Doc Brown Experiment and The Blueprints are performing this weekend at our favorite tavern. The Blue prints are MCT faves, while Doc Brown’s bringing some new tunes to the table.
Doc Brown Experiment consists of a four-piece power-jazz ensemble that combines hard-driven grooves with smooth tones. They’ve been compared to bands like Frank Zappa, Bad Brains and Herbie Hancock.
- Flip on saxophone
- Kirch on drums
- Shawn on Bass
- Max on Guitar
Doc Brown’s description of their band? “Take 2 parts funk, 1 part punk, 3 parts jazz and 1 part hip-hop…mix ingredients with a blender. Let chill for 5 mins then serve in your favorite festive mug….that’s how you make a Doc Brown Experiment.”
During an interview with Warped Mag, they asked DBE how they differed from other bands. Their answer? “DBE is a mixture of almost all genres encompassing 60′s 70′s and early/mid 80′s…nothing new there…where we are different is that we juxtapose styles…e.g. hardcore d-beat into roots dub reggae…or taking jazz standards and turning them into gangsta rap jams…you know…like that.” You can read the rest of the interview from 2012 online at Warped Mag.
ReverbNation offers a few of their tunes, including “Fat Rita”. DBE definitely has some fun funk goin’ on.
The Blueprints kick off Saturday evening’s entertainment, also beginning at 9 p.m. Enjoy their unique sound of blues, rock and R&B. Visit them on ReverbNation where you can hear a few of their songs including “Unchain My Heart”, with its rocky blues sound and guitar. The Blueprints will get your foot tapping in no time.
