MSG Phish After-Party!!! B.B. King’s in Times Square! Hayley Jane And The Primates Do BOWIE!

Hayley Jane And The Primates are very excited to host a CEG Present’s Phish After Party at the legendary B.B. King’s Club! We will also be joined on a couple tunes by Shira Elias of Turkuaz and James Casey of Trey Anastasio Band! 2016 was such a sad year for the music world. We lost Prince, Sharon Jones, Leon Russel, Bernie Worrell, Phife Dog and Maurice White (among many others) in what can only be described as a tragic year. Perhaps the biggest loss of 2016 was David Bowie. The beloved rock ‘n’ roll icon spent years cultivating one of the best and most consistent catalogs in music, constantly delivering top-shelf material that continued to blow our minds with his final album, Blackstar, released just two days before his untimely death. On Wednesday, December 28th, Hayley Jane and The Primates will bring a raucous tribute to the “Thin White Duke” to the cozy confines of BB King’s Blues Club, giving fans one more opportunity to celebrate the life and music of the great David Bowie before bringing the awful year that was 2016 to a close on a high note.

Hayley Jane & The Primates Announce Brooklyn Bowl Show Supporting TAUK Album Release!!!

We are pleased to announce our next Brooklyn Bowl show! We will be playing on Saturday September 17th supporting TAUK. This will be night 2 of TAUK’s album release run at the BK Bowl and will also feature Upright Man opening the night. The first night, Sept 16th, will feature lespecial.

TAUK w/ Hayley Jane and the Primates and Upright Man at Brooklyn Bowl_Night 2

On their third studio album Sir Nebula, TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Revealing both their refined musicality and unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece (guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist/organist Alric “A.C.” Carter, and drummer Isaac Teel) push into new sonic terrain and build entire worlds within each richly textured soundscape.

From the hazy atmospherics of “Time’s Up” and soaring riffs of “Program Select” to the urgent rhythms of “Shenanigans” and sprawling melodies of “Where You Are,” Sir Nebula finds TAUK introducing a cosmically inspired element to their music. “The album ended up taking on a more ambient kind of vibe than anything we’ve done before—there’s a spaciness in the songs that lets you get lost in the sound,” says Dolan. And while the album is endlessly hypnotic, TAUK also deliver the dynamic tension-and-release jams that have helped earn them a devoted following while drawing critical acclaim (the Washington Post, for one, praised TAUK for “creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that—thanks to a penchant for improv—offers limitless possibilities”).

As with their past four releases, TAUK created Sir Nebula in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal). But in a departure from their previous work, the band made the album in one concentrated period rather than spacing the recording sessions out in between tours. Holing up at the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles, often pulling 12-hour workdays, TAUK ultimately found the revamped recording process hugely beneficial. “Everything just happened so naturally this time around,” says Jalbert. “I can’t think of one moment where it felt like anything was forced. We were all just completely focused and in the same mindset, which made it this incredibly fun and smooth experience.”
