Eminence Ensemble is a 6 piece band from Boulder, Colorado who mix funk, electronica, prog/metal/fusion and more into a heady mix of dance floor scorchers. A light designer and extra lights travel with the band to enhance your visuals for the affair.
Yak Attack is a live electronica power trio from Portland Oregon. Founded in 2013, the band has experienced steady growth over the past few years and has been building buzz by touring frequently throughout the Pacific Northwest, California, and the Mountain West. The group’s music is best described as “organic electronica”, using skillful playing, live loops, and tightly constructed songs combined with raw improvisation to build high-energy and uplifting dance music from scratch, where every note is played and recorded live. The band draws on influences from a wide spectrum of electronica, such as house, drum and bass, and breakbeat, along with elements of jam, funk, and jazz. The result is a live show that is musically sophisticated but widely accessible, with a diverse and engaged fanbase that travels to out of town shows and continually returns to see what the band will do in its next live show.
Yak Attack has performed at summer festivals such as Treefort Fest, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Guitarfish, Northwest String Summit, Apple Jam, and Contour Music Festival. The band has also established itself as a strong afterparty band with capacity late night shows following acts such as Phish, String Cheese Incident, and Sound Tribe Sector 9. They have shared the stage with many established or up and coming acts such as Juno What?, TAUK, Turkuaz, The Magic Beans, Break Science, Funk Hunters, YAMN, Fruition, World’s Finest, and Acorn Project. The band continues to ramp up its tour schedule and looks forward to bringing its unique dance party to a venue near you. $10
