The Landon Knoblock Realistic Band performs music composed entirely on a 1987 Radio Shack Realistic Concertmate 650 Sampling Keyboard. Blurring the lines between jazz, avant-garde, rock, and ambient, the group invents a new sound that is exciting and organic. Composition and improvisation seamlessly merge, tugging your heartstrings in a sensitive fashion or ruthlessly melting your face. Featuring Loren Stillman and Noah Preminger on saxophones, Matt Pavolka on bass, Jeff Davis on drums, and Landon Knoblock on rhodes.
