Here is the Patreon intro video I made for our Patreon page:
We are proud our debut CD '"Arctic" was included in Andrew Gilbert's "Best of 2016" article for the Mercury News and Marin Independent Journal, about his favorite 2016 Bay Area music releases!
Nice article by Andrew Gilbert of the San Jose Mercury on the band and our Art Boutki CD Release.
Translated quote from review in Laboratorium Muzycznych Fuzji", a Polish Jazz Site:
'Arctic'not only mixes styles and genres, but it also expands our musical horizons."
We recently played for Bob Athayde and the kids in the Stanley Middle School band program in Lafayette, CA.
• "Arctic", our debut Ridgeway release has been getting great reviews! Check our EPK tab to see what they've been saying about the CD.
