Breaking Biscuits brought their two great tastes–the Disco Biscuits‘ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner together with Break Science‘s keyboardist Borahm Lee and drummer Adam Deitch (also from Lettuce)–for a deep cut set of electronica, jazz, funk and hip-hop covers at the 2018 edition of the Purple Hatter’s Ball. While the futuristic supergroup has only had the chance to collaborate a handful of times, they never fail to astound and cause the crowd to get down and dirty. Their set at the Purple Hatter’s Ball even included a sit-in with sacred steel master Roosevelt Collier who kicked their cover of Prince‘s “1999” to religious heights!
All of this funky music was being made for the best of causes. The Purple Hatter’s Ball was founded to keep the memory of a fallen friend to the Florida music scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, alive and well. Though the story of her death is a true tragedy, the way the community has rallied behind the efforts to ensure her fate never befalls another is one of the more moving stories in the festival world. You can donate to The Rachel Morningstar Foundation HERE and then check out the two extended clips of Breaking Biscuits jamming tunes from BADBADNOTGOOD, Eddy Henderson and Daft Punk below. Enjoy!
