The Nth Power Does The Dan
Kick off your high heel sneakers, it’s party time. Relentlessly funky trio The Nth Power channels their goosebump-giving soul through the ubiquitously cool shuffles, slides, and snark of Steely Dan. The band certainly carries enough wattage to handle the Dan’s famously polished complexities, with its members hailing from diverse musical backgrounds including powerhouse drummer Nikki Glaspie (Beyonce, Dumpstaphunk), bassist Nate Edgar (Groovechild, John Brown’s Body), and Nick Cassarino (Jennifer Hartswick Band). Raising the ante for tonight’s musical tour-de-force will be keyboardist and flautist Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band. Derek Trucks Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit), trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Dave Grippo (saxophone) and Brian McNamara So don your favorite fez and dust off that Steely Dan t-shirt, make tonight a wonderful thing.
Brickdrop is high impact blast of up-tempo dance, funk, jazz, r&b with a rock attitude. The music weaves between moments of intricate syncopated melodies, and free flowing fusion grooves reminiscent of the 70’s Herbie Hancock era. It is an equal blend of intentional design and spontaneous artistic creation. Whether you like to party, or listen the music is sure to hit you like a brick.
