Yonatan Gat
Yonatan Gat
Yonatan Gat and his band are doing something you will not see anywhere else. The power trio sets up on the floor of every venue from giant clubs to basements—DIY style among sweaty dancing bodies—playing intricate improvisation sets that channel "everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s." - The Bay Bridged

Yonatan Gat - guitar, vocals
Brian Chase - drums
Sergio Sayeg - bass

For the first set, the trio will be joined by:
Katherine Young - bassoon
Joshua Abrams - bass
Matt Lux - bass

“You’ve never seen anything like it before. Cults have been formed over less.”- SPIN

“Echoes of funk from Benin; Cuban son from Senegal; Chicano rock from Los Angeles; Afro-Brazilian soul from Rio de Janeiro; and the pentatonic and Arabic scales that connect much of the world - but there’s always a lilt and an invitation in it. He leaves a space for you to get in. They were playing for themselves and they were playing for you, but they weren’t playing for any static definition of a concert.” - NY Times
