Dylan Jakobsen Band
(bass, vocals)

Dylan Jakobsen is becoming a household name across America. He’s traveled the country more than most would in a lifetime and performed at countless festivals, fairs and clubs in front of few, to thousands and everything in between. Having opened for some of today’s biggest country music staples at the youthful age of 23, Jakobsen has garnered attention throughout the scene from country music diehards to industry professionals. Rest assured, overnight success isn’t something that Jakobsen is interested in and he’s working night and day to show that. 

Combinator
(bass, vocals, writing, production)

Combinator is a Seattle-based, soulful, funky rock band.

Combinator wants you, and takes what it wants. It will aurally seduce you with its sticky tendrils of funk and soul, pound your chest while spanking your butt with its punishing rock sensibility, and awaken your palette with its savory, worldly flavors. For out of the depths of the murky bog of stank which the forebearers did create many years ago, has crawled Combinator - the harbinger of vice and passion.

Combinator is coming, and there will be no mind, body, or spirit left unmoved.


Aline Vida
(bass)

Embracing life as it unfolds isn’t always an easy feat, yet singer/songwriter Aline Vida does it so effortlessly in song. Her timeless vocals fit alongside contemporaries such as Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, and Jessie Ware. After a three-year break, Vida returns with a hypnotic 5-song stunner entitled Alive. This EP, her long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s And Now, was written and recorded with Vida’s longtime collaborator, drummer Warren Grant, in his Metronome Studios in Middle Village, NY. Here, she delves into a rich palate of R&B, electronic and soul for her most sonically ambitious effort to date.


Mr. Blue
(bass)

Jazz, funk, fusion, blues, reggae and soul for your event, private party, or anywhere you need some good grooves to set the tone.
