Shotgun Wedding Quintet

Programmed by KALX
RE@DS: Franck André Jamme 5:30 PM
KALX DJ Citizen Zain 6:30 PM
The Shotgun Wedding Quintet has worked to create an illicit blend of hip-hop and jazz that is rooted in tradition, but looks ever forward. Each member of the band is a multi-instrumentalist, shifting from instrument to instrument, building continuous layers of music and rhythm. As a result, this four-piece ensemble creates the sound of a larger group that is equal parts big band and boom-bap, paying homage to the art of improvisation. This performance concludes KALX’s fiftieth-anniversary concert series.
We recommend taking public transportation to this event. Parking will be in short supply due to a Friday night Cal football game at Memorial Stadium.
