Jazz Mafia's MOBtet

This ensemble features the hottest emerging talent in multi-instrumental and multi-genre performance in the Bay Area. Not only does the group blend a wide array of musical styles, but they also bring the audience on a musical expedition by creating vastly different sound worlds for each song through the use of various instrumentation and electronic sounds. This approach mixed with high level improvisation and solid songwriting is the MOBtet sound.

Members of the band fulfill numerous roles and play at least two instruments. In any given MOBtet set, you'll hear trombone, trumpet, saxes, flute, didgereedoo, conch shells, electronics, samplers, bass, synths/organ/keyboards, drums, and vocals.

Adam Theis has led this quartet at numerous festivals around the Bay Area including: KCSM's Jazz on the Hill, Healdsburg Jazz Festival, and the San Jose Jazz Festival. The band has also opened for sold out club shows including a two night run with Robert Glasper.
