Moppa Elliott - Jazz Band / Rock Band / Dance Band

The bands featured on these albums include jazz band Advancing on a Wild Pitch (Elliott, Sam Kulik, Charles Evans, Danny Fox, Christian Coleman), rock band Unspeakable Garbage (Elliott, Jon Irabagon, Nick Milivoi, Ron Stabinsky, Dan Monaghan), and dance band Acceleration Due to Gravity (Elliott, George Burton, Mike Pride, Nate Wooley, Dave Taylor, Matt Nelson, Bryan Murray, Dr. Kyle Saulnier, Ava Mendoza). Each of these ensembles present a different side of Elliott's musical personality and diverse array of influences which have lurked beneath the surface of his work with MOPDtK, but are given full voice on these recordings. All of the music is united both through Elliott's foundational bass playing and his penchant for manipulating and subverting traditional song forms, melodies, and harmonies.
