Ultraviolet Hippopotamus is an explosive five-piece progressive improvisational band with a rapidly growing fan base across the U.S. and, more recently, Europe. Described as “brightening the future of the jam band scene,” Ultraviolet Hippopotamus mixes tight, funky jams with new dance beats, heartfelt lyrics, compelling composition, eccentric effects and a vibrant light show for an incredible, one-of-a-kind musical experience. Known for its on-stage musical alchemy – cultivated from years of relentless touring – the band performs an eclectic selection of technically demanding compositions and improvised material along with unconventional and fun covers.
The group deftly journeys between funk, jazz, livetronica, space rock, reggae, bluegrass, and progressive rock within a single show and, sometimes, within a single song. Exploring new ground and taking risks make every performance unique, and fans are never sure what exactly the band will deliver each night; other than exceptional music.
S.P.O.R.E. (Spontaneous.Progression.Of.Recurring.Energy.) is a high energy 4 piece Livetronica Jam Band out of Jacksonville, FL. S.P.O.R.E. creates and fuzes a unique medley of Rock, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop, and Dancy Electronic jams featuring all live instrumentation into a psychedelic composition similar to the styles of acts such as Pink Floyd, STS9, Dumpstaphunk, Lotus, and Eoto. Since formation in early 2012 S.P.O.R.E. has worked relentlessly to build an outstanding resume and fanbase. In the first year S.P.O.R.E. has established a reputation of treating each show just as important as their largest of performances.
