Celebrate 18 years of genre-exploding musical exploits by this “multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’s On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’s moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland” (Rolling Stone).

Founded by Village Voice icon Greg “Ironman” Tate and co-led with monster groove bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, New York City’s Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is a “fleet-footed big band” (Rolling Stone) whose prodigious personnel and adherence to Butch Morris’s “Conduction” system of music creation allows them to freely juggle a wide swath of the soul, jazz, hip-hop, rock, and avant-garde spectrums. With alumni including Melvin Van Peebles, Matana Roberts, Vijay Iyer, and Julia Kent, the current crew revolves around Shelley Nicole, Mikel Banks, Lisala, Ben Tyree, Julie Brown, Asim Barnes, LaFrae Sci, Lewis “Flip” Barnes, V. Jeffery Smith, Avram Fefer, “Moist” Paula Henderson, Leon Gruenbaum, JS Williams, and Andre Lassalle.
