Ripe

Friday, March 1, 2019, 4:00 AM


with Brook and the Bluff
On a primal level, we react to music through movement.A head-nod, a foot-tap, or a handclap certainly shows appreciation, but dancing seals the eternal bond between audience and musician. Siphoning the spirits of rock, funk, R&B, jazz, and pop through a kaleidoscope of unpredictable and virtuosic improvisation, Boston-based seven-piece Ripe consistently bring people to their feet. Most importantly, they prove that dance music in its purest form doesnt have to come from computers and synthesizers. It can be an unstoppable groove or an extended moment of ecstatic release. Like those bodies moving on the floor, its the result of the energy, friction, and communication between living and breathing people. An inimitable and indefinable chemistry has separated and singled out Ripe since day one. Subverting any and all standard genre boundaries once again, their latest offering confidently continues that tradition. These seven musical soulmates Robbie Wulfsohn [vocals], Tory Geismar [guitar], Jon Becker [guitar], Sampson Hellerman [drums], Josh Shpak [trumpet], Calvin Barthel [trombone], and Nadav Shapira [bass]once again incite listeners to move on their independent full-length debut, Joy In The Wild Unknown. What we make is music you can dance to, affirms Robbie. Were drawn to the peak of a songthe emotional catharsis when everything comes out. Its all about reaching that moment. The revelation comes back to us when bodies shake with joy.Every time we play, something unique happens, adds Jon. Youll never see the same show twice. We want to bring that unexpected element into the pop sphere.Ripe brings the swagger of funk filtered through a rock anthem, a musical journey that somehow gets as stuck in your head as your favorite pop banger. Were gap bridgers, adds Tory. If youve never heard us, I like to describe our music as, If Maroon 5 and Earth, Wind, & Fire had a baby.
