Rare Blend – Rock Jazz Fusion
Rare Blend is where rock, jazz, fusion, and world music collide! This statement definitively sums up the instrumental music group, now in their 12th year. Theirs is a journey that started during the independent music revolution, and that has no intention of slowing down.
Pulling from a variety of influences and musical styles to write unique instrumental arrangements, Rare Blend’s music appeals to purists as well as those who embrace a progressive multi-genre approach to original music. They continue to receive favorable press reviews, radio airplay, perform at a variety of concerts and outdoor festivals, and have been invited to be included on regional and national compilation discs. Because of their diversity and growing catalog of music, Rare Blend can be found performing on bills that range from Jazz to jam band, fusion to progressive rock. They have shared bills or have opened for the likes of David Sanborn, Special EFX, Tunnels, Dark Star Orchestra, Kevin Eubanks, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Spyro Gyra, Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius, and Los Lobos.
