About

Ultraviolet Hippopotamus

Ultraviolet Hippopotamus is an explosive five-piece progressive improvisational band with a rapidly growing fan base across the U.S. and, more recently, Europe. Described as “brightening the future of the jam band scene,” Ultraviolet Hippopotamus mixes tight, funky jams with new dance beats, heartfelt lyrics, compelling composition, eccentric effects and a vibrant light show for an incredible, one-of-a-kind musical experience. Known for its on-stage musical alchemy – cultivated from years of relentless touring – the band performs an eclectic selection of technically demanding compositions and improvised material along with unconventional and fun covers.
The group deftly journeys between funk, jazz, livetronica, space rock, reggae, bluegrass, and progressive rock within a single show and, sometimes, within a single song. Exploring new ground and taking risks make every performance unique, and fans are never sure what exactly the band will deliver each night; other than exceptional music.

Anyone remotely familiar with the ‘jam band sound’ will immediately recognize Ultraviolet Hippopotamus’ influences and genre-mixing musical objectives, but the band adds a level of talent, intricacy and polish that truly sets it apart. Tight, energetic jams and outstanding vocals — a true rarity among the band’s peers — coupled with the act’s spontaneity and strong songwriting add to its appeal. The word is out, and the band is quickly developing into an international sensation.

Ultraviolet Hippopotamus’ highly praised third album, “Square Pegs, Round Holes,” reached No. 3 and spent much of the year in the top 25 of the Relix Magazine/Jambands.com National Radio Chart and was voted “2011 Studio Album of the Year” at the Home Grown Music Network. It also received similar nominations from several radio programs, among other acclaim. The album continues to sell steadily and receives airplay across the U.S. as well as internationally in Italy, Brazil, France, Switzerland, England, Spain, Germany and other countries.

About

Chachuba is a four piece electronic/trance-fusion jam band that does not let the notion of “genre” limit the styles and influences found in their live shows. Chachuba has been able to transcend boundaries and have had the honor to play alongside talented jam bands and electronic producers.

The band is influenced by electronic dance music, with improvisation as a key component. Their jams are fueled by heavy and melodic guitar riffs, synths, and funky beats. No matter the show or festival, headlining or supporting gig, Chachuba’s music is infectious–and their fanbase continues to grow day by day.

The band consists of Nate Beitz (bass), Sean DiCosola (keyboard/synth), Gary Goodheart (drums) and Jimmy Klimek (guitar).

From the House of Blues in Chicago to State Bridge Amphitheater in Colorado, Chachuba has begun to spread their music and message all across the United States.

Chachuba is a grassroots band that has been touring for only 2 years and has hit major music festivals such as SummerSet, Summer Camp (Grassroots stage), Backwoods Music (x2), Great North, Hyperion Music and Arts Festival (x2) and many more . With two EPs and two singles featured on theUntz, and their first full length album coming soon expect to see Chachuba in a city near you.

Review:
“Finally came Sunday, the day most folks were anticipating. Kicking it off was relatively new Jamtronica group Chachuba. They layed down some funky riffs and tantalizing synths. Look out for this band in years to come, I have a feeling this is only the beginning for Chachuba.” Ray John Summer Set Music Festival
