Local Spins Wednesday: Lushh

May 8 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Join Lushh as they celebrate the release of their first full length album!!!

Lushh is an electronic jazz band based out of Kalamazoo, MI. The band has been together since late 2015, after meeting through the Jazz Studies program at Western Michigan University. While merging their jazz roots with more modern and contemporary styles, Lushh draws their influences from the likes of Kneebody, Donny McCaslin, Hiatus Kaiyote and much more. After being named finalists for the Under 25 Students Category of the 7 Virtual Jazz Club global online jazz competition, Lushh took 10th place. For two years in a row, Lushh was named Best Group in the Blues/Pop/Rock category of Downbeat Magazine’s Student Awards (2017/2018). Guitarist, Andrew Saliba, won the 2016 Best Soloist in the Blues/Pop/Rock category on our recording of Great Fairy’s Fountain Theme.

Lushh frequently performs around the Midwest, particularly in Michigan, collaborating with various musicians and artists. In addition to performing, Lushh teaches masterclasses at local Michigan high schools. Recently, Lushh performed at the Audiotree Music Festival in Kalamazoo, MI. In March 2019, Lushh will be collaborating with a visual projection designer to debut the Archangel Suite, a multimedia work combining music and live-triggered projection art. The band has finished recording their debut album and is currently working on mixing and mastering it. The album, ready to cultivate a regional and national audience, is slated for release in April 2019.

Local Spins Wednesdays are presented by Local Spins, SpeakEZ Lounge, Perrin Brewing Company and WYCE, with Michigan beer specials on tap and free parking in the small city lot kitty-corner to the south on Monroe Avenue NW or in the Sixth Street Park lot just to the north.
