The Bean Project
October 5, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10 – $12
From the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne come The Bean Project, a vibrant brass clad quintet blending the woody sounds of folk and jazz with the groove and bounce of funk and soul – most aptly described as ‘the odd marriage of James Taylor and The Cat Empire’.
In June 2017, The Bean Project teamed up with David Carr at Rangemaster Studios to record their debut album ‘Naked Trees.’ Like a good whisky, ‘Naked Trees‘ is strong, woody and rich, makes you think about your life and gives you a bubbling desire to dance. Swaying from enthusiastic groovy numbers such as ‘Gaps’ to tear-jerking singer-songwriter ballads such as ‘Never Been More Alone,’ the album is a diverse collection of 10 songs inspired by jazz, funk, country and pop, played by an equally as diverse cast of musicians from different musical sensibilities.
As is tradition in young bands, one of the founding members, Bryce, left the band to pursue other goals. After a short period of stagnancy, a short period of inspiration and then a prolific out-pour of new music, Ben reformed the band with Isaac Gunnoo on bass, Maddison Carter on drums, Jared Becker on tenor sax and Callum Mintzis on trombone.
