Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues and modern pop with "impeccably crafted, 60's-steeped soul" (KEXP). The group quickly gained notoriety throughout the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows that feature the powerful vocals of frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), bolstered by the deep pocket of their unmistakably detailed rhythm section, and the spirited melodies of The Honeynut Horns. Hard-hitting but sensitive, The Dip harkens back to the deep soul roots of the decades past and pays tribute to this history through the grit and grace of their performances. The band's 2015 self-titled debut, recorded to tape at Avast! Studios, propelled them to notable appearances at prodigiousfestivals such as Sasquatch! Music Festival, High Sierra Music Fest, Summer Meltdown, and Capitol Hill Block Party as well as built anticipation for their 2016 release, Won't Be Coming Back (EP). Whether young or old, you cant help yourself from grinning ear-to-ear when you see these gentlemen hit the stage. I wouldnt hold back dancing for that matter either! Ladies and gentleman, give it up for The Dip! Hit up the dance floor, and put it in your hip!
Before Zanes band CARNEY (co-lead by brother Reeve Carney) opened for U2, The Black Crowes, Govt Mule and The Veronicas, they headlined shows in 2008 and 2010 at Boom Boom Room here in San Francisco.
After becoming John Mayers Lead/Rhythm Guitar player in 2013 Zane started his own solo project and hes been headlining huge venues (like El Rey Theatre and Mercury Lounge) in LA and NY. Back in SF by popular demand after his sold out show in July, this is a night you don't want to miss!
Bob Lefsetz raved about Zanes Rock band CARNEY, likening the band's sound to a mysterious trip into the heart of darkness. While his original songs are still rooted in the off-centered approach to arranging that defined CARNEY, they lean slightly away from CARNEYs raw and brooding Rock and Roll and more towards Zanes roots in Jazz, Blues, Pop and Orchestral music. Zanes songwriting style is grounded in storytelling and a compelling honesty but while his voice has been compared to that of Jeff Buckley, Zanes songs tend to unwittingly showcase the passion he has for his first love: guitar. Zane Carneys Confluence (Singer-Songwriter EP) and Amalgam (Jazz Guitar Album) are both available Worldwide on the iTunes Music Store.
