Emergency Group: May 16, 2023 Tubby’s (Kingston, NY)

May 31, 2023

Emergency Group plays jazz. But they also don’t play jazz at all. There are obvious reference points to 70s electric jazz but it’s boring to stop there; let’s add some progressive rock, some free improv and a sprinkling of post rock. The Brooklyn-based quartet brought all those influences and laid them bare on the stage at Tubby’s to close out an excellent evening of music courtesy of Island House Recordings

It took all of 90 seconds for the band to find a perch to launch from as drummer Andreas Brade sends the band pummeling forward. This began a 2-song 40+ minute ride so hot guitarist Jonathan Byerley was forced to play in a tank top and then apology to the crowd for “doing kind of a Bob Weir thing”. Electric piano leads and crunchy riffs buoyed by hypnotic bass lines and drumming equally prepared for fusion or hard rock; National Health or Spooky Tooth. Pick your poison. For the encore the band invited Seawind of Battery to join in. The already expansive playing took an atmospheric turn with the addition of Mike Horn’s looped guitar and Jarrod Annis’s lap steel. 

Emergency Group has a show on July 23 with Tacoma Park at Mama Tried. Additionally, they are heading into the studio in July for new music produced by Chris Schlarb! All money spent on their Bandcamp is going directly towards that recording budget so, I implore you, dig deep. A Schlarb/Emergency Group collab is a truly exciting proposal. 

I recorded this from my usual spot by the soundboard with the MBHO’s and a board feed from Tubby’s FOH engineer Kyle. Enjoy!
