About this Event

ZATCHR

ZATCHR is an Atlanta-based electronic duo that blends live and digital instruments to create relaxing, melodic beats. ZATCHR’s goal is to create music that you can vibe to on a Friday night or listen while you work. Being both passionate musicians and multi-instrumentalists, Ryan Cherry and Scott Zadig have chosen to focus on bringing electric guitar and alto saxophone to the forefront of their project. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Tycho and Odesza, ZATCHR pairs the ethereal nature of atmospheric synths with energetic trap-style percussion to forge their unique sound.

CHRIS BULLOCK

Grammy Award-winning saxophonist/composer Chris Bullock strives to push the boundaries of musical categorization. He can be found performing in many different genres. A product of the Carolina’s, Chris developed a desire to play music from early piano lessons, long-haired garage bands, and late night music on public radio. He eventually found his way to the saxophone. In 2009, Chris relocated to NYC where he has since established the beginnings of a fruitful professional career as a musician. He has had the opportunity to perform all around the world, including many of the major jazz and music festivals including North Sea Jazz Fest, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Shanghai Jazz Fest, London Jazz Fest, etc.

Chris devotes a large amount of his time performing, recording, and touring with the band Snarky Puppy. With this band and Lalah Hathaway, he won a Grammy Award in 2014 for the Best R&B Performance.

Some of the artists he has had the opportunity to perform/record with include Banda Magda, Jon Hendricks, Lalah Hathaway, Jason Marsalis, Bernard Wright, Clyde Stubblefield, Ari Hoenig, Jeff Coffin, and N’dambi.

Chris has actively been involved with educational activities. He was an adjunct instructor of Saxophone at the University of Texas -Arlington for two years. He has also taught clinics and saxophone lessons at many schools, colleges, and conservatories around the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Apart from playing the saxophone, flute, and clarinet, Chris has begun to explore making hip hop and electronic music with the MPC. This has led to him DJ'ing as well. His DJ name is DJ Boomtown. He has hosted nights of music in the US, Canada, and the UK as a DJ.

Look to see what’s next on the horizon for Chris Bullock, as he continues to explore new and challenging musical environments.

DARLA

Darla is a 7-piece instrumental band from Philadelphia. Since forming in 2014, the group has honed their palette of funk and rock grooves, drawing from their origins in the Philadelphia DIY basement scene and influences of 1970s funk and fusion. The Darla sound is an accessible one—free from over-complication and over-indulgence. Fronted by saxophonists, Wil Schade and David Bartler, the duo acts as the vocal core of the group, layering catchy melodies atop the methodical, feel-focused rhythm section of Michael Morrongiello (bass), Brendan Monahan (guitar), Jake Held (baritone guitar), Kosta Johnson (keys), and Richard Straub (drums). This talented group of non-conservatory musicians gets every crowd in the dancing mood with their raw, unpolished energy.

Darla has shared the stage with the likes of George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, KNOWER, The Disco Biscuits, George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Kamasi Washington, Bill Laurance, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles. The band works closely with the legendary engineer and member of The Butcher Brothers, Phil Nicolo (Ms. Lauryn Hill, Billy Joel, BonJovi, Bob Dylan) of Phil’s Records.
