Realistic Orchestra is composed of many of the San Francisco Bay Area’s finest musicians. Collectively, their studio and live credits read everywhere from Ratdog and Santana to Zion-I and Lyrics Born. The instrumentation of Realistic Orchestra is based on a century old classic ensemble known as the “Big Band” or “Jazz Orchestra” which includes 13 horns and a rhythm section of drums, upright bass and keyboards. adding to this foundation is guitar, electric bass, electronics, guest DJs, guest vocalists and the one and only Dublin, whose collaborations with the band are unlike any other Hip-Hop on the planet. These elements, combined with modern electronic influenced grooves, epic arrangements and cutting-edge jazz improvisation, create the distinct and unmistakable sound of the Realistic Orchestra.
Realistic has also received wide recognition for its 6 year run on the first Tuesday of every month at “Jazz Mafia Tuesdays” at Bruno’s in San Francisco’s Mission District including winning SF Weekly’s “Best of the Bay” award for Jazz Band in 2004. In 2005 Realistic started presenting various tribute shows which occur many times a year around the birthdays of musical legends, past and present, which have grown to be sold out shows as well as being awarded Best of the Bay for “Best Live Music Weekly Night” in 2006 and 2007.
