From the jazz club to the dancefloor, CHURCH is a musical journey of no boundaries and endless surprises. Globetrotting musician MARK de CLIVE-LOWE leads live sets interpolating jazz, improv, live remixing, beats and dancefloor electronica into a melting pot of sounds and styles unlike any other. Joined by a stellar cast of musicians, vocalists, DJs and spontaneous guests from LA and beyond, each and every month is a totally unique and individual music-lover’s experience…

CHURCH is a whirlwind mix of live jazz, sampling and a DJ set. Fast becoming the discerning music-lovers’ and musicians’ event of choice, don’t be surprised if you spot the likes of Master at Work Louie Vega or soul legend Leon Ware in the audience; Chris “Daddy” Dave, MC John Robinson or Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on the stage and the likes of Ge-Ology on the decks. The first live set showcases the jazz side of MdCL, blending standards, groove explorations and classic trio interplay with resampling, electronics and live remixing. As the first set draws to a close, the guest DJ takes over, preparing the crowd for MdCL to flip the script with the second set – a unique blend of live electronica and live remixing – the jazz club colliding head to head with the dance floor. Previous installments in Los Angeles and New York have featured talented artists such as Rich Medina, Jose James, Jean Grae, N’Dea Davenport, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Jaleel Shaw and DJ Spinna performing to capacity crowds.

CHURCH is coming to Oakland… right on time. Blessed.
