The show starts at 8pm tonight. Both acts are well known in the Seattle Jazz community and have promised special guests will also be performing tonight.
Gravity is a Seattle based keyboard trio and production team comprised of keyboardist Tim Kennedy, bassist Ian Sheridan, and drummer Claudio Rochat-Felix. Their debut release, Grimy, is an eleven song jazz-based groove record with hints of drum and bass, afro beat, hip hop, lounge, and electronica. It won the 2010 IO award for mixed genre album of the year.
Hardcoretet is a Seattle-based instrumental quartet that performs original material drawing from jazz, rock, soul and improvised music, among other styles. The band presents music written by each of its members and is reminiscent of fusion groups like Return to Forever and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, as well as more current modern jazz groups like Chris Potter’s Underground and Kneebody. On stage, the band seeks to combine well-written and thought-provoking music with energetic, exciting, and moving performances.
The show is at 8pm tonight and the ticket price is $8. Tickets can be purchased at Tula’s directly. Also, it’s Thursday and every Thursday night Tula’s has a special: make dinner reservations and arrive before 7:00pm to receive a 10% discount on all food items.
