Triangle Afrobeat Orchestra / Butter

Triangle Afrobeat Orchestra, led by bassist/composer Vattel Cherry, is an effort to wake up consciousness, bring people together, interpret, explain, denounce, keep record, and provoke changes through music. TAO takes its inspiration from Afrobeat creators Fela Kuti, drummer Tony Allen as well as pianist/singer Nina Simone and fiction writer/poet Henry Dumas.

Butter is Brad Newell's funky rock trio centered around a healthy blend of original songs along with some of your favorite classics. With Dylan Scherr on drums and Alan Hardison on bass, together they hold down a rhythm section that wraps itself around Brad songs. Playing a specially treated guitar, Brad makes his guitar sound like a Hammond B3 organ. The band won Relix Magazine's Jam-Off, which resulted In coverage in the magazine. Our first CD is due to be out this Spring.
