Everyone Orchestra
Everyone Orchestra
The Everyone Orchestra conductor/founder Matt Butler has taken its participants, both on stage and off, on improvisational journeys with the most diverse of lineups at festivals, theaters and philanthropic events both nationally and internationally. A laundry list of hundreds of musicians, dancers, singers, guest conductors and community organizations have embraced the experience of EO in single shots of musical adrenaline to the soul. Tuning in to his energy, the band and audience utilize The Conductor as their pivot to the set mood of each passing jam as he communicates with the musicians using hand signs, whiteboard and assorted mime suggestions.

The list of Everyone Orchestra participants is an increasingly wide and intercontinental group including members of The Grateful Dead, Phish, moe., String Cheese Incident, The Flecktones, Club d'Elf, ALO, Tea Leaf Green and Adrian Belew, Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur, Tuvan throat singers, live painters, dancers, chanters, choirs, hula hoopers, firespinners, jugglers, stiltwalkers, storytellers, a presidential candidate and hundreds of others among a growing legion of other performers.

Marching clearly into uncharted territory, The Everyone Orchestra balances the challenges of live group improvisation with triumphant tension and release conduits of music which head deep into the soul. This unique collaborative triumph of performance deeply encourages and requires audience interaction, its edge of your seat enthusiasm for what is next is the forte behind the continuous musical experiment of The Everyone Orchestra.
Aztec Sun
What started at DC’s One World Studios as a Funk-Rock 4-piece outfit assembled after a Craigslist ad quickly became a go-to band for live events, house parties and bars throughout the city. Over time, band member departures and new arrivals saw AZTEC SUN evolve into a larger group modeled in the Funk and Soul traditions – with horns, group singing, coordinated outfits and synchronized dance moves. Today, AZTEC SUN performs with a collective mindset, drawing a parallel between the communal nature of music and the community that has grown around the band. Thus, while the performers may vary from show to show, at its core stands a diverse and tightly-knit ensemble with a shared affinity for groove music.

AZTEC SUN’s infectious songwriting, rhythmic versatility and energetic performances have yielded rewards for the group, most notably being named Best Local Original Band by the Washington City Paper in 2016 and 2017 (runner-up). These accolades, along with the group’s reputation as a well-oiled machine, have made AZTEC SUN an ideal local act to pair with internationally touring artists passing through the DMV. To name a few: Lee Fields & The Expressions, Shaun Martin of Snarky Puppy, Burning Spear, The Suffers, The Pimps of Joytime, Naughty Professor and The Main Squeeze.

AZTEC SUN marked the end of 2016 with the release of their debut studio EP, Set You Free. The self-produced project is both an example of the band’s melodic creativity and a preview of what it has to offer. With this EP under their belt, an ever-growing fan base and a passion for spreading feel-good music, AZTEC SUN will continue seeking new audiences to entertain and opportunities to push their brand of “Funk with Soul” beyond the city they call home.
