Oddjob Ensemble
"Oddjob Ensemble is Kalei Yamanoha's strange and wonderful brainchild, a consortium of multi-instrumentalists and specialists, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With powerful ancient melodies and sounds that twist the ear into a delicious musical pretzel, they touch upon many different cultural influences and find unusual but fascinating combinations of traditional styles, jazz, and progressive music. Largely instrumental, an evening with the Oddjob Ensemble is a showcase of stunning musicianship, exotic tonalities and of course shenanigans."
Barrio Manouche
Barrio Manouche
Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and
California) playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artists from around the globe.
The San Francisco based ensemble has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique,
and their passion for their musical improvisation.
The band performs a repertoire of original instrumental compositions with a unique sound that it's difficult to classify
but instantly recognizable deeply influenced by a range of musical traditions, from the swing of Louis Armstrong and
Sidney Bechet, to the hot jazz of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli,the gypsy soul of eastern Europe, the
flamenco of Paco de Lucía to the avant-garde sounds of Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane…
Greetings from Planet Cabbage!

We’re a group of six musicians from across the SF bay area who get together to play original and improvised music. As a band, we’ve developed a unique approach to writing and arranging where all of our individual voices and influences come together to create something larger than any of us.

In January of 2016 we released an EP that was quickly outdated as our sound evolved. Since then, we’ve been working on new material that we’ve tried to capture in our upcoming release - ‘AGE’. We’ve collaborated with some great engineers to try to bottle our sound and energy as authentically as possible. This band means the world to us, and being able to hand you a CD with our name on it will be a dream come true.

With love,

The Cabbages
