Having completed a successful tour of California, Brooklyn based trio Hans Blix returns to New York to bring their unique sound as part of the Heavenly Rock Festival (this year at Fontanas) on July 10th at 8pm. The trio creates complete songs from seemingly thin air, developing themes, crafting melodies, and surprising the listener at every turn. Possessing the fluditiy of fusion ala Mahavishnu, the textured soundscapes of electronica ala Squarepusher and quiet/loud indie rock dynamics of Blonde Redhead, this is music that captures your attention with epic playing chops but also entrances with ambient tones. Hans Blix's debut album was recently given 4 out of 5 stars by Ghetto Blaster magazine, and has received positive reviews from publications such as The Alternative Press, and The Aquarian.

Reviews

“a free-flowing mix of guitar noodling, drum solos, atmospheric electronics and groove- heavy basslines. Clearly these dudes know their shit. [Hans Blix] rocks like Battles, Jaga Jazzist, and Tortoise." - Alternative Press

“Scorning convention, Brooklyn trio Hans Blix does without such luxuries as composition and preparation.The band relies on body language and intuition to improvise cohesive works, with no more than a starting note predetermined... Drawing on years of musical training and experience, the members of Hans Blix build off of and expand upon each other's thoughts, resulting in a dynamic and evolving sound." - The Aquarian

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
