      Brendan Brisk Blues Band

      due to a lack of advance tickets Hipster Assassin will not be performing Bred from his own studio, Brendan Brisk introduces art funk in his 2016 solo debut Astral Counterfeit. The self-recorded, self-produced album fuses funk, soul and jazz, and boasts influences that include Beck, Sly and the Family Stone, Thundercat, and Sun Ra. In 2018 the Brendan Brisk Blues Band was formed. Brendan, along with bassist Bernard Gavlick, drummer Justin Malinowski, and trumpeter Miles Orfanella come together to create a melting pot of high-energy psychedelic blues/jazz fusion. Artistic integrity is encapsulated through the band's wild improvisations, turning the Blues Band into a platform for experimentation, expression, and creativity. Felix Pastorius, Bassist: The son of Jaco Pastorius who has worked with the Yellowjackets, Jeff Coffin's Mutet, A$AP Rocky, and Onyx Collective, has worked hard and achieved his own voice on the electric bass. This voice is the anchor of the band. Chris Ward, Saxophonist: Chris has worked/recorded with Michael Stipe and Fischerspooner, Lord Huron, The Family Crest, and various projects from all genres, from video game soundtracks to jazz big bands. John Bendy, Guitarist: Brought up in the blues, John learned his craft from masters Bill Perry and Popa Chubby. His fierce, virtuosic style comes from a blend of the blues and high energy jazz fusion. Mike Bendy, Bass: The idea of a second bassist in a band could be strange to some, but Mike's virtuosic skill and experience gives him the tools to compliment the other low-end instruments in the band perfectly. Outside of Hipster Assassins Mike has performed with Kenwood Dennard, Alex Foster, Sean Wayland and the metal band Res15. Kenny Grohowski, Drums: Kenny works regularly with various John Zorn projects as well as the famed fusion group Brand X. He has also worked with Lonnie Plaxico and Andy Milne's Dapp Theory.
