Utilizing a layered, atmospheric approach to beat craftsmanship and jazz improvisation, San Francisco Bay Area quartet Secret Sidewalk has armed themselves with a multitude of talented musicians and musical tools to build a compelling and distinct sound of their own. Founded in 2010, Secret Side-
walk is comprised of a close-knit group of musicians, all born and raised in the Bay Area, yet at the same time deriving from vastly different backgrounds and crafts. The group is comprised of inveterate jazz, hip hop, and experimental music practitioners
that are well-versed in taking their listeners on a journey. Some of the group's past shows include playing at the classic “Change the Beat” night (thrown by Mophono, Citizen Ten, and The Gaslamp Killer), Low End Theory (Los Angeles and San Francisco), South by Southwest (Grown Kids Radio SXSW Showcase), SF Offsides, San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, Oakland's Hiero Day, and Secret Sidewalk's brain child, “Smart Bomb”, the most forward-thinking live and electronic showcase in the Bay Area.
