BASI VIBE is an independent R&B, soul, and poetry artist that draws most of his inspiration from his culture-rich hometown of Sacramento. With a modern and urban take on his favorite “oldies,” his smooth and soulful vocals are complimented by the calming strings of the guitar or the mellow vibes of the keys. His sound is influenced by the likes of various artists such as Frank Sinatra, John Legend, Jamie Cullum, Frank Ocean, and D’Angelo.
While Certainly influenced by purveyors of the New Orleans second-line style of Jazz, City of Trees Brass Band also cites less traditional acts like the Youngblood Brass Band and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble as sources of inspiration — groups from the Midwest that merge brassy jazz with hip-hop, gypsy rock, and even punk. The result is an expectedly funky, yet unexpectedly contemporary party, with as many as 12 musicians grooving on trumpet, saxophone, trombone, sousaphone, and percussion instruments.
