Electric Empire

Stevie Wonder, Al Green and Curtis Mayfield are just a few of the names evoked by Electric Empire, a Melbourne-based trio who rank as one of the finest of the current generation of soul revivalists. Guitarist and principle songwriter Dennis Dowlut has a fine ear for melody, while the group's live shows – in which he shares vocal duties with keyboardist Aaron Mendoza and drummer Jason Heerash – have earned them a devoted international following. Though their Japan debut finds them playing at the Blue Note, Electric Empire's gig will depart slightly from the venerable jazz temple's usual format by featuring warm-up DJs on each night. DJs Muro, Nori and Jazzy Sport Crew helm the turntables on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening, respectively.
