Beat Mosaic, is an irresistibly sassy soul band from Los Angeles, California. Anchored in a classic funk sound that evokes comparisons to the Meters and theMGs, this 8 person outfit broadcasts a sound with attitude in the extreme. Showcasing gritty vocals and biting horns, roaring organ and purring Wurlitzer, Beat Mosaic weaves a tapestry of funk, soul and afro-beat that is by turns laid-back and uproarious, equal parts Budos Band and Curtis Mayfield, Jimi Hendrix and Bill Withers. They defy you not to dance. Living in the golden zone where tasty song-writing meets expert funkmanship, Beat Mosaic is a soul band that throws its weight around on the dance floor.
The Stakes have brought new soul to Phoenix's live music scene—no longer is the nation's 6th largest metropolis devoid of the creative union of urban and art musics typical of hubs like New York, Chicago, or Philly. Whether at underground hip-hop jams or concert mashups, this culture thrives in The Stakes' eclectic brand of live hip-hop rooted in an infectious groove sure to keep your head nodding and feet moving as it resonates through your body and soul.
The Stakes are: Holly Pyle (vocals), Lord Kash (emcee), ZeeDubb (emcee), Ben Scolaro (piano), Alex Meltzer (bass), and Kevin Phillips (drums).
