Kollega Kollega

Band line up - DAVE SHOOTER - bass & pedalboard, laptop and controllers; LERØY LUPTØN - synthesiser, guitar, laptop controllers; MATT ROBINSON - tenor saxophone; BEN MCCABE - drums

Kollega are a quartet from the North West of England who play original music. At Kollega HQ we are inspired and motivated by fusing technology and contemporary sounds into our music alongside acoustic and electric instruments. The tunes are underpinned by big grooves and processed bass sitting beneath insistent tenor saxophone and lush analogue synths with loops and samples providing lots of sweet additional sonic interest. We believe that the studio and live outputs of the band should reflect each other while providing different and complementary experiences. Studio recordings are beautifully produced and live performances feature plenty of space for communication and improvisation. We want to make music that is a mixture of grunt for dancing and head-stuff for listening.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
