Kyle Hollingsworth Band

Thirty years ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. With a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent deftly able to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres. Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that I’ve learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.” His most recent release, titled Then There’s Now, finds the musician coming in to his own. With solid song material and a slamming new band, Kyle is making his mark in the new, always-evolving music scene. Then There’s Now delivers a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes and seamlessly displays his growth as a musician and as a songwriter.

CBDB

Filtered through the waters of Alabama’s Black Warrior River, CBDB’s Joyfunk emerges from the muddy depths bringing to light a crisp, revolving blend of progressive rock, funk, jam, and fusion. phone.keys.wallet., CBDB’s debut album, was released in November 2012 and saw rapid success with hook heavy songs like Slow Foxes reaching 22K+ plays on spotify. CBDB is currently preparing to release their second album, Joyfunk is Dead, in early 2015. The facetiously titled sophomore effort takes Joyfunk down a more progressive route while still keeping its hook and groove oriented roots. CBDB has built a strong presence through steady touring of the Southeast playing headlining shows to dedicated followings in rooms like The Jupiter, Zydeco, Bourbon Street, Smiths Olde Bar, Terminal West, The Camel, Proud Larry’s and Exit/In. They have shared the stage with acts including Umphreys McGee, Earphunk, The Wailers, B.o.B., The Revivalists, Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.), Moon Taxi, Mike Jones, Seven Handle Circus, Octopus Nebula, The Vegabonds, Space Capone among many others. “CBDB is one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Southeast in years. The buzz about the band is very reminiscent of Widespread Panic in the late 80’s. CBDB proves you don’t need computers to make great music.” -Rick Stowe, Managing Director and Partner-East Coast Entertainment
