"Q: What do you call a jazz/rock fusion band with a DJ and MC? A: More Of Anything"

Q: What do you call a jazz/rock fusion band with a DJ and MC?
A: More Of Anything

In a world full of mid-tempo copycats and Disney pop stars, More Of Anything is an incredibly unique act. We took in a high-energy show at the Triple Door the other night. Sparking that energy was Brandon Blake, striding through the crowd while fingering his bass. More Of Anything was formed in Seattle by lead guitarist Neri Osmanovic and drummer Brad Burkett in 2009. Adding funky rhythms on guitar is Byung Chung.

Charismatic MC Moe Betta from New York asked me if I was picking up what he was laying down. I replied, "Most of it." At times, he rapped so furiously that I did not catch all the words. But, I could tell all the boys were having a good time playing together. The crowd was so into the show that some became a part of it, dancing with band members. One person even knocked over a mic stand which turned off the power strip that the DJ's gear was plugged into, but it was good timing, as it was the last song of the night.

More Of Anything's new EP fails to capture the spirit of the live show, but I'll spin a couple tracks from it on KJRW, and you can tell me what you think.

A sunny day at the Beacon Hill Festival

The Beacon Hill Festival was Saturday, and this year the weather was great! Sunny and warm, but not too hot—it felt like we might actually get a summer this year after all. Here are a few photos of the day. Were you there? We’d love to see your photos, too. Please contribute them to the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr. Thanks to Furchin for contributing some wonderful photos!

Bio

More Of Anything was formed in June 2009 by Neri Osmanovic and Brad Burkett, longtime college friends. Osmanovic on guitar, was born and raised in Bosnia Herzegovina and moved to United States in 1998. He bridges a unique and intoxicating blend of traditional Eastern European songwriting with all out rock and roll. Burkett on drums, takes pride in being the band’s rock solid flare-filled foundation. After writing and rehearsing five demo songs for half a year, the band welcomed new addition on bass, musician and artist extraordinaire Brandon Blake. Blake's heavy syncopated bass lines, massive sound and creative influence propelled the band forward, altering their sound in many new ways. Brandon soon recruited Miami’s own Byung Chung on guitar, taking the band’s rhythm section to new heights. Chung is known for his traditional rhythmic funk styles that instantly added a more danceable element to the group. By January 2010, the band had cultivated a new unique sound that represented the member’s varied backgrounds and influences. In October 2010, Byung enlisted New York born MC Moe Betta to round the outfit’s sound. With Moe’s hype style, big smile and complex word play, they now had the storytelling MC they needed to engage crowds all over Seattle and beyond. More Of Anything has been performing regularly in Seattle. More Of Anything is excited to present their international sound to larger audiences. A hodge-podge of rock, funk, soul, hip-hop, fusion and electronic stylings with their signature ethnic traditional sounds creates family friendly, high energy shows that leave people talking. More Of Anything strongly believes in the power of music to bridge cultures and strengthen community. The MOA Mothership is taking off. Are you onboard?
