If you like to dance to funky live music, Jimmie’s Ladder 11 is your spot this weekend. SassafraZ, a Columbus-based band, is in town and bringing along their friends Swift Technique, out of Philly. They love the live music scene in Dayton, and can’t wait to rock out Jimmie’s on Friday February 26th!
SassafraZ is a super collection of six great guys who make their music and live their lives with the emphasis on the offbeat. All of them really enjoy holding a groove, grooving out, grooving in, and just plain moving and grooving. Started by multi-instrumentalists Jack Gould and Zach Pontzer in 2012, SassafraZ quickly took the midwest music scene by storm, playing shows with notable groups such as Snarky Puppy, Galactic, Papadosio, The Werks, Dopapod, and many more. The band released its first album “Time Will Tell” in 2013 and the follow up “Move Your Body” a year later in 2014.
Swift Technique is a fiery funk extravaganza, who are entering 2016 after completing their most successful year to date. Most recently, the band has held several high profile support slots, including sharing the stage with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Motet, Fishbone, The Main Squeeze, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, JoJo Mayer, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Sophistafunk. While introducing the powerhouse lead vocal tandem of Chelsea ViaCava & Nik Greeley, the band released two new singles, “Dress Shoes” & “Jay’s the Name” to critical acclaim. 2015 saw the debut of Swift Technique’s “Ultimate Funk Throwdown: Prince Vs. Morris Day”, which will continue to be performed on select dates throughout the country.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to see these rising stars in the midwest music scene! Only $5 admission!
