Featuring: The Alchemists
The Alchemists are a group of five friends bound together by a similar approach to writing and playing music. There's Allie (sax), Anthony (drums) Russ aka Johnny BoomBats (emcee), Matt (bass), and Ralph (trumpet). We play stuff that's a mix of many styles, but our biggest influences are soul, hip-hop, funk, and jazz. Our approach is to try to look at new/cover tunes with no preconceived notions about what the final product might or should sound like, and along those lines we strive to implement our respective instruments in imaginative ways.
