The American band Kneebody is a musical chameleon whose natural camouflage lies somewhere in the genres of post-bop, indie-rock, and hip-hop—maybe. It’s easiest to describe the group as a jazz band; the five musicians take their cues from jazz instrumentation, but in the process they layer in blends of unorthodox and eclectic styles. The final product is explosive energy drawn from skilled composing and compelling improvisation.

Since its inception in 2001, the band has received numerous accolades for its remarkably new style. The group was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2009 and has collaborated with musicians such as Wayne Krantz, Daedelus (also known as Alfred Darlington), and Busdriver (also known as Regan Farquhar).

“It’s probably safe to assume at this point that no other band working today can offer what Kneebody delivered at the Blue Whale on Friday night.”—Los Angeles Times

“There isn’t a handy term or genre for the music that Kneebody creates. . . . Whatever the terminology, this group has an audience.”—New York Times
