Milkbread formed in early 2010 with one main focus: to create good music with a message. They take the best elements of hip-hop, R&B, and other contemporary styles and combine them with the principles of jazz to create the best music and groove possible. Being all current or former students of music at the collegiate level, every member has an unfathomable dedication to the music that they craft together under the Milkbread name. They seamlessly shift from fast moving, soulful jazz/hip-hop, to hard hitting, empowering, arena-esque rock, to extended funk jams, and everything in between.
By the end of a Milkbread set, no audience member is left unsatisfied, or wondering why they came. In addition to the packed dance floor, a fun and exhilarating staple of every show, the sheer power of the music itself is overwhelming. It is energetic, passionate, and ultimately, for all involved in the crowd, unifying. Their shows have been compared to everything from intimate club-style sessions to crazed block parties. Armed with horns, guitars, drums, keyboards, and varying vocal styles, the members of Milkbread are focused on moving music forward and creating something that is both thought provoking and emotionally moving. This is a new, exciting, and unique group, primed and ready. This is Milkbread.
