Pnuma Trio - Wakarusa Music Festival

2007 Artist Lineup

Pnuma Trio

Try this story on for size: three upstarts in Memphis use their classical and jazz training to hammer out beat-driven compositions encompassing the funkiness of the jam scene and the mind-bending progressions of electronica. The young bucks known as Pnuma Trio instantly find themselves in high demand, playing nearly two hundred dates in 2006 alone. The trio bangs out scene-stealing festival plays at Wakarusa and Camp Bisco, gets tapped to provide support for such artists as Buckethead, The Disco Biscuits, and Michael Franti and Spearhead, and fills up clubs and small theatres that most bands reach only after years of toil. Just for style points, they finish up the year with a barn-storming, sold-out tour of Japan including a massive set at the world-famous Nagisa Festival. Yet despite their success, Pnuma Trio hasn’t stopped developing artistically. The new year brings with it a move for the crew – from the rock and roll birthplace of Memphis to their new digs, in the cool mountain air of Boulder, Colorado – but more importantly, for their music. Incorporating the live-processed wizardry of their earlier work, Pnuma Trio is unveiling a new sound for their upcoming tour dates. The new tracks sound like Pac-Man on a rampage, gobbling up Squarepusher discs, washing them down with the atmospheric stylings of LTJ Bukem, and squeezing in a slice of Detroit House for dessert. Don’t miss the show – Pnuma Trio is coming to burn up a dance floor near you. Alex Botwin – Bass Ben Hazlegrove – Keyboards Lane Shaw – Drums
