Happy Orchestra, produced by drummer Tarik Abouzied, is a band that puts smiles on faces and lights fires under feet. Its members are drawn from some of the Northwest’s most highly regarded jazz, funk, and soul bands including McTuff, Skerik’s Bandalabra, Richie Aldente, and more. The band combines instrumental and compositional firepower with a determined effort at crafting an intensely happy musical experience.

Abouzied was awarded 4Culture’s Arts Project Grant in order to develop, record and perform with Happy Orchestra. The band was conceived from his gratitude and experiences as an established musical force in the Northwest: “The level of talent here is astounding, the community that supports this music scene is as strong as I’ve ever seen, and contributing to that has been incredibly life affirming. … I want more, and so Happy Orchestra is born.”

Richie Aldente front man Tim Kennedy and bassist Ian Sheridan fuse effortlessly with McTuff guitarist Andy Coe and drummer Tarik Abouzied, who both “possess Olympian skills on their instruments…” (The Stranger) to create an unshakeable foundation built from years of camaraderie and virtuosic musicianship. This combination of stellar human beings, instrumental mastery, and a grin-inducing compositional palette is what makes Happy Orchestra an unmissable act.

Galen Clark (Trio Subtonic) + Damian Erskine + Tarik Abouzied open the evening.
