High Step Society -

High Step Society is a dance party from another dimension; a high-flying, beat-dropping, big band rocket ship with an ear to the past, and both feet on the gas. This dynamic band is bringing jazz back to the party, where it belongs. The 7-piece band’s mission is to bring people together, to create a celebratory space that transcends the troubles of this world. Capturing the spirit of the Jazz Age and launching a century forward, this band breaks down the divisions between us and replaces them with the irresistible urge to dance together. High stepping is a state of mind, and a movement to be part of. Dress yourself up nice, act classy, and lift your best foot way up to the sky. Hop on the HSS Express and let’s ride this wave together towards better times.

Free Creatures -

Umami Music is When Emily Turner’s voice poured over smooth upright bass blends effortlessly into Marv Ellis’s vocals and beats on MPC, and emit a high energy set full of vintage everything from shlumpin’ dance beats to playfully uplifting lyrics and harmonies. Skyler Squglio on electric guitar is the secret ingredient with his harmonic sauce and upside down left handed shred.

This power trio melts face and is rapidly gaining a following everywhere they go. They survived Quarantine by working on the music and came out firing on all cylinders April 2021. Since then haven’t stopped, performing their 87th and 88th shows in Hawai’i September 2022.

Fresh off a tour in Alaska, the good vibes are all they seek. And destiny has brought them here. For which they are grateful. When they return from Hawai’i, they will embark on a National Tour from PDX to NY , and from NEW ORLEANS back through California and up to PDX. One of the hardest working independent bands out there right now on the west coast, the trio also has a reservoir of unreleased material awaiting their fans, old and new.
