Electric Squeezebox Orchestra
The Electric Squeezebox Orchestra is a 17 piece big band based in San Francisco that plays music composed and arranged by its members. Led by trumpeter Erik Jekabson, the band currently consists of Erik, Henry Hung, Darren Johnston, Doug Morton and Dave Scott on trumpets, Rob Ewing, Danny Lubin-Laden, Patrick Malabuyo and Richard Lee on trombones, Sheldon Brown and Larry Delacruz on alto saxes, Mike Zilber and Marcus Stephens on tenor saxes, Charlie Gurke on baritone sax, and the rhythm section of Dan Zemelman, piano; Jordan Samuels, guitar; Tommy Folen, bass; and Hamir Atwal, Alan Hall and Eric Garland rotating on drums. However, you'll catch many of the Bay Area's top jazz musicians subbing into the band every week. The band's debut CD "Cheap Rent" is available on the OA2 record label.

Ben Goldberg's Brainchild is an occasional group of around 12 musicians who gather to carry out instructions I make up on the spot and whisper in their ears. Over the years the group has included John Schott, Steve Adams, Carla Kihlstedt, Ches Smith, David Euwell, Matt Brubeck, William Winant, Scott Amendola, Will Bernard, and many others. There have been many memorable moments, musical and otherwise, including Scott lying on the floor of the Paradise Lounge, Matt gamely attempting to respond to the instruction "hypotenuse! hypotenuse!", narrowly-averted mayhem by Mr. Winant at Beanbenders, and the choreographer Joe Goode reciting all the five-syllable words he could think of.
