Asher Fulero Band
Pacific NW musical veteran Asher Fulero has been delivering the goods for 17+ years in an incredibly wide range of stage and studio projects and is known as a consummate Pianist/Keyboardist of the highest order, a prolific and eclectic Composer/Producer, and a creatively inquisitive musical catalyst who inspires those around him.
At long last Asher has crossed the threshold to frontman status, boldly leading an ultra-tight 5-piece ensemble from Portland Oregon that follows through on his potential with an undeniable top-shelf groove and an instantly satisfying sound that blends Funk/Jazz-Fusion, Classic Progressive Rock & Americana with the psychedelic, improvisational bent of the Jam-Band culture.
Asher Fulero Band brings a level of ‘tightness’ usually reserved for much more established projects; led by Fulero’s powerfully impressive keyboard work, the band bobs and weaves through his complex original arrangements as easily as it turns on a dime to rework them into new spaces at a signal from their leader, taking listeners on a familiar-yet-original journey through all the best jam-band territories.
Routinely outplaying bands they’ve been booked beside, Asher Fulero Band’s ‘big room-ready’ sound never fails to get the smiles flowing and the butts moving, leaving audiences shouting for more and heads shaking in disbelief.
DoveDriver is a collaboration between guitarist/producer Teddy Presberg and multi-instrumentalist LeClare Stevenson. Sought after sidemen who use the group to showcase original, experimental songs that mesh funk, soul, and electro rock – a blend of sounds described as “shoegaze jazz.” Shoegaze meaning that the fellas are often gazing down at pedal boards or elaborate synthesizers when not losing themselves in the music. The band grooves hard like a J Dilla beat but melts minds with John Coltrane sheets of sounds via synths and shredding guitars on the top.
Presberg is an award-winning composer who writes for advertising, TV and film, but also produces for other artists he admires. He has released records stateside on Ropeadope Records (DJ Logic, Christian McBride, Snarky Puppy, Charlie Hunter and Medeski, Martin, and Wood) and also internationally with Timewarp Records.
Condition White is a four piece R&B band at its core, exploring jazz, hip hop, & funk elements in the pursuit of deep grooves & a danceable, soulful sound. With lush yet spacious arrangements and energetic, vibrant performances, they bring dance party heat to the main stage or rock house parties at a whisper after the neighbors call the cops (true story.) The band is currently planning their first national tour while recording the follow up to 2013’s Slow Burn EP, and can’t wait to make you move.
