Led by guitarist Justin Rock, Bastet takes the art of improvisation and the art of the trio into edgy, unfiltered territory. The “grunge-jazz” or “grazz” trio brings Rock’s distinct compositional voice to life, featuring Bay Area stalwarts Giulio Xavier Cetto on bass and Mike Quigg on drums. The trio’s contagious onstage chemistry comes from years playing and touring together, as well as its welcoming spirits, bringing listeners into its exploratory, at times time-bending ambiance. With four albums to date, and on the verge of their fifth release At The Age of Zero (Slow & Steady Records), Bastet is potent and brimming with passion.

CHIVES represents the collective musical output of bassist Matthew Wohl, multi-reedist Steven Lugerner and drummer Max Jaffe. Their music is a continuation of the jazz trio continuum – yet Chives’ repertoire is heavily influenced by the world of songwriting. Friends since middle school, Chives have been making music together for the majority of their lives and have released three album to critical acclaim, Yeaux (2016), Dads (2012) & For Brian Wilson (2010).
