Aberdeen is a jazz / indie rock brass band based out of Brooklyn, NY. They create a wall of sound with soaring, horn-driven melodies, supported by a bed of distorted guitars and raucous drums. Brian Plautz is the primary songwriter in the band, along with Alex Conroy and Shubh Saran. The band, featuring saxophones, trombone, trumpet, two guitars, bass and drums never ceases to fill a room with energy. Aberdeen's 2019 debut album Downpour showcases their massive, one-of-a-kind sound, featuring Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Bob Reynolds (John Mayer, Snarky Puppy) and bassist Adam Neely, who hosts a 1 million+ subscriber music channel on YouTube. Demonstrated during Aberdeen's 2019 U.S. State Department tour to Central Asia, Aberdeen's music is about community; a large collective of musicians with the hope of sharing its music to audiences throughout the world.

Avant George


Avant George is the brainchild of Jared Yee, the infamous saxophonist with Aberdeen, Sungazer, Shubh Saran, Evolfo, Apartment Sessions and Danae Greenfield. Avant George is an inventive exploration of tenor saxophone loops, textures and burning diminished licks, guaranteed to introduce you to the saxophone in a way you’ve never heard it before. Avant George will feature saxophonist Jared Yee, drummer Zach Mullings and bassist Adam Neely.
