Frank Irwin Quintet & Double Dash
June 17, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$8
“Seamlessly blending a myriad of styles, soundscapes, and instrumentation, percussionist Machado Mijiga and keyboardist Dario LaPoma join forces to become the dynamic duo Double Dash, bridging the worlds of electronic music and jazz. With influences ranging from Bjork to Beethoven, A Tribe Called Quest to Tribal Tech Tones, or John Coltrane to John Cage, DoubleDash pushes the boundaries of jazz music to new frontiers, breathing new life into the age-old duo configuration.”
Frank Irwin Quintet:
“Known for evocative melodies, smooth harmonies, and deep grooves, the Frank Irwin Quintet draws experience from the sounds of the Pacific Northwest, bringing a unique flavor to the Portland jazz scene. Founded in 2018 by bassist, producer, and composer Chris Frank, his Quintet strives to bring positivity and levity into the lives of its audience members, armed with a dark sense of humor and uplifting sound. Inspired by his work as a middle school teacher, Frank lets the humanity of music shine through his compositions and arrangements, embracing a songbook that takes listeners through an eclectic array of genres, from fusion to show tunes, all told through the infinite idiom of Black American Music.”
