Born in the muddy waters of south Louisiana, the boys from Captain Green are cooking up a sonic gumbo good enough to slap yo’ mama. Get you a heaping spoonful of psych-drenched neofunk. It's the truth smothered in gravy.

Captain Green features Ross Hoppe (Keyboards), Robert Kilng (Bass), Darin Jones (Tenor and Baritone Sax), David Melancon (Trumpet and Flugelhorn), Grant Hudson (Guitar), and Michael Harris (Drums). They have been a part of music festivals such as Bear Creek Music Festival, Revolution Fest, Suwannee Disc Jam, Bay Fest, Secret Stages, and Radiopalooza and have graced the stage with acts such as George Porter Jr., Rebirth Brass Band, Bernie Worrell, Cope, Snarky Puppy, Particle, and Bill Summers.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
