Garaj Mahal is a jazz fusion band formed in 2000 that combines jazz, rock, Indian music, and funk. The band consists of Fareed Haque (guitar), Kai Eckhardt (bass), Sean Rickman (drums), and Eric Levy (keyboards).
Spare Parts is an instrumental trio that pushes well beyond the jazz funk spectrum in which they thrive. This electric rhythm section, driven by vintage keyboards, electric bass and drums, recalls the aesthetics of the analog era through a fresh and modern approach. Spare Parts has several releases out on Ropeadope Records and has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and beyond while becoming a mainstay on the Chicago scene. Known for their hard hitting grooves and collaborations with Chicago’s finest musicians, Spare Parts has won a loyal following over the years. From dark dive bars to elegant jazz clubs, Spare Parts has headlined countless shows and held several successful residencies. They have opened for artists including Victor Wooten, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Vulfpeck, George Porter Jr., The Wailers, Forq, Kneebody, Garaj Mahal, The New Mastersounds, Banyan, Wayne Krantz, Chester Thompson, Alan Evans, Stanton Moore, and many more.
“These guys squeeze more out of keyboards, bass and drums than any trio you’ll find anywhere!” Russ Davis- Modern Jazz Radio (MOJA)
