Reptet to Perform Sunday, May 15 at 2720 Cherokee

SOURCE: Published:
The six-member, Seattle-based band Reptet (pictured) will make its St. Louis debut on Sunday, May 15 with a performance at 2720 Cherokee. The group is touring in support of its latest CD At The Cabin, playing 15 shows in the east, midwest and mountain states in 17 days.

Described by ChicagoJazz.com as “Part mutant New Orleans brass band, part Sun Ra orchestra and part Skatellites," Reptet includes Samantha Boshnack (trumpets, vocals), Nelson Bell (trombone, tuba), Izaak Mills (tenor sax, bass clarinet, flute, vocals), Chris Credit (baritone sax, tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet), Tim Carey (double bass, bass guitar, banjo) and John Ewing (drums, percussion, vocals).

At The Cabin is their fifth release, and the fourth full-length CD of their original compositions, which incorporate “jazz, reggae, rock, ska, punk, modern classical, avant-garde, and eastern European folk music." Showtime for the Reptet at 2720 Cherokee is scheduled for 8:00 p.m., and tickets will be $7 at the door.

To get an idea of what Reptet sounds like, you can see and hear them performing the title song from their 2008 CD Chicken or Beef? in the embedded video window below.
