Joomanji

Aug 12, Saturday - 5:15pm
SJZ Boom Box Stage

Formed in 2010 by three multi-faceted instrumentalists at the University of California Santa Cruz,  Joomanji’s musical blend is a unique mix of crisp horns, smooth vocals, and groovy vinyl samples grounded by a tight rhythm section.

The group was founded by Jonah Christian, Amir Oosmna and Robert Finucane, who all met while studying Jazz and Electronic Music.  Since relocating to Los Angeles, the group now features Lindsay Olsen, Austin Antoine and Joseph Salcedo.   The group has collaborated with Devin the Dude, Carlitta Durand, and Chris Young the Rapper among others, and their productions pair live instrumentation with vinyl sample chops.

Their first release, MANJ, gained the attention of numerous musical blogs, including FACT Mgazine, Earmilk, BamaLoveSoul, and Pigeons & Planes. The album hit number one on Bandcamp’s Neo-Soul and Nu-Jazz charts, and was placed on Reddit’s official best of 2013 “ListentoThis” list.
