Yogoman Burning Band
September 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$2 – $100.00
Band Leader/Conductor/Songwriter Jordan Rain/YOGOMAN is a world-class drummer and highly dynamic singer who leads his band from the drum kit. Rain formed YOGOMAN Burning Band in 2005 to bring musical sunshine to his often rainy Pacific Northwest region by way of his original mix of Jamaican and New Orleans Dance Riddims. YOGOMAN Burning Band engages and compels audiences to get up and dance with shout-outs, sing a long, and call and response lyrics, bringing to mind artists such as Toots & The Maytals, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, Bob Marley, James Brown, and the Meters. YOGOMAN’s music removes the barriers between the audience, entertainers, and the industry, making it a community party.
Aiming to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds through vibrant dance music, Rain is building off the rhythmic foundation of his favorite music from around the globe coupled with his innate sense of harmony. From beats to melodies to lyrics, Rain communicates primarily with energy and intuition along with his voice and cues from the drum set to the YOGOMAN Burning Band players and audience simultaneously, making each performance a new experience.
YOGOMAN Burning Band travels widely to play festivals, private parties, weddings, and anywhere a celebration is needed. YOGOMAN Burning Band is internationally recognized for a ridiculously fun and top-quality musical experience. Rain’s aim is to travel to as many places as he can with YOGOMAN Burning Band, spreading as much love and community through music as possible in his life, with his family and friends.
