Saturday Night Live Music by Kuckaw
December 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This Saturday join us at Abbott Square Market in welcoming a Bay Area favorite, Kuckaw, to Santa Cruz! Bring your friends and family for amazing food, drinks, dessert, and of course, dancing!
Feeling a tinge of envy towards the traditional “organ trio” format of B3 organ, guitar, and drums, Oakland bassist staple Adam Lowdermilk decided to take action and form his own version of the formation. There was no question who to call: Left hand key-bass master Kevin Wong (Jazz Mafia) as a tag team partner for the low end, and gospel chops whizz James Small (Fantastic Negrito) as the final piece of the puzzle. Rooted in Jazz, Boogaloo, and Soul, the three Bay Area rising stars no doubt bring the Funk, whilst maintaining a wide dynamic range and musical sensitivity not often associated with the high energy, power trio aesthetic. One thing’s for sure, these three have a blast playing together, and it truly comes through in their performance.
