Former Matchbox Twenty band member Darren Kramer has proven to be an innovative and talented young musician. With national television appearances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and feature videos such as VH1 Storytellers, his praised debut as a recording artist continues to garner him national attention.
DKO - The Darren Kramer Organization - performs a modern mix of original Funk, Jazz and Latin, while synthesizing a vast variety of grooves and textures. From the powerful driving Funk of Regret to the spicy Latin flavor of Quench, Darren Kramer has capitalized on creating the next generation of cross-over Jazz. This refreshing new music has been compared in quality to The Brecker Brothers and The Chick Corea Elektric Band. Moreover, Kramer''s 10-piece group is continuing the legacy of popular horn bands such as Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, and Tower of Power. The dynamic power of this four-piece horn section blended with cutting-edge male and female vocalists is described as "Fresh, Innovative Funk" by Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Michael Brecker, "and the tune Turbulent Altercation -Wow!"
As fans anxiously anticipate the release of new material, Darren continues to produce award-winning music, including Not Far From Here - a winner in the International John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Experiencing DKO live is not only exciting and entertaining, it is an educational journey through the beauty and power of music.
