GARAJ MAHAL
When you hear your first Garaj Mahal note, leading into an innovative fusion of funky jazz with a tasty world music flare, all other thoughts leave your mind as the music takes you on an unforgettable voyage. Fans return to experience the band again and again because they know they will always hear something new and progressive from four first-class musicians.

Featuring guitar and sitar virtuoso Fareed Haque, world-renowned bass master and educator Kai Eckhardt, Garaj Mahal combines a century of musical experience to create a sound that's always new, freshly infused with a wide spectrum of musical expression, and always smoking hot.

Touring extensively since their formation in 2000, Garaj Mahal continues to earn critical acclaim and a growing fanbase thanks to their ability to deliver serious «shut-up-and-listen» grooves while simultaneously bringing the dance floor alive. Their collective musical experience allows them to constantly push the envelope of composition and improvisation. Garaj Mahal's sound – a convergence of jazz-style improvisation, mystical Middle-Eastern atmospheres, and danceable American funk — attracts music lovers from all parts of the spectrum and creates a profoundly unique experience.

Each band member dedicates every drop of his education, history, and life-long passion for music to their audience every time they step on stage. The band member's virtuosity is no surprise when you look at even a few of the amazing artists they've performed and/or recorded with over the years, including Dizzy Gillespie, John McLaughlin, Sting, Cassandra Wilson, Dave Holland, Bela Fleck, Chick Corea, Steve Smith, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer, Les Claypool, Trey Anastasio, Umphrey's McGee, MMW, Steve Kimock, and Michael Manring. Garaj Mahal's output is the result of years spent honing their musical relationship on the road and following the band’s return from an extended hiatus, Garaj is already accumulating rave reviews around the country.

— SPARE PARTS
Spare Parts is an instrumental trio that pushes well beyond the jazz funk spectrum in which they thrive. This electric rhythm section, driven by vintage keyboards, electric bass and drums, recalls the aesthetics of the analog era through a fresh and modern approach. Spare Parts has several releases out on Ropeadope Records and has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and beyond while becoming a mainstay on the Chicago scene. Known for their hard hitting grooves and collaborations with Chicago’s finest musicians, Spare Parts has won a loyal following over the years. From dark dive bars to elegant jazz clubs, Spare Parts has headlined countless shows and held several successful residencies. They have opened for artists including Victor Wooten, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Vulfpeck, George Porter Jr., The Wailers, Forq, Kneebody, Garaj Mahal, The New Mastersounds, Banyan, Wayne Krantz, Chester Thompson, Alan Evans, Stanton Moore, and many more.

“These guys squeeze more out of keyboards, bass and drums than any trio you’ll find anywhere!”
Russ Davis — Modern Jazz Radio (MOJA)
