John Moon delivers his words over the music of Andy Milne’s Dapp Theory group on stage at Tulas Sat Oct 25th

Andy Milne’s Dapp Theory blends “contemporary funk, groove and hip-hop into jazz with such seamless, casual precision it’s almost freaky.” (LA Weekly). Keyboardist Milne’s gifted ensemble includes poet John Moon, saxophonist Loren Stillman, bassist Chris Tordini, and drummer Kenny Grohowski. Influenced by Joni Mitchell, KRS One, Thelonious Monk, and Van Halen, Dapp Theory has amassed a loyal following of fans. Milne, a finalist in the Down Beat rising star keyboardist poll category in 2004, was awarded the Chamber Music America “New Works” commission in 2006. Milne’s band mates, who also have impressive
resumes, have worked with some of the top names in jazz today. Established in 1998, Dapp Theory has released three albums, including Layers of Chance on Contrology Records last April.
