Acoustic Asylum explores all kinds of musical vibes that are exciting and challenging. Here, they’re free to play without studio tricks, without a bunch of pedals or synthesizers… just free to make grooving organic music. Each of them brings decades of study, hours of inspired listening and their natural good humor to make music that’s fun to play, fun to listen to and stretches boundaries without offending the listeners’ sensibilities. You’ll hear influences from Jazz, Funk, Klezmer, Americana and Popall mashed up by some of Los Angeles’s finest musicians. They’re not sure if they’re finding “Asylum” or in an “Asylum.” Either way, they bring the audience along with them.
