OMAHA DINER: Charlie Hunter, Steven Bernstein, Skerik & Bobby Previte
Sitting in a diner in Omaha, Nebraska in 1954, Todd Storz noticed that a teen-age
waitress selected the same song on the jukebox over and over. At that moment, Top 40 radio was born, joining the TV dinner, the Reuben sandwich, the bobby pin, the ski lift, and (some claim) fuzzy dice on the list of famous and infamous inventions from the city that sits atop the Strategic Air Command.
Now comes the latest invention, OMAHA DINER - four storied musicians attempting to re-define a format that forever perverted the way we experience music. You may love Top 40 (doubtful), you may hate it (probable), you may not care about it at all (liar), but you cannot escape it.
Top 40 as you've never heard it before - OMAHA DINER.
OMAHA DINER: deconstructing popular music since 2012.
Derrick Freeman & Smoker's World ft. mems of Gravity A
BEST FUNK ALBUM 2012 nominee of the Best of the Beat Awards and BEST ELECTRONICA ACT 2010 nominee of the Big Easy Awards is emerging out of a city that is inundated with musical vibrations. Gravity A exhilarates New Orleans' rich musical tapestry with their fresh, dynamic energy and innovative sound. The quartet (established in 2004) is inspired by the soulful jazz expressions and second-line fusions of their hometown, yet still draws heavily upon the eclectic possibilities of electronic progressions. Gravity A has become the torchbearer for the city's late night soundtrack featuring the unmistakable sound of true New Orleans funk, tight drum n' bass breaks and intoxicating trance. The band's unique sound is highly dependent upon the musicians' passion for live instrumentation and improvisation, which often lends itself to a rambunctious adventure grooving through sunrise. As opposed to Newton's well-known gravity b, Gravity A has taken their name from the force responsible for the cohesion and semblance of all subatomic matter. At a Gravity A show in New Orleans or beyond, this force is intense and irrefutable. The dance floor is transformed into a frenzy as the polar vibrations of Gravity A's magnetic rhythms and far-reaching frequencies resonate amongst the bopping feet, shaking hips, and smiling faces.
