with support from Escaper

The literal definition of Escaper is "one who escapes confinement". Named an "On the Verge" artist by Relix Magazine, this Brooklyn-based space rock band strives for sounds and grooves without limits.

Escaper’s live shows are known for keeping the funky dance parties going strong. You may have caught the band at festivals such as DiscJam (where they were joined on stage by members of Turkuaz), Elements, Bear’s Picnic, as well as headlining Grateful for Spring. They have played venues across the Northeast ranging from BRYAC to Brooklyn Bowl, and shared bills with such acts as Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Electric Beethoven, The Mallett Brothers Band feat Jon Fishman, Cabinet, Aqueous, Jimkata, and more. Prior to joining Escaper, members of the band came from various other groups such as Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds and The Funk Ark, having performed at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Catskill Chill and more.

The band released their first album, “Skeleton Key” with Ropeadope Records in May 2017 to critical acclaim including being named one of three "Release Day Picks" by JamBase. Live for Live Music said, “Their sound is a reckoning force of funky fusion music...there’s no telling how high this band can climb."

The 2nd album, “Edge Detection” was recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, and released in February 2018. Their live sets tend to be open with many in-the-moment improvisational aspects, and this essence was not lost during the studio recordings. Bandleader and guitarist, Will Hanza, expresses, “The term ‘jam’ can be a loaded one, but the idea of having some concrete ideas, while still allowing the music to be open to take advantage of the moment is really important to us.”

REVIEWS:
“With multifaceted, oftentimes soaring jams, Escaper’s opening set of tunes set a groovy and rocking vibe for the rest of the evening.” - Jambase (regarding opening for The Mallett Brothers, featuring Jon Fishman of Phish, at Brooklyn Bowl on 4/12/18).

"A mind blowing set filled with psychedelic guitar virtuosity, tight grooves, and impressive musicianship." - The Jamwich

“This up-and-coming juggernaut blends together effortlessly with each member adding his own unique flavor. The band’s music alone draws you in, but it’s their connection to it and to each other that truly completes the package. Their passion oozes out of each and every note they play as they seamlessly take turns controlling the stage.” - Music Fest News
