Mike Rivard's improvisational groove collective celebrates the release of the new album "Live At Club Helsinki" in the warm embrace of it's home base, the Lizard Lounge!  Special guest The Funky Knuckles opens the show!

Formed in 1998, Club d'Elf's music draws from a startlingly wide spectrum of styles, including jazz, Moroccan Gnawa, hip hop, psychedelia, electronica, avant garde and dub. Derived from ancient sources, trance forms the central core of the Club d'Elf aesthetic, unifying the various genres the band has absorbed. Circling about bassist/composer Mike Rivard and drummer Dean Johnston, each Club d'Elf performance features a different line-up, drawn from a constellation of some of the most creative improvisors from the jazz, DJ, rock & world music scenes of Boston, NYC and beyond, creating a unique experience for audience and musicians alike.

"One of the most inventive and ever-changing bands in all of new jazz. There is simply not another band like Club d'Elf on the planet." - Russ Davis, Jazz America

"Crushed between the borders of Morocco, jam band land and the kingdom of avant-garde jazz lies Club d'Elf...James Brown-meets-Sun-Ra." - Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

THE FUNKY KNUCKLES
The inevitable result of a talent-soaked soul and jazz community, The Funky Knuckles are taking the sound of Dallas to an entirely different level. They have been together for six years and have played on stages across the U.S and around the world. The band is comprised of musicians and producers who have worked with some of the most respected acts in the music industry (Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Talib Kweli, Chris Dave, The Polyphonic Spree, etc.), yet possess a sound distinctly separate from any of their individual projects.

The Funky Knuckles move together musically as a school of fish, never complacent and always stretching the boundaries of improvisation and composition. Whether performing original music or standards, they draw from each member's musical experiences to create their unique genre-bending sound. They are currently touring internationally and working on new music for their 4th album.

Their second album "Meta-Musica" held the #1 position on the iTunes jazz charts for over a week. They played for sold out audiences across Europe in April 2016 on their first tour overseas.
