OFJS: the SOUND Effekt plus Tremblewick Boog

Join us for the next installment of Oakland Freedom Jazz Society! Our weekly Monday night live music series!

June 19th at Studio Grand

Dave Tidball- Reeds
Galen Grant- Drums
Mike Wynar- Guitar

The Sound Effekt, a band, a vibe, an experience. Drummer Galen Grant, guitarist Mike Wynar and woodwind maestro Dave Tidball coalesce to spark creative audiences and explore the vast nuances of improvised music. After meeting over the years in funk and straight ahead jazz settings, the members of The Sound Effekt diverge from their roots to create an elastic rhythmic pocket while embracing the 'stream of consciousness' values adopted by the early freedom music pioneers. From the textures and timbres of brass and bronze, the amplitude of electrified strings, to the woody resonance of the bass clarinet, this trio seeks to excite your sensory palette!

Our primary instruments are tenor sax and keys, but we often incorporate voice, trumpet, clarinet, flute, percussion, and an assortment of toys. Our music is mostly improvisation, expressing a wide range of shifting, vibrant colors and tonal progressions.
