The Jazz Mechanics

Based in downtown San Jose, The Jazz Mechanics have emerged from their machine shop, crafting a new modern voice in Jazz. This hopped up trio expands the genre of improvisational music, performing largely original compositions that draw on a variety of influences including bebop jazz, R&B grooves and Balkan melodies. Laying down the foundation for the band's hard hitting force and reinventing the role of acoustic bass, is bass player and composer Endika. On keys is Brian Ho, who is also the leader of the funky Brian Ho Quartet. Back on the traps, and down in the grease pit, drummer Michael Brilliot brings a rhythmic toolbox to the band that is grounded in diversity of styles, from jazz and New Orleans based funk and rhythm and blues to roots rock and country. Together these three Jazz Mechanics are a finely tuned jazz machine that infuse rock and roll energy into their performances and draw the audience in for a rich and dynamic experience.
