Tori Roze and The Hot Mess

"This is Soul for today: tight, sophisticated, and up-to-date...a winner" (San Diego Troubadour).

Tori Roze and The Hot Mess are a soulful force to be reckoned with. Gathering their musical thunder from an extremely eclectic time and space, spanning centuries. This band busts straight through the glass ceiling of genre-bending: original funky jazzy neo-soul music exploding with grit, integrity, and vulnerability. Roze is a key artist in conveying the emotional intent behind a song.

"Hearing Tori Roze's sultry voice for the first time is like learning that Santa Claus isn't real: it absolutely breaks your heart. Roze seduces you with her Erykah Badu-esque flair, and just when you think she can't be any smoother, she claws her way into your ears with her rocking roars" (San Diego City Beat). The Hot Mess, comprised of five exceptional "pocket" players nailing unexpected original arrangements that will “blow your top,” leaves you reeling with toe-tapping excitement. Funky-Jazzy-Neo-Soul = strange beautiful music. The name says it all: The Hot Mess – a motley crew of incredible musical technicians. Do not expect for their music to be predictable or run-of-the-mill – this band is audibly unique. Musically likened to Chicago with a slap of Amy Winehouse + Janis Joplin-style vocals; these guys have got the spicy recipe for eargasmic pleasure.


Fourth Position formed in 2019 and have quickly developed into a sophisticated unit of passionate musicians wowing audiences. With summer festival appearances at High Sierra‘s Camp Happiness and For The Funk Of It as well as venues around the Bay, Fourth Position have introduced audiences to their unique blend of original California Psychedelic Funk, Soul, Jazz, and Rock. Look for their debut album this year!

Joseph Carter (The Humidors, Sans Pablo, 10 Minutes To Funk, Ultra Cinco)studied Vocal Jazz in high school and college and has been performing in Maine, Nashville and The Bay for twenty years. He brings jazz influenced soulful vocals and to the bands growing repertoire. His showmanship and stage presence are electric and infectious! And his cowbell skills are on point. 

Jordan Sookikian is lead guitarist and riff-master. His funk-influence is prominent in his playing, where different elements of Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Hazel, and John Frusciante come out through each phrase he plays. 

Jon Levine keeps the groove on the bass. Although he still tells people that he “plays guitar”, Jon not-so-secretly loves holding down the low end. He previously played in Bay Area band Whippoorwil, and is now in Corduroy, a Pearl Jam tribute band.

Miles Lindheimer pecks and wails on the saxophone. Hailing from a background of jazz and funk, he uses his horn to add some grit while still keeping things fresh.

Veteran keyboardist Driftwood could pick out tunes on the piano with 1 finger starting at age 4.  Now he uses all 10 fingers and occasionally both feet. He boasts of a long and varied musical career, having been kicked out of bands of so many genres --  blues, funk, soul, folk, classic and alt rock --- it's hard to keep track.  His latest passion is playing acid jazz on the mighty Hammond B3.

Chris Gamper, drummer extraordinaire!
In complete protest of all things boring and boredom related, Chris Gamper can be seen playing big drums, small drums, loud drums and quiet drums at a number of fine San Francisco Bay Area establishments. “I’m especially proud to be a part of bands and play with musicians that are writing, recording and performing original material and unique arrangements of other composers. I can create my own musical vocabulary by developing a sound and style just for that band. My passion for drums and new gear then allows me to really bring to life the sound I am envisioning."
