Reptet/Space Owl at The Royal Room
Seattle-based Reptet is an atypical modern jazz sextet consisting of three rhythm players and three horns. These six dynamic multi-instrumentalists are Samantha Boshnack (trumpet, flugelhorn), Nelson Bell (trombone, tuba), Chris Credit (baritone sax, tenor sax, clarinet), Tim Carey (upright and electric bass), John Ewing (drums) & special guest Mark Oi (guitar). They play all original music incorporating jazz, reggae, rock, punk, modern classical, avant-garde, and eastern European folk music, that challenges the discerning audiophile while entertaining the casual listener. Their live performances, described as "arresting, compelling and just plain cranked-up," evolve into transformative performance art pieces utilizing costumes, storytelling and absurdist humor.
Space Owl is a four piece psychedelic rock band from Seattle, Washington that plays the music of a multitude of classic rock artists such as the Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix in addition to its own original music. New artists are unveiled on a regular basis and for this show, Space Owl is debuting Bob Dylan.
Formed of four Seattle musical heavyweights, Space Owl delivers a truly unique experience for its fans through its extensive and diverse catalog of material that is constantly evolving and growing. The musical experience is augmented by the exceptional psychedelic light show, which brings an arena style atmosphere into club environments and provides spectacular eye candy to complement the music.
