McTuff has been one of my favorite Seattle bands for years, and in 2011 I was given the honor of joining as their drummer. In October 2013 we released a new album that I’m incredibly proud of, Volume 3 – The Root.
Hardcoretet formed in 2007 and has since evolved from playing mostly funky contemporary jazz covers to original compositions stamped with an incredibly unique sound. Here are clips from our three albums Hardcoretet, Do It Live, and Experiments in Vibe:
P-Change was a seven-piece funk band comprised of other jazz studies musicians at the University of Washington. We put out two albums in 2006 and 2007 and still play together in various forms. The members of this band have gone on to do great things, except for one who is a warehouse manager, and I’m very proud of what we accomplished together.
