Dynamo is Nashville-based, nationally touring band whose music fuses jazz, rock, and funk with elements of soul and R&B. The culmination is a sound that’s both spontaneous and composed—and an energy that’s undeniably infectious. Formed in late 2012, Dynamo consists of nine core musicians. When they’re not performing or recording in Nashville, the band is on the road, spreading their unique brand of feel-good music to audiences all over the world.
New York-based ska band The Big Takeover takes their cues from Desmond Dekker and the first wave of Jamaican pop music as well as from the soul of Motown. At the center of this tight grooving ensemble is the live-wire singing and songwriting of the Jamaican-born NeeNee Rushie. Traditional and experimental, The Big Takeover’s global blend reveals deep fluency in reggae and world music, hints of soul, and a pop classicism that is their own thing entirely.https://hawksandreed.ticketfly.com/event/1550175/
