March 29, 2012. Jahman Brahman – the music’s not a cheesy as the band’s name sounds – and KinGator will perform at Boone Saloon tonight, Thursday, March 29. The cover charge is $5, and the show starts at 10:00 p.m. Expect a high energy performance and eclectic jams from both bands.
Here’s a bio from the band’s website:
Jahman Brahman is a four-member collaboration originating from Columbus, Ohio in 2005. They currently reside in the mountains of Asheville, NC. The name Jahman Brahman emerged from the band’s goal to achieve ultimate musical cohesion: each instrument a facet of a single greater goal to deliver music from the heart of one. The band strives to leave the listener with thoughts of love, life, and the wonders experienced while being part of an extraordinary musical family.
Shred ‘N’ Flow is how Jahman Brahman describes their unique style, meaning dynamic sound with a wide breadth of influence, but a focus on rich and fluid progressions of energy. Each member’s musical intuition and influences are unique. From Classic Rock to Electronica to Punk to Jazz, elements from many genres are found in the band’s music. As a result the band pioneers new sounds as the coalescence of their diverse styles unfolds into powerful jams and creative compositions.
Providing the low end, Nate “Brother” Brown brings his own style of funked-out and super-fresh bass grooves, which highlight Justin Brown’s full and conscious lyrics. Drummer Rowdy Keelor provides a steady concrete pulse, the heartbeat for Casey Chanatry’s riveting guitar-work.
Based out of Raleigh, KinGator plays original tunes and cover songs. All of the musicians have difference influences and tastes, though Spangler said they all “agree” on two bands: the Grateful Dead and Phish. While the band enjoys improvising, they do not play solely jam band tunes. Spangler said the members also like jazz and “heavier” rock.
“[These different influences] not only balances out our sound but makes it really unique,” Spangler said. “One second you’ll be listening to prog rock, then jazz and then jammy—kind of Soundtribish. We try to make the sounds we like to listen to.”
Here’s a short bio from JamBase:
KinGator infuses melodic overtones and deep transcendent rhythms to transform audiences. Endlessly evolving and experimenting with their music, the band travels through an epic auditory journey. High-energy crowds dance to sounds that vary from jazz-fusion to modern electronic rock. After building a strong following in their hometown of Raleigh, NC they have recently been playing other southeast locations to highly receptive crowds. For these five loyal musicians and friends, this is only the beginning.
