Louis Cole Big Band

Sunday, June 26 | Bullen Park | 6pm

“Cole’s sidelong blend of hard funk and soft pop remains delightfully sly and off-kilter.” Pitchfork

One half of the LA duo KNOWER and collaborator with Thundercat, Vulfpeck, and Snarky Puppy, future-sonic-funk drummer and keyboardist Louis Cole is a singer-songwriter and Grammy-winning producer known today as one of the world’s most celebrated musicians. Cole’s sound is a seemingly simple and totally addictive mix of electro-funk missiles shot clearly on refrains and steamy nostalgic strolls.

With a mission “to create deep feelings through music” his comedic YouTube videos aren’t far from the real thing. Viral video favourites like “F It Up” mirror his live big band show experience, featuring LA’s best instrumentalists seen creating hot funk whilst crammed into his modest living room. Louis Cole’s 12-member Big Band follows in similar fashion: weird, wild, and wonderful. This will be a night to remember. Rai Thistlethwayte keyboards, Petter Olofsson bass, Shai Golan saxophone, Doug Mosher saxophone, Henry Solomon saxophone, Zach Ramacier trumpet, Rob Sheppard flute, Vikram Devasthali trombone, Jon Hatamiya trombone, Genevieve Artadi vocals, Isis Giraldo vocals
