The finest in dancefloor jazz, super soulful rhythms and futuristic heavyweight funk. Featuring Rick Robertson, saxophonist from d.i.g, the very soulful vocals of Evelyn Duprai, the beats of Ian Mussington and the ever inventive keyboard wizard Gerard Masters.
From the makers of EON.
Ian Mussington Originally from London, where he worked with the likes of Lonnie Liston Smith, Cameo, Stevie Winwood, Courtney Pine, Paul Weller and Steve Williamson, drummer Ian Mussington spent the last five years in the States touring and recording with Soul Asylum. He now resides in Sydney and is laying down wicked beats with a truly international flavour.
Gerard Masters is one of the finest and most innovative young Keyboard players in the Sydney scene. In this lineup he plays keyboard bass as well as Fender Rhodes piano. Just coming off a Missy Higgins tour he’s busting to let the fresh funk fly.
Leading the band, and one of Australia’s foremost exponents of Acid Jazz and Urban Groove, Saxophonist Rick Robertson has a wealth of experience and success being one of the founding members of D.I.G and Eon. He has played all over the world at major festivals and funky clubs from New York to Berlin.
Evelyn Duprai is a true soul diva who has emerged on the scene in style bringing her amazing Aretha Franklin meets Grace Jones vocals to set the place on fire.
Eon Beats Project was formed to play the Sydney club scene and was immediately in demand with a residency at the Coogee Beach Palace, a string of album launches and finished off 2006 right at the centre of things with NYE on the Aquashell Stage at Darling Harbour.. Residencies Thursdays at the Slip Inn and Sundays at the Home Bar has really developed the band into something unique to the point of writing and recording a new album of original material featuring Evelyn Duprai on vocals and the wicked beats of Ian Mussington on Drums. Sold out gigs at the Basement in Sydney, featured spots at the Darling Harbour Jazz Festival, and the release of “Ready To Blow” on BBQ Republic Records in January 2006 means this band is steaming ahead. The EBP now regularly performs with 8 or 9 musicians onstage featuring Percussion, DJ, and Horn section. Look out summer 2007.
