Wonk is an ensemble of five Los Angeles-based musicians with a shared love of grooving instrumental music. Their live shows combine elements of funk, jazz, R&B, rock, fusion, and old school soundtrack flavor, a mix best described as "Herbie Hancock and Jeff Beck meet the Rockford Files and Sanford and Son" Their debut release has been featured on KKJZ's contemporary playlist and they are a crowd-pleaser at festivals and solo shows. Collectively, the band brings many thousands of gigs' worth of seasoning to every note they play, with the goal of always giving their audience music that brims with energy, dynamics, and soul.
Stepping Feet is the premier Dave Matthews Tribute Band in the country. The band has been converting non-DMB fans to DMB fanatics for the last 13 years! We've entertained folks at Google, Pacific Life, Qualcomm, The Active Network, GE Healthcare, SD Chargers, SDFD, & brides and grooms across the country. Let's not forget outdoor festivals and our fans at some of the coolest bars and clubs in the country.
First and foremost, we're fans of the music and enjoy performing the songs while adding our own wrinkles to some of the best music put out in the last two decades. Secondly, we truly appreciate the family environment that comes along with being a Dave Matthews fan & tribute act. Our band member pool is about 12 people strong. Many of our regular band members tour with national artists throughout the year.
The band is based out of Southern California with members residing between San Diego and Los Angeles. The band typically does not tour the country; however, we've traveled to HI, CA, MA, NY, RI, CT, FL, and PA in the name of great music! Let us be next on your list of bands to blow your mind.
We'll truly give you a close-up version of the Dave Matthews Experience!
“It’s not about the perfect song or a perfect show, it’s about a perfect VIBE!” The House of Vibe embodies this truth. A group composed of talented producers, limitless lyricists, and gifted musicians whose combined talents lay a foundation, for nothing short, of musical excellence. Their frequent live shows are always electrifying and genre-less. Complete with horn section, non-stop rhythmic sounds and hard-hitting beats, House of Vibe, journey’s through rock, jazz, hip-hop and R&B with creative ease. All the while keeping the crowd jumping. Whether you’re a first time viewer or devoted follower, every performance has a unique vibe. Excluding the fact that they don’t rehearse, shows are kept cutting-edge through special guests, who amplify the already dynamic mix, and spontaneous experimentation.
It all began in a house in Culver City where Anthony “Brew” Brewster lived, worked and played. His home recording studio was a hub for such recording artists as Kanetic Source (Ozomatli), Deploi, Chali 2na (Jurassic5), Tony Tarasco (Orioles) and many more. His spot was quickly dubbed “the house” where folks, such as Res, DJ Dez, D-Break and Darius Rucker (Hootie & the Blowfish), would come to hang, record and “vibe” together…hence the name, House of Vibe. Since then, HOV has taken on many forms and a core conviction…music for them, about them, by them.
Subsequently, Brew (Fishbone/Untouchables), Fish (Fishbone), D-Break (Untouchables), DJ Dez (Slum Village) and Pocket (guitarist/Erykah Badu) of the House of Vibe crew were called upon frequently to play various gigs for major label recording artists such as Justin Timberlake, Everlast, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Chali 2na, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Res, Nikka Costa, N’dea Davenport and others.
Stay on the look out for House of Vibe’s new album this year. As well as, songs from Brew, an EP from Deploi and J-Swift, and more downloads from Free[w]ill.
And don’t forget to come see us “Westside Wednesdays” @Harvelle’s in Santa Monica.
