SUN HOP FAT
SUN HOP FAT
For years Sun Hop Fat has been at the forefront of introducing the unique sounds of Ethiopian Jazz to the masses. The music blends the rhythms of traditional American funk (James Brown, Parliament) and jazz (Yusef Lateef, Miles Davis) with harmonies and melodies from East Africa. The result is an up-tempo groove machine that borrows harmonies from the Middle East. The music focuses primarily on arrangements from the “golden era” of Ethiopian Jazz but includes original compositions as well. This all-star band includes standout musicians from other popular San Francisco Bay Area groups. Sun Hop Fat has developed a solid following throughout Northern California by playing a number of clubs and festivals. The ability of the band to captivate sit down jazz crowds as well as steal the spotlight in prime festival slots, encouraging crowds to get up and dance, makes the group flexible in its appeal and garners support from diverse audiences.Sun Hop Fat will be touring and appearing at festivals up and down the west coast throughout 2018.
“…a steady wall of extraordinary moving sound and beats…” – San Francisco Examiner
The story began at University of Oregon in 1999 where Jordan and Dustin met during their freshman year at school.
Jordan played bass (sort of) and Dustin played guitar and sang. They started out butchering covers of Phish, Sublime,
Green Day, Weezer and Everclear in a dark, cold basement in Eugene, OR. About a year later they met a drummer
properly named "Wild Bill" as he was an out-of state student from Iowa. Original ideas and tracks quickly came to the forefront. This new band consists of the same members but different ideas, combining our unique musical backgrounds and creating AUDIODUB. This new project combines the ska/reggae elements that we're used to and
blends them with our own personalities of hard rock and punk.
