UM has built a rabid fanbase through endless touring, putting them on the road 100+ nights a year. Their constantly evolving sound channels a wide spectrum of influences while still preserving their distinct voice through crafty songwriting. With a massive repertoire of originals and note-perfect covers, their live shows are like flipping through the presets on your radio dial. Their A.D.D. approach to “progressive improvisation” utilizes a set of Zappa inspired hand signals allowing them to orchestrate their melodic creations on the fly.
Very excited to be presenting GARAGE A TROIS during Jazz Fest at One Eyed Jacks on Friday May 2nd!! Tickets are on-sale now here!
Garage A Trois first formed in 1999, right after Mardi Gras, as a trio featuring Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore and Skerik. They then added Mike Dillon in 2002. In 2007 Charlie Hunter left the band and Marco Benevento joined. This union of musical forces has only increased the creative output of these musicians-and apparently really helped their grundle.
“Garage A Trois skew grittier and more psychedelic with the current lineup, combining heavy-riff distortion with a rough-and-tumble funk delirium.” – The New York Times
“Insolently awesome since 1999, the instrumental quartet Garage a Trois consists of the hair-raising saxophonist Skerik, whiplash keyboardist Marco Benevento, Galactic drummer Stanton Moore, and vibraphone-whacking percussionist Mike Dillon…a brutal yet meticulously deranged blast of raw, jazz-rock power.” – Village Voice
We are excited to announce that we are teaming up with the Howlin Wolf to bring the rockin’ UNCLE LUCIUS to New Orleans on April 9th in the ever so intimate Wolf Den.
Uncle Lucius takes Rock and Roll from its deep roots and pushes it onward, putting their own honest interpretation on the essential elements of R & B, Blues, and Country. They pride their live show as a sacred and energetic experience, with a belief that this is still the truest form of communication with their fans. All four members grew up in different parts of Texas, each finding their own way to Austin in an attempt to pursue music full time. The band includes Kevin Galloway on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Hal Vorpahl on bass, Mike Carpenter on lead guitar and vocals, and Josh Greco on drums and percussion.

Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Jeremy Malvin creates music under the name Chrome Sparks. Jeremy grew up in Pittsburgh, then went to music school at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Two years later, he left school and went on extensive tours as the drummer for Stepdad, Miniature Tigers, and Rich Aucoin. Jeremy currently resides in Brooklyn, where he spends his time working on music in his bedroom, often leaving it to play DJ sets. Although Jeremy works on the recordings alone and has not done many live performances, the Chrome Sparks live realization has had many different incarnations, ranging from a one man show to an eight piece band. Currently, Jeremy does live performances with two dear friends.
