Biography

The Non-Profits are an experiment in the depths of musical consciousness. The quartet started as a completely improvised project with a summer long residency at The Paradox Jazz Club in Roanoke, VA during 2002. The end result of that summer is a repertoire, and playing style that can only be described as truly original. The band is pushing the Modern Jazz/Groove genre forward. Taking cues from Jazz influences like The Miles Davis Electric Bands, and John Coltrane, and combining them with elements of Dub, Reggae, Afro-Latin music, Drum and Bass, Acid Jazz, Funk, and Afrobeat, the sound is eclectic, yet focused, paying homage to the greats buy moving ahead.
