Oliver Monaco Group Oliver Monaco Group was formed in 2010 at Boston’s historic Wally’s Jazz Cafe, where they showcased their deep respect for the jazz tradition. There they focused on performing originals and covering their contemporary heroes like Brian Blade Fellowship, Snarky Puppy and Kneebody.
Oliver Monaco Group reaches from the ends of traditional and contemporary jazz, indie rock and funk with their debut album, OMG, released October 18th.
TIGER SPEAK Tiger Speak was brought together from a collection of musicians with roots in straight ahead and modern jazz, with one foot in the world of J Dilla, and the DNA of neo-soul and old-school R&B all with a common love for Hip-Hop. This manifests itself in a raw, unique, visceral experience for the listener and concertgoer, spear-headed by the virtuosic lyricism of MC/trumpeter Ryan Easter.
