Joe Keyes and the Late Bloomer Band

Joe Keyes is equal parts front man, poet and band conductor. The Freehold, NJ, native found his orchestra in late 2009 in The Late Bloomer Band, a rotating cast of Baltimore/DC-based musicians. The band takes audiences back to the days of Miles Davis and early P-Funk, when big bands were lead by strong forces of individuals. The band’s brand of live improvisation and musical sophistication presents a different experience at every show.

While Keyes draws inspiration from musical mentors Gil Scott-Heron and Sun Ra, The Late Bloomer Band brings a modern interpretation to funk, jazz, rock and a variety of other genres.

The Late Bloomer Band’s members, in their mid-20s, help keep 52-year-old Keyes young, and come from various Baltimore and D.C.-based bands. Having grown together musically, the band’s polished tightness has landed collaborations and live shows featuring original Fishbone members Angelo “Dr. Madd Vibe” Moore and Norwood Fisher.

Purple Orange

Purple Orange is a band from Baltimore, MD, USA.

They create rock music that cannot be perceived by ordinary listening conditions from sounds that are a combination of various intensities of the various audible frequencies. You could say the band varies in various ways, but that would be very verbose, wouldn't it?

It's music that's better seen than heard, better touched than seen, better tasted than touched, and better heard than tasted. The preferred method is at a live performance or via recorded music.
