Butcher Brown + Resolution 88
Friday 24th May
8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
A double header of live jazz.
Butcher Brown are straight out of the underground. Pulsing from the nerve centre of Jellowstone Studios in Richmond VA, Butcher Brown takes careful note of the history and legacy of jazz and throws caution to the wind with wanton abandon. Garage punk jazz funk on the low end of the dial gives way to delicate and elegant compositions as the band shows off without trying. These are not just players, these are musicians.
Resolution 88 was started in 2012 as an original funk jazz project. Tom O’Grady, the keyboard player and MD, was inspired by Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters and more recent ground-breaking artists such as Kaidi Tatham. Resolution 88’s music is based around the sound of the Fender Rhodes piano, complex changes and heavily syncopated funk / broken beats.
