Nik Greeley is arguably one of the best frontmen and performers in Philadelphia, and his band backs him up just as impressively. The super band includes Sam Gutman (keys) and Zach LoPresti (guitar) from Out of the Beardspace, Joe Baldacci on the skins, Andrew Warren on guitar, Freshy behind the bass, and the incredibly enthusiastic Swift Technique horn section, featuring Ian Gray (trombone), Greg Rosen (trumpet), and Jason O’mara (tenor sax).
Nik Greeley & The Operators released their debut EP this spring called Town Gypsy. The band’s energetic live performances include a diverse spectrum of rhythm, blues, jazz, and extreme levels of funk, and is one of the most infectious live music experiences you’ll have. Greeley’s voice can be felt from around the block, and his full brass section will fill any room with contagiously electrifying vibes.
Having shared stages with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Gene Ween, Shuggie Otis, Fishbone, Rusted Root, and more, Nik Greeley & The Operators are looking forward to their next gig with Rebirth Brass Band on 12/29 at The Hall at MP. Tickets available here.
