Happy Valley Band

This is an Archive of a Past Event

The Happy Valley Band is a cover band like you've never heard before. They play strictly notated machine deconstructions of popular tunes, filtered through the brain of a computer. You'll hear James Brown backed by a simmering Sun Ra Arkestra, Madonna with a jittery freak-out synth rhythm section, and Herb Alpert with a Tijuana Brass that must have been led by Charles Ives. Their debut album ORGANVM PERCEPTVM, five years in the making, will be out on Santa Cruz label Indexical in 2016.
