about VINYL...

The infectious music Vinyl is created by the rare sort of band that can meld funk, Latin jazz, dub and reggae without coming across as pale imitators of the style of the moment. Instead, Vinyl can alternately sound like the best live funk, Latin, reggae or dub band you've heard in ages--and occasionally, all at the same time. Instead of going for flash or gimmicks, Vinyl brings it with fierce musicianship and zesty abandon, proving you can have both substance and style. It's an approach that has made the band favorites of the festival circuit, but the best place to experience them is on the dance floor of a hot, sweaty indoor venue.

Originating in the San Francisco Bay Area 16 years ago, Vinyl has become as tight an ensemble as can be found in today's music scene. The players have a keen understanding of each other's musical expression resulting in a cohesive and adventurous sound that offers tasteful improvisation combined with a fortified, rhythmic backbone. Vinyl's instrumentation includes the mighty Hammond organ, piano, guitar, sax, trumpet, flute, harmonica, congas, timbales, bass, and drums. This broad array of sounds enables Vinyl to explore Latin rhythms with authenticity, lay down their unique brand of reggae and dub, and drive it all home with booty-shaking, full-figured funk.

Originally an instrumental band, over the last few years Vinyl has enjoyed having guest vocalists join them frequently, both live and in the studio. The addition of vocals to Vinyl's formidable foundation has presented even more flavors for Vinyl fans to sample. Soul, R&B, hip-hop, reggae,/B>... there's something for everyone.

Vinyl's extensive touring has brought them to all corners of the U.S. and Canada. They have played a multitude of festivals including main-stage slots at the High Sierra Music Festival, Reggae on the River, Oregon Country Fair, Mountain Aire, Jazz Aspen, Berkshire Mountain Music Festival, the All Good Festival and many others. For the last 13 years, Vinyl has played sold-out sunrise sets at New Orleans' legendary Maple Leaf during Jazzfest. In 2001, Vinyl teamed up with Phil Lesh for a jam-packed benefit concert in Petaluma, CA with Vinyl performing as Phil's band. Vinyl received a "Wammie" award for Best International Band from San Francisco's SF Weekly and was voted one of the top 25 bands in the country by a nationwide poll.

Vinyl’s adaptability to different styles and players, illuminates their talents as musicians and growth as a band, and confirms their place as one of the most vital live bands playing today.


*THE HUMIDORS (opens)*

With a debut album scheduled for release this summer, The Humidors are gearing up for a big year. Whether they're playing hard-hitting funk, vintage R&B, greasy slow-burn soul, or up-tempo rock, this party ensemble is fully committed to the groove in all its shapes and forms. The band's musical fellowship began in 2010 when like-minded Bay Area musicians were brought together over a mutual love and passion for classic funk and soul. Taking their cues equally from ensembles such as Tower of Power, The J.B.s, The Headhunters, War, Santana, and other bearers of the groove torch, The Humidors won't rest until they have everyone on the dance floor bouncing.

This experienced band of troubadours is grounded in a foundation of chugging drums, bass guitar, and percussion, upon which guitar, organ/keys, and horns build an infectious polyrhythmic stew. Leading it off, vocalist Joe Carter completes the band with his soulful singing and infectious energy. Featuring a diverse catalog of both originals and covers, The Humidors have developed a sound that pulls from a melting pot of vintage and modern influences, and is rooted in a commitment to the amazing power of the Great Group Dynamic. Meaning, when they're all together on stage, don't be surprised if they Funk You To Death!
