “When I play with these performers it’s about showcasing them, to support the main role in the best possible way. Seasoned musicians can be tasty and laid back, too!” Kyle’s first solo album release in 2004 reflected his jazz tastes. Titled Never Odd or Even, Joshua Redman and Robert Randolph guested, among others. Never or Odd or Even was the recording Hollingsworth had always wanted to make since he was a kid. In addition to his jazz influences, the album’s music demonstrates Kyle’s ability to seamlessly fuse genres.

His new Summer 09 release, titled “The There’s Now,” finds the musician coming in to his own. With solid song material and a slamming new band, Kyle is making his mark in the new, always-evolving music scene. “Then There’s Now” delivers a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes and seamlessly displays his growth as a musician and as a songwriter. Also look for Kyle on tour with his trio DNA Land this spring throughout the Midwest. DNA Land offers loop based funk and hip hop beats and features Damien Hines (drums) and Dan Schwindt (bass/guitar).
