Washington DC based The UpBeets are a creative and high-energy modern jazz quintet performing songs from multiple genres, time periods, and artists.
The UpBeets are known for performing classic jazz songs but with modern arrangements and playing new, innovative jazz fusion charts that are fun to play and hear (and often get the audience on their feet, dancing in the aisles – and sometimes on the tables!).
A typical The UpBeets set may include some redesigned classic rock, pop, jazz, and R&B tunes (everything from modern renditions of classic Horace Silver favorites to hard driving Dave Weckl Group charts, popular Tower of Power songs, or even a Jethro Tull tune done as if Dave Brubeck might have helped with the arrangement). The UpBeets’ primary goal is to make the musical event fun, exciting, entertaining, and even a little unpredictable (but in a good way)!
