The four members of Background Orcs combine musical styles and feels from around the globe to deliver a high-energy atmosphere for listeners as well as keep them on their toes with a unique sound that defies normal categorization. While some have attempted to package the Orcs' sound with brands such as "Deep Pocket Immersive Groove" or "Heady Psychedelic Jazz Fusion", one must experience the group first hand to grasp their diverse musical directions. Regardless of genre, constant craftsmanship by all four members has been a hallmark of Background Orcs from the very beginning and has led the group to having a formidable presence in the Northeast music scene, sharing stages with artists such as Bernie Worrell, Dopapod, Consider The Source, The New Mastersounds, Rebirth Brass Band, The Nth Power, and many more. In 2014 the Orcs dropped their first full length album Villains. The creative juices are ever flowing, and with enough material already written to record another full album, the Orcs have set their sights on world domination. Be afraid, the Orcs are coming to a town near you.
They will be joined by Hairy Dudini
Self proclaimed modern music tech nerd mixed with an old soul, jazz and roots rock twist, Hairy Dudini has been spotted with many projects. He’s been seen playing everything from old school jazz to samba to reggae to klezmer, and is heavily influenced by the music of Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. He now plays regularly as a sit in with Jah People (roots/reggae), The Phix (hip hop), Spirit World (funk/roots/loops), Butterjive (funk/tribal) as well as heading GD3 (Grateful Dead Tribute) and The Dudini Band (instrumental freaky funk covers) and of course all the while still running his solo loop project.
