Sacto Storrytellers,
Crossing the River
Roots/ Reggae/Ska
Alternative Soul/Hip-Rock
Indie Funk Jazz,
   The Sacto Storytellers are a collective of Sacramento’s roots, reggae, and ska musicians. Each live performance generates a buzz among audiences, entrancing them with jazzy trumpet verses, strong rhythm, and groovy bass lines.
       If you are looking to hear more of Sacto Storytellers music you can pick up a CD at one of their live performances or check them out on the web:

   I'm a unicorn from mars and I write songs about life and stuff. James Brown is the godfather of soul. Michael Jackson is the prince of pop. I am the kid sister of Rock N' Roll and the Queen of Interstellar Beats.
   "She reminds me of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's if they knew how to get hyphy."

   Miraculously, people kind of found each other in the midst of this big cacophonous music metropolis where we laugh at 100 degree heat and love lurking under great freeways that haven't been upgraded since the Johnson Administration. (Come to think of it, the levees haven't been upgraded since the Johnson Administration either, ugh.)
   Intoxicating Grooves & Compelling Improvisation -- be prepared to dance your butts off to grooves from the African diaspora. Where there's a rhythm there's a way.

City of Trees Brass Band
Funk - Jazz - Rock - Reggae
New Orleans Jazz
    Groove masters The Bumptet bring reckless sophistication to each performance with an improvisational, genre-bending approach to music. Their compositions range in style and complexity, moving from deep funk grooves to epic rock crescendos to intricate, fusion-esque lines and back againwith improvisation, forward motion, and an in-the-moment attitude as the only constants.
    Self-described as The Headhunters meets Phish, this Northern California quintet takes listeners on a spirited journey that must be seen live in order to fully appreciate the level of musicianship and soul they bring to every show they play. But dont expect to hear carbon copy renditions of their tunes on stage. They pride themselves on delivering high energy, improvised sets of funk music with jazz caliber execution (including the occasional foray into the jam band outer stratosphere!).
    Jonathan Stoyanoff bass, Barry Eldridge drums, Arlyn Anderson guitar, Andre Fylling keys, Jason Galbraith saxes
   “While Certainly influenced by purveyors of the New Orleans second-line style of Jazz, City of Trees also cites less traditional acts like the Youngblood Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble as sources of inspiration- groups from the Midwest that merge brassy jazz with hip-hop. gypsy rock and even punk. The result is an expectedly funky, yet unexpectedly contemporary party, with as many as 12 musicians grooving on trumpet, saxaphone, trombone, sousaphone, and percussion instruments.”
