Ben sat down with Brett Campbell of Williamette Week in Portland, OR while we were at the PDX Jazz Festival this week to chat about the challenges of expanding outside the jazz box, playing rock clubs and how he’d define Kneebody’s undefinable sound.

Kaveh is featured in this months issue of French bass magazine Bassiste Magazine. He talks about the bass, his life in music and a lot about Kneebody.
Our Nate Wood has been featured in the March issue of Modern Drummer magazine. It seems like only yesterday when Kneebody would rehearse in the house Nate shared with drummer Charlie Paxson and issues of the magazine were strewn everywhere. Check out the March issue for a great interview.
We are excited to making another trip to the Northwest. This time we will be guest artists at the Oregon Jazz Festival, hosted by the University of Oregon and Lane Community College. Shane and Kaveh will guest with the LCC and UO big bands on the 24th and then Kneebody will do a special quartet show on the 25th.
