Jazz Funk Band at ‘Shooters & Shenanigans’ This Weekend
Shooters & Shenanigans is proud to present nationally recognized hip hop, jazz, funk and soul group DDAT in concert on Saturday, December 9. Music will begin at 8:00pm and last until 11:00pm — everyone welcome and there is no cover charge.
DDAT has been described using words like “Funky, poetic, complex, forward thinking, outside the box” by national media for good reason. Blending Def-i’s intelligent and poetic words and hip hop style with the hard driving funk and jazz jams of Delbert Anderson (Trumpet), Nicholas Lucero (Drums) and Mike McCluhan (Bass) – DDAT has carved their own path with their desert forged influences and world class musicianship.
“It’s evident that these artists share a forward-thinking restlessness and a refusal to be parceled into neat boxes.” Rachel Horn – NPR
“The Delbert Anderson Trio and Albuquerque-based rapper Def-i, are, in two words, very lit, and absolutely ooze with indigenous musical talent.” Zak Cheney Rice – Yahoo.com / Identities.Mic
“But things take a twist as the bass comes in with a psychedelic effect like a Herbie Hancock song. That’s when the drums and trumpet kick into a jazzy aesthetic. Between trumpet solos, Bidtah freestyled while interacting with the crowd, commenting on the things people wore as well as the venue’s decor. A clearly proficient wordsmith, he incorporated religious themes in his rhymes and spit ridiculous tongue-twisters.” Richard Reyes – Gallup Independent
