Philadelphia’s funktronica powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of funk, rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of high energy performance and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco dance parties driven by their own incessant beat. With several national tours, and a uniquely cohesive sound, they have proven they can bring the fun anywhere they go.
Brennan Fowler and Ethan Riffe of Imperial Blend team up with Johnathon Fann to create lively fresh, feet moving, head bopping, electronic improv beats
JEBtrio started as a live jam session at the “Let’s Get Together Festival in Oct. 2016. This first opportunity was awared when the trio took the stage, and everyone, by surprise with their musically enlightened experience. The trio and everyone else who heard knew immediately that this collaboration had the potential for evolving into something great—-producing a phenomenal organic sound.
After a few practice sessions it was determined that the basis for the concept of JEBtrio would be pure, raw, on the spot improvisation. This is how the band wanted to proceed… so that every show was different in many ways, but at the same time it was all recognizable to the JEBtrio sound. The 3 key elements of quality musicianship, performance, and high energy would be the cornerstone of the music.
When trying to describe the sound of JEBtrio, or the mood that is created when they are performing, all one can say is “less is more.” Their music speaks for itself, which is the most accurate source for their description. Pure, Live, Instrumental, Electronic Dance Music.
The smooth driving bass lines (provided by Ethan Riffe) combined with the metronomic drums (provided by Johnathon Fann) lays down a rhythmic foundation creating space for the textured pads and melodic key riffs (provided by Brennan Fowler) that will keep your body moving and dancing throughout the whole performance, while completely losing track of reality.
Do yourself a favor and get out to see the JEBtrio at one of their upcoming shows and be a part of something completely organic and amazing!
