Bay Area vocal powerhouse and baritone saxophonist, Sally Green formed her band, Sal’s Greenhouse to get the listeners shaking and showcase her more than considerable talents in an original music setting.
Sal’s Greenhouse built an impressive body of original music with a varied blend of influences like Nikka Costa, Brand New Heavies, Sharon Jones, and many more, resulting in a completely unique and original funky and soulful sound that feels good and moves its fast growing audience.
Founded in 2012 by Daniel Casares (sax and vocals) and Max Cowan (keyboards and vocals), Atta Kid’s mission is to create a musical bridge between the precise chaos of East Bay Funk and the contagious lilt of the sounds of New Orleans. In February of 2017 year, Atta Kid applied this approach to trumpeter Lee Morgan’s iconic album, The Sidewinder, for two sold-out shows at the SF Jazz Center. Music for the brain and the booty. Watch and listen and get hooked.
