The best kept secret in music

Press


In the midst of an eclectic UCF crowd, an erratic revolutionary sound encircles the popular student milieu called The Underground Bluz. It is no other than the sound of a local Orlando band that goes by the name “Yanbo” - a Chinese word meaning extending the waves. Their melodic style can not be solely classified under the commonly pre-yanbo music genre. Yanbo is the melting pot of music including variations of jazz, blues, and psychedelic rock combined as a prokaryotes form... >>

often called Pangean Fusion.

The band is not confined to each member sticking to one instrument like most groups, but instead one can notice them changing places often. At one point I caught the vocalist playing the drums, then switching to the keyboard, and finally vocals.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, one of Yanbo’s multi–talented members, Alex de Angelis, free-style chanted; spontaneously blurting out lyrics. He told a story about being pulled over by a not-so-friendly Brevard County cop. It was out of this world!

Jump into this parallel universe called Yanbo and experience their colorful tunes almost every Tuesday at The Underground Bluz. However, don’t forget to bring your own musical talent during this open mic night! You can also catch Yanbo at the forthcoming OLA Fest at The Downtown Media Arts Center in Orlando, Florida.
