Rhythm master, Ari Hoenig and maverick keyboardist, Brian Charette have been slicing beats for over 20 years. Hoenig has become the go to source for metric modulation while Charette has earned a Grammy nomination, Critic's Poll top spot, and a coveted endorsement from Hammond Organ U.S.A.
The duo has started to add dreamy electronic soundscapes to their powerful organ set. Floating on top of the swirling organ funk is enigmatic South African vocalist and looper, Melanie Scholtz AKA the Lone Looper. Mrs. Scholtz has vast knowledge of South African folk music and the complicated tribal language, Xhosa which she uses to augment the twisting otherworldly organ grinder jams.
