FLOWTILLA 1.oo-4.oo
Flowtilla play a sophisticated blend of psychedelic world groove jazz-funk: “The group takes a theme or a rhythm and they run with it. The guitar soars along over drummer Jan Jackson and bassist Ellen Schoenwetter’s driving grooves. Len, Ellen, and Jan all definitely have some serious playing ability.”

HIGH STANDARDS 2.oo-5.oo
In addition to playing original material, High Standards draw from a constellation of different songs and genres, seamlessly blending the new with the old, the classics with the club bangers. This wild, unorthodox, and ostensibly reckless combination of genres is what makes High Standards so fresh, devastating, like a flamingo savagely consumed by lava from an exploding volcano!
