The weather was hot. I wore skort, top and no sweater or wrap, which would have been handy with the air conditioning going..

Soooo good! A funny, crazy and amazing show, and the Triple Door is a really nice venue. 7:30 is way too early for that kind of jazz though- the band joked that it was still light outside when they wrapped up their encore!

Quotes & Highlights

“They play loose, they play fun, and they play to make you move. There’s never been a jazz album that sounded like this, but Sex Mob have been in a league of their own for some time now.” —All Music Guide
“Sex Mob is the courageous, ingenious, invigorating canvas on which bandleader Steven Bernstein paints mad jazz for the masses…everything you could ask for in genre-defying, up-to-the-minute jazz.” —Popmatters

The band will come together with DJ Olive to play the album Sexotica, their innovative revisiting of the “exotica” genre, popular in the 1950s, with a lot of grooves, rhythmical loops, and both shrilling and atmospheric solos that shall warm you up from the inside and outside!

Sexotica is Sex Mob’s homage to Martin Denny and the sound of Exotica, but don’t go in expecting a Quiet Village. Instead, it seems like the idea was to create their own very personal soundworld, much the way Denny did, but using different tools and sounds. In many ways, it’s just another step in a logical progression for Sex Mob. They’ve never been afraid of using studio tricks; previous releases were co-produced by Scotty Hard who added some of his own sonic treatments, but this time out the entire album is a full-on collaboration between the production team of Good and Evil (Danny Blume and Christian Castagno) and the band, where the music and production are practically equal players.
