LabRats - San Jose Jazz


Fri, Apr 5
8pm Doors, 9pm showtime (Pacific)
$15 / SJZ Break Room

LabRats is a dynamic quartet based in Sacramento composed of multi instrumentalists, composers, and producers. LabRats challenges their listener’s perception of “jazz,” as they embody a wide range of styles and influences ranging from Alice Coltrane, J Dilla, Soulquarians, and Sun Ra. At a live show, the band exudes a wonderful on-stage charm as they hypnotize the audience with colorful synth-scapes, syncopated drums, and fierce improvisation. In just under two years, the band has been recognized by NPR, the Grammy Awards for three different categories, and has participated in major music festivals in Sacramento and San Jose.
