Safety Squad

Forming in 2015, Safety Squad started as a ten piece Snarky Puppy cover band, and over the last four years the personnel and sound has changed drastically. Now Safety Squad rocks a five-to-seven piece outfit and plays original music by bandleader and composer Danny Bauer. With 2 albums available online and a third to be released by the end of 2019, Safety Squad is a force in the modern jazz world to be reckoned with. The Squad plays a genre of music they call Adventure Jazz - a dynamic blend of jazz, funk, rock, video game music and everything in-between. Watch out for the Safety Squad national tour to happen in 2020


”Watching Safety Squad onstage was a unique experience. The performance left the crowd, myself included, begging for more. This prompted them to deliver an absolutely electrifying encore performance. I think everyone went home happy and musically fulfilled after that.” - Weird Music Concert Review ​ ”Into The Danger Zone is six monstrous tracks that are highly recommended for modern jazz and groove fans, especially fans of band favorites like Snarky Puppy and Vulfpeck, and anyone that enjoys masterfully-played tunes with adventurous twists and turns.” -Andrew Patton Jazz Columbus

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
