The Evening Muse Presents: Electric Kif, GrayScale Whale

Electric Kif are a power quartet of grumpy children exploring instrumental groove based music. As Florida's most in-demand upcoming fusion quartet, they have quickly garnered the attention of the live music scene. They come together creatively from very different backgrounds. Eric Escanes on guitar is from Bordeaux, France, Rodrigo Zambrano on bass is from Mexico City, Jason Matthews on on keys proudly hails from Philadelphia, and Armando Lopez on drums from Miami. Their training and experience combined was bound to generate something special…but their energy and dedication has taken Electric Kif to another level.

They have been honored to be selected for the inaugural Ground Up Music Festival, Rochester International Jazz Festival, Miami Downtown Jazz Festival, and more. Performance highlights have also included opening for artists including Stanley Jordan, Snarky Puppy, Ghost-Note, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Motet and many others. They have also had some fantastic guest appearances at their monthly Miami residencies with Cory Henry, Michael League, Roosevelt Collier, Mark Lettieri, and other top notch musicians.

This fall Electric Kif release a new album JEFE.

“…this power quartet [will] become the “next” thing on the national scene”

- Ground Up Music


- Miami New Times

"With a tight dynamic attack and blend, the Miami-based Electric Kif offers up the challenge of jazz fusion without the confusion. It’s high spirited and extremely high energy but doesn’t seem hell-bent on confounding as others may do."

- Rochester City Paper (Rochester International Jazz Festival)



A body of fluid, focused sound refined from a sea of raw, relentless energy: GrayScale Whale takes its players and listeners on a sonic voyage. Seamlessly transitioning between highs and lows, the group performs energetic, eclectic, and tastefully spontaneous modern fusion. Their sound is a colorful patchwork of influences incorporating the intense groove of Snarky Puppy, artful dexterity of Weather Report, and compositional theming of Belá Fleck & the Flecktones. Holding the patchwork together are the deep roots of American jazz, to which the band stays true through improvisation and exploration of instrumental textures. The colors of the band’s sound act in tandem and balance; for every bright yellow outburst of excitement, there is a deep blue moment of introspection, and for every hue that the listener is familiar with, a brand-new shade shines through that drives the sound into another direction. For each performance there is a fresh experience, and no two ever are the same.
