As demonstrated on their recent release Layers of Chance (Contrology Records, 2008), Dapp Theory displays an uncanny ability to blend various instrumental textures and infectious grooves, with lush harmonies and poignant, socially conscious lyrics. Founder Andy Milne, whose jazz cred is evidenced by his work with such acclaimed artists as Ravi Coltrane, Ralph Alessi, Steve Coleman, and Cassandra Wilson, as well as by being voted Rising Star Keyboardist by Down Beat Magazine, composed much of the music on Layers of Chance as part of the Chamber Music America New Works commission he received in 2006. Jazz Times Magazine describes Dapp Theorys remarkable chemistry . . . [as] . . . so impeccable, its practically a musical Unied Field Theory. The idea behind Dapp Theory is to create complete musical compositions that groove as hard as they express melodic and poetic lyricism. Andy Milne Milne formed the band in 1998 as a vehicle to tell passionate stories, promote peace and inspire collective responsibility towards uplifting the human spiritual condition. Since then, the band has evolved and built a loyal following, in large part due to their commitment to grass-roots touring, an ideology more often associated with indie rock bands. Dapp Theorys style is indenable yet highly recognizable, blending inuences ranging from Joni Mitchell and KRS One to Thelonious Monk and Van Halen. The concert will start promptly at 7pm and will end at 9:30pm. Royal T will be serving its signature Japanese fusion tapas and an eclectic variety of beers, wines and sakes starting at 6pm.
