About Marmalade

Marmalade is a dynamic musical collective hailing from the vibrant city of Seattle, known for their eclectic and energetic performances. Founded in the early 2000s, the group quickly made a name for itself in the local music scene through its unique blend of funk, soul, and groove music, infused with a spirit of improvisation and a palpable passion for live performance. The band's lineup has been fluid over the years, featuring a rotating cast of talented musicians, but the core ethos of creating an electrifying and inclusive atmosphere at their shows has remained constant. The hallmark of Marmalade's sound lies in their ability to seamlessly blend a variety of musical styles and influences. From the deep, resonant grooves of classic funk to the heart-stirring rhythms of soul, along with elements of hip-hop, jazz, and rock, their music is a testament to the rich tapestry of American musical traditions. This sonic diversity is matched by their live performances, which are known for their spontaneity and energy. Marmalade's shows are more than just concerts; they are communal experiences where the barrier between the performers and the audience dissolves, giving way to a shared celebration of rhythm and movement. Over the years, Marmalade has not only solidified its status in Seattle's music scene but has also garnered attention on a national level. Their dedication to their craft and their commitment to providing an unparalleled live music experience has earned them a loyal following. While they may not have the mainstream recognition of some of their contemporaries, the impact of their music and the memories they create for their audiences are a testament to their significance in the landscape of modern American music. With each performance, Marmalade continues to spread their message of unity, joy, and the transcendent power of a good groove.

About the music

Marmalade's improvisational music is a vibrant testament to the power of instant composition, deeply rooted in the groove-centric ethos of the Seattle music scene. This ensemble, with over two decades of collective experience, crafts music that is not only spontaneously conceived but also inherently danceable. Their performances, often mistaken by listeners for rehearsed pieces due to their polished coherence, epitomize "Groove Music" at its finestβ€”music that is invariably compelling and designed to move. At the heart of Marmalade's sound is an eclectic fusion of Funk, Hip-hop, R&B, Reggae, Afrobeat, Acid Jazz, and Rock influences, which together create a rhythmic foundation that is irresistibly danceable. This blend ensures that each improvisational journey they embark on is rich with dynamic beats and rhythmic hooks that speak directly to the listener's instinct to move. The danceability of their music is a deliberate outcome, a reflection of their intent to not only entertain but to engage the audience in a physical dialogue with the music. The groove is the cornerstone of Marmalade's improvisational ethos, serving not just as a musical element but as the binding force that integrates diverse musical ideas into a coherent, fluid composition. Even as they navigate the spontaneous creation of music, there's a palpable sense of purpose in maintaining a groove that keeps the audience engaged and on their feet. The result is an ever-listenable, ever-evolving soundscape that feels both spontaneous and meticulously crafted, a dynamic expression of the group's collective talent and their commitment to the core tenets of the Seattle "Groove" scene. Marmalade's music is a celebration of rhythm and movement, an invitation to experience the joy of dance through the medium of expertly improvised groove music. Each performance is an assurance that the art of improvisation can indeed produce music that is as danceable as it is listenable, making every Marmalade show a unique and unmissable experience for those who love to move.
