HELPING PHRIENDLY ORCHESTRA
Founded in July 2010, Helping Phriendly Orchestra shows are built on the extensive, intensive and playful catalog of Phish. HPO revisits full Phish shows in their entirety or plays “phantasy shows” drawing on Phish’s seemingly never-ending list of tunes.
Each band member is dedicated to learning the intricacies of Phish’s music. At the same time, HPO maintains the improvisational nature of Phish through musical experimentation, exploratory jamming, connecting with each other and our audience.
JASON KANE & THE JIVE
In 2013, Jason Kane started as an acoustic artist, travelling and playing wherever he could with whoever he could. One year later, he crossed paths with bassist Nick Jive and formed Jason Kane & The Jive. In the Spring of 2015, they released their 1st EP and proceeded to tear up the Texas rock scene. Over the course of the next two years, The Jive had the honor to share the stage with many iconic acts, such as Ace Frehley, Moxy, Y&T, Dokken, Uli Jon Roth, and The Winery Dogs.
By 2017, after going through a revolving door of musicians and line-up changes, Jason Kane & The Jive released their self-titled debut album. Combining vintage sounds with modern elements, tracks such as “Courthouse Blues, “Crystal Ball”, and “How I Do” breathed new life into San Antonio’s underground rock n’ roll legion. In September of that year, they joined forces with drummer Thomas Chapoy, completing the line-up and re-enforcing the idea of the “power trio” in rock n’ roll.
In May of 2018, the trio entered the studio to record their sophomore album “Hellacious Boogie”, a ferocious full-throttle rock record fueled with funk, soul, and blues. Two high-energy music videos from the album premiered in the Summer, and the album was subsequently released later that year on October 26th.
The band’s continued determination to create and conquer is possessed by nothing but the music they live, breathe, and love to play. “Brothers and sisters; let me show you where it’s at.” – Jason Kane, Vocals/Guitars
Electrifying groove that will make your soul move. Blues – Rock – Funk – Pop.
