Jazz never stands still…it constantly evolves and reinvents itself. See this phenomena in action every 2nd and 4th Friday at Bank of America Plaza from April through October. Angel City Jazz, a non-profit committed to cultivating jazz culture in LA through its annual Angel City Jazz Festival, has partnered with Arts Brookfield to program this series. Spend your lunchtime enjoying live music from local musicians while you snack on goodies from the Bunker Hill Farmers Market!
Performing on May 12th is Similar Fashion, an avant-rollercoaster-jazz-n-roll band from Los Angeles. Led by saxophonist Logan Hone, Similar Fashion features Lauren Baba (viola), Gregory Uhlmann (guitar), & Jesse Quebbeman-Turley (drums). The band combines Logan’s kinetic compositions with intense and joyous singing, interlocking grooves, and dancing.
Their debut album, Logan Hone’s Similar Fashion, was released in 2015 on pfMentum and was described by LA Weekly as “…a mostly irreverent romp full of chaotic sounds.” Downtown Music Gallery called it a “breath of fresh air” that “certainly does feel good.”
Similar Fashion toured twice in 2016 and has performed and presented lectures at Cry and Roar 6, University of Utah, University of Reno, Snow College, College of Southern Idaho, Berkeley Arts Festival, The Blue Whale, Open Gate Concert Series, MorYork, and more.
“boldness, irreverence and humor enough.” — All About Jazz
“The band sounds like they are getting ready to be the soundtrack for an animation film festival, or at least a Warner Brothers Saturday morning matinee.” — Jazz Weekly
