Experimenting with different visual and audio performance techniques, the shows transport the listener into an 80’s music video fever dream that screams for mercy from a bottomless pit of modern jazz – sometimes accompanied by a televised (via VHS tape), synchronized drummer.

Music and lyrics by Miles Hancock
Miles describes the music as, “Jazz but not– it’s a modern thing, and not by what that used to mean. There are songs and it’s fun– the players are great. There’s something for everyone. It might be good for you– especially the sad parts”.
