LITZ is back in the AVL abd they are throwing down that psychedelic power funik!
LITZ brings together a wide array of musical influences ranging from funk, jam, go-go, soul, electronica and just about everywhere in-between to amalgamate a new sound for the ears of the world. Their sound strides to sonically transport it’s listeners to another planet free of the stress, struggles, and tribulations of modern day life through the use of funky horn riffs, wah-wah keys, pounding bass, driving/progressive rhythms and melt your face guitar.
STIG is the world’s first and finest four-piece power trio. Featuring Ryan Stigmon on the saxophone, Thomson “Soy Boy” Knoles on the keys, Jack McChesney on the drums, and Artie Sadtler on the bass guitar, the band brings their improvised psychedelic funk sound from the hills of Asheville, NC to the eyes and ears of their fans across the US.
The band is inspired by a wide array of music, from the expeditious improvisation of Herbie Hancock and Phish, to the energetic complexity of Snarky Puppy and Meshuggah. Check out a STIG show and you’re guaranteed to be drawn into a dynamic and ever-changing groove that doesn’t stop ‘till the guys walk offstage. No two songs are the same from night to night, giving the band plenty of elbow room to take them in any direction they choose. Between the high-octane improvisation and low-down and dirty FUNK, STIG is not a band you want to miss!
“Adding their own flavor to the funk revival scene, STIG keeps it smooth and sexy, interesting without ever overstaying their welcome.”
– The Deli Magazine
“Feel-good funk…played with the freewheeling abandon you would hope to hear from a bunch of very young, very talented musicians in the act of discovery.”
– The Aspen Times
