Ideateam & Seven Factorial
Tickets are $15. Ashkenaz is always all ages! Ideateam is a 9-piece ensemble driven to fuse together a variety of influences in a fresh way. Consisting of two guitars, bass, drums, percussion, brass section, and a cast of featured vocalists, the group explores the corridors of groove while flipping through styles like a deck of cards, flowing in and around various genres. Their live sound brings essences of old and new, blended with a few drops of extraterrestrial soundscapes - presented by a group of people who simply love to play music. Ideateam's self produced debut album '&?!' (And What Now) was released in October 2014 and contains original instrumental groove fusion from the core members of the group, featuring guest musicians on several tracks. Ideateam has shared the stage with several festival / tour circuit favorites (Orgone, Polyrhythmics, Kyle Hollingsworth Band) and was honored to open for legends such as Bernard Purdie and The Headhunters. Ideateam's second full-length album 'Moving Still' was released October 2016, along with a fresh batch of new live material and video releases. The group seeks to continue evolving the live music experience they are quickly becoming known for, and further cultivating a positive connection with people through music. 7! (Seven Factorial) is a tour de force of soul and funk--and you'd better be ready to move your body. Blending psychedelic rock, blues, and reggae, the band's deep grooves, sleek basslines, and interweaving melodies will take you to the promised land of 21st century jam band bliss. By the end, you're guaranteed to find yourself swimming upstream in a river of rhythm reminiscent of the Dead, tossed about by Clapton-esque electric guitar solos, and blasted into the cosmos itself.
