Brett's House Party
Bassist Brett McConnell (Fresh Track, Asher Fulero Band, Aniana, formerly of Shafty) has a thing for House Music and that thing finally compelled him to create a "livetronica" band to explore the genre in a live, real-time setting. Gathering synths, electronic drums, and a handful of musicians to play them, he’s put together his eponymous House Party and would love to see you dancing to that familiar electronic heartbeat at their shows! Each show attempts to recreate a typical DJ set from a house producer: the same tempo/BPM for the entire evening, and non-stop tracks. Brett also has one ultimate rule to prevent themselves from the many other livetronica/jamtronica acts out there: no guitars!
TAKIMBA draws form this unique heritage to bring a blend of dance floor heat that crosses genres and continents. With over a decade of experience lighting up dance floors he draws from Downtempo & Dub to Funk & Breaks. Hes known to select and blend cuts from multiple genres to fit the dance floors temperature indoors or out. Whether he's sharing the stage with the funky Fort Knox 5 or the Dubby sounds of Ott, TAKIMBA's signature blend of West Coast Bass beats and pieces of International Electronica keeps your feet moving and spine aligned. When he's not, traveling the globe in search of audio gems he's holding down The Melting Pot Radio Show in Portland, Oregon.
