Collectivity is a jazz/funk, psychedelic soul band originally formed in Shanghai, China and now based in the SF Bay Area. We’re talking about blistering energy and genre blending from an ensemble of world class musicians with a focus on exploration through collective improvisation. Upbeat grooves, soulful guitar work and tight arrangements are things to expect from a collectivity show. They draw on influences from jazz/funk, gospel and psychedelic soul. We saw guitarist Ben Misterka and bassist Uriah Duffy rock our world as members of Lyrics Born’s band back in May. Duffy has also toured with Whitesnake in recent years. Between these two guitar gods and the rest of their bandmates, the level of musicianship in this band is off the charts. We can’t wait to see for ourselves why Collectivity is renowned across several continents.
