Genr8r is an urban-styled, jazz-crossover “groove big band” featuring Grammy-winning, all-star LA musicians. Band members regularly tour and record with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Stevie Wonder, Kamasi Washington, Stanley Clarke, Diana Ross and numerous renowned artists spanning jazz, funk, R&B, soul and hip-hop. Genr8r draws inspiration from all these genres. Their musical quest: a “funkonomically designed” multi-genre blend to inspire joy and makes the body groove! This “groove big band” includes: Ian Roller (sax/compositions), Aaron Janik (trumpet), Alex Csillag (trombone), Sam Barsh (keys/synth), Deen Anbar (guitar), Zephyr Avalon (bass), Gianluca Palmieri (drums).

Sam Barsh: 3-time Grammy Keyboardist/Composer/Producer, Barsh composed Kendrick Lamar’s “Institutionalized”, Anderson .Paak’s “Heart Don’t Stand a Chance” and “Your Prime”, Aloe Blacc’s “The Man”, and several more notable songs.

Tamir Grinberg: “Tamir’s voice soars and captivates attention — like Michael Jackson!” He hit LA from Tel Aviv with a big splash. He recently released EP “InWaters”
