Show Info

THE HEARD Native peoples from deep within the mesh of yo' boom box speakers, The Heard are a 6-piece instrumental horn-funk explosion. Our "soul" purpose is to educate you on the finer points of pocket. Inspired by breakdancers, brain enhancers, Dirty Bastards, New Masters, a James Brown "Get down!" and yo momma shaking that ass to Tower of Power records in the basement - this is Nu-Funk for the Nu-Millenium. MIKE DILLON BAND Mike Dillon (b. 1965, American) is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980’s as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization. Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with - - on tour, stage or in the studio - - reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility. Artists such as: Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, Polyphonic Spree, Brave Combo, Sex Mob, Galactic, Secret Chief’s 3, Karl Denson, Steven Bernstein, Charlie Hunter, James Singleton, George Porter Jr., Johnny Vidocavich and Bob Schneider.
