On Wednesday, February 6, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes SunSquabi to the WOW Hall along with special guests Yak Attack.

Since jam bands originated out of jazz and rock ‘n’ roll in the 1960s, the sound has continued to evolve to this day. Few are moving the style into the future as much as SunSquabi.

Specializing in what they call “electronic hydro funk”, SunSquabi takes from the past while helping create the next wave of jam music.  Made up of trio Kevin Donohue (guitar/keys/production), Josh Fairman (bassist/synth) and Chris Anderson (drums), the three use creativity to form a big sound with limited numbers. Donohue and Fairman each frequently have three instruments in front of them, seamlessly switching from one to the next.

SunSquabi is coming to Eugene fresh off their January 2019 release, Instinct.  By far their most EDM inspired project to date, SunSquabi’s newest record is filled with electronic production. This allows guitarist Donohue to provide nearly nonstop guitar riffs, preserving the funk with his strings. Arguably their best project to date, Instinct provides music lovers of all ages something to be enjoyed.

 

YAK ATTACK

SunSquabi will be joined by special guest Yak Attack. Straight out of the Pacific Northwest, the Portland based band is a frequent visitor to Eugene, playing multiple shows in the city last year.

Few bands could pair better than Yak Attack and SunSquabi. Also a trio, Yak Attack is Dave Dernovsek (keys), Rowan Cobb (bass) and Nick Werth (drums).  Without a frequent guitar player, the band loses the traditional jam sound, replacing it with lead keys that give the band a synthesized, futuristic sound.  The group has spent the last six years growing in popularity, touring with bands such as Phish, String Cheese Incident and Sound Tribe Sector 9.

Eugene has a history of being a city with some of the most passionate jam band followers around.  Fans of the genre will have a chance to combine the old with new when SunSquabi and Yak Attack visit Eugene.

Tickets are $13 in advance, $16 day of show, with $1 going to the Can’d Foundation.  Doors open at 7:00 pm and showtime is 8:00.
