A family band to some degree. Steve and I have been working on music together since i was 2. I am a part of a rotating line up that he tours with which include Bernie Worrell (P-Funk // Talking Heads), Andy Hess (John Scofield UberJam), George Porter Jr. (The Meters // David Byrne), Dan Leboitz (ALO), Ron Johnson (Greg Allman), and many more.
“Our Griffins’ music is powerful and spacious,” he says, “and Brown’s penetrating voice reveals a kid who grew up struggling with his identity, a gentle introvert, much happier to observe the behavior of others, than to speak out loud about himself.” Band Members Include DJ Brown, Alex Luquet, Travis Hobbie, and myself.
Our Griffins “Michael Boyd” is out now and was composed entirely by DJ Brown //Produced by Todd Shied and includes Brad Kunkle on bass, Eric Slick (Dr. Dog//Norwegian Arms) Drums, Luming Hao – Guitar, Jaron Olevsky – Organ, and Traivs Hobbie Guitar//Vox.
The Everyone Orchestra
The Everyone Orchestra is conducted by Matt Butler and includes some of the finest musicians on the planet in my opinion. Reggie Watts, Youssoupha Sidebe, Kai Eckhardt, Jamie Janover, Brad Barr, Members of Phish, Moe, The Grateful Dead just to name a few. Look it up…but better yet just show up. Its something you need to see live to understand.
Keller & The Kimocks
Musical participation includes Keller Williams, Steve Kimock, and myself. Keller uses us as tools in his magical looping world. We perform songs by Keller Williams, Daft Punk, The Grateful Dead, as well as improvising our faces off. Only a few shows per year.
