AfroMassive is a new ensemble bringing the masses exciting new music with a mission to turn on your brain and make you get down. Based in Northern California, AfroMassive is a collective of like-minded musicians looking to cultivate something uniquely different in our current diverse music scene.

Rooted in Afrobeat and funk, they bring their own influences to the table;
The improvisational nuances of jazz, elements of electronic music and
hip-hop and other influences from the sounds from around the world. Mixing heavy bass, driving beats, sweet synthesizers and an in-your-face horn section, the end result is a sultry concoction designed to move you body and your mind. Don’t even think about missing your chance to experience this powerful group.



This Portland-based trio evolved from a long-time collaboration between keyboardist Galen Clark and drummer Jesse Brooke. After spending the winter of 2005 abroad studying music, Jesse and Galen returned to Portland and teamed up with bassist Bill Athens. The resulting mix of groove-based improvisation, instrumental funk, and rhythm and blues began to develop as the members continued to write and freelance in projects of various genres in the Pacific Northwest and tour on both coasts.

The trio recorded their first album “The Aqueous” in 2007, following it with the acclaimed “Cave Dweller” in 2009. With the latest release of “I’ll Meet You There Tomorrow” in 2012, it has become apparent that their unique brand of jazz is becoming recognized both for listening and for thumping the floor.

"Recorded off the heels of tours on both coasts, this tightly constructed
disc features concise tunes bursting with melodic and rhythmic ideas,
including hip-hop beats, exotic Brazilian rhythms and a flair for catchy
start-stop arrangements...The trio has embraced the sounds that surround
them and crafted a cohesive, expertly sequenced record that should pack
dance floors and demand careful listening."
