Berklee BeanTown Jazz FestivalKneebody
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Kneebody's sound is a combination of explosive rock energy, high-level nuanced chamber ensemble playing, and highly wrought compositions that are balanced with adventurous no-holds-barred improvising. All “sounds like” references can be set aside; this band has created a genre and style all its own.
Kneebody bassist Kaveh Rastegar thinks of the band's sound this way: “Personally, I think calling Kneebody 'jazz' or 'electric jazz' is fantastic because then we can move on from that hang up and play our music—and alter expectations of what jazz is.”
