Forq
Forq
FORQ is made up of Rudder founder Henry Hey on keyboards (Jeff “Tain” Watts, David Bowie), Snarky Puppy founder and Grammy Award-winner Michael League on bass (Kirk Franklin, Wayne Krantz/Ari Hoenig Quartet), Foe Destroyer founder and fellow Snarky Puppy member Chris McQueen on guitar (Myron Butler, Lucy Woodward) and Jason “JT” Thomas on drums (Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Marcus Miller, D’Angelo), FORQ is an all-star ensemble of sorts - but with the spirit and cohesiveness of a garage band.

Though based in New York City, the group retains a Texas accent, where Michael League and Jason Thomas established a fast friendship and musical rapport through almost two years of weekly gigs in legendary keyboardist Bernard Wright’s trio. Austin-bred Chris McQueen just recently joined the group, which is rooted deep in a distinctly southern groove, but with both the fire and inventiveness that NYC is known for. The music is at once fierce, playful, and soulful- rich in both musical intelligence and undeniable pocket.

FORQ’s eponymous double-disc CD/DVD (featuring Adam Rogers on guitar) was released on GroundUP Music in September of 2014, and their second album BATCH was released in June 2015.
Dynamo
Dynamo is a Nashville-based, nationally touring band whose music fuses jazz, rock, and funk with elements of soul and R&B. The culmination is a sound that’s both spontaneous and composed—and an energy that’s undeniably infectious.
Formed in late 2012, Dynamo consists of nine core musicians. When they’re not performing or recording in Nashville, the band is on the road, spreading their unique brand of feel-good music to audiences all over the world.
