Jefferson Rose Band And Cascadia '10 says
Cascadia '10 and Jefferson Rose Band join forces to get your body moving to rhythms from Africa, Latin America, Spain and the Caribbean.

Jefferson Rose Band is a 7-piece world music ensemble playing dance music from around the globe, blending rhythms and styles from afro-pop to latin, reggae and New Orleans-style funk with tight horn lines, soulful vocals, energetic percussion and bass-driven grooves.

Since 2011, JRB has rocked packed houses in Seattleā€™s biggest venues and gotten crowds dancing at Northwest festivals big and small. Their newest album, Feel Like Dancing, was released in June 2014 to rave reviews and earned 28 weeks on the CMJ World Music Top 40. Feel Like Dancing is also a window into their high-energy, superbly executed live show.

Cascadia '10 is the echo of AfroBeat in the Pacific NorthWest. With sound resonating from Nigeria to the Emerald City, we are a small army of experienced musicians bringing hypnotic funk to hips and feet.

The members of Cascadia '10 also perform in Marmalade, Soul Senate & Fascination Nation; and have performed in groups; Swamp Mama Johnson, Altered States of Funk & Sly Lothario.

C'10 has opened for international acts including Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars and Garaj Mahal. They are currently playing various NW venues and festivals; Bumbershoot 2012, Choochokum Arts & Music Festival, Nectar Lounge, The High Dive, The Tractor, The Comet Tavern, and The Seamonster Lounge.

The music of Cascadia '10 consists of original pieces but inherits from the rich legacy of Fela Kuti, Femi & Seun Kuti, Tony Allen and the wellspring of music throughout West Africa.
