"Issue #148"

Tetrabox recently played a show at the Rhythm & Rye with The Teaching headlining and as an extra bonus to a wonderful evening cultivating a new following in Olympia, Tetrabox was reviewed by a local magazine, Improvijazzation Nation Magazine. Here are some great quotes from it:

“it doesn’t feel like a soundcheck at all… it’s a full-blown dance fury, with Joey out on the floor where the crowd is…”

“this one is a SCORCHER & the rhythm never stops.”

“Joey & his crew definitely SMOKED IT – I loved their show!“

“This Tetrabox lineup is nothing short of spectacular, with Joey as the leader and a whole host of players supporting his excellent vocal and keyboard talents. The “final soundcheck” starts their set and is unique in itself, with Joey out on the dance floor monitoring & checking the sound for the horns, drums & guitars… very cool, ‘coz it doesn’t feel like a soundcheck at all… it’s a full-blown dance fury, with Joey out on the floor where the crowd is… excellent way to start off a set – & those horns are KILLER…. show is already kickin’ – & it ain’t even started yet!

The second tune starts off with a supercharged synth intro (with sax), then goes right into Joey’s silky-smooth vocal… very well organized & solid structure…. sax lead on this one is a SCORCHER & the rhythm never stops. Third tune is a solid souler (or as Joey calls it, Electrosoul)… cracker-jack horn opening with some fine/smooth changes & the keyword is PUNCTUALITY! Soaring guitar lead after the vocal.

# 4 was a high-beat (triple time) vocal lead… it’s a little “fast” for the dancers on the floor, so they just kinda’ watch the players… sorta’ like an “orchestral disco” once those horn riffs kick in. The fifth tune has a drum machine intro – definite excellence in rhythm & cool electro-soul vocals bring home exactly what Joey was talkin’ about when he called their music electro-soul… it’s one of the most driving tunes I’ve heard in a long time… got th’ whole jungle dancin’, to be sure. Oly should be SO glad to have this venue, & bands like this… Joey & his crew definitely SMOKED IT – I loved their show!”
