Spare Parts

     Fusing a mix of funk, rock, jazz, and more, Spare Parts is a Chicago based group rapidly gaining international acclaim. They are signed to Ropeadope Records based in Philadelphia (Snarky Puppy, Philadelphia Experiment, Charlie Hunter.) An eclectic list of influences ranging from Weather Report to The Beatles fuel the creative engines of Spare Parts, both live and in the studio. Their newest release on Ropeadop “Warehaus West Sessions: Vol. 1” captures their sound in the comforts of the band’s own studio. They invited world renowned musicians Fareed Haque (guitar), Bill Dickens (7 String Bass), and Rajiv Halim (Sax) to join them on several of the tracks bringing in a collaborative spirit to the recording process. They breathe new life into Led Zeppelin’s “Four Sticks” and their new live video of that tune has gone viral seeing over twenty thousand plays in its first week online. The band has played at festivals from Wakarusa and Summer Camp, to the international Festival de Jazz in Lima, Peru to name a few. Spare Parts is sought after in diverse markets, pleasing the discerning ears of music aficionados and new listeners alike.

     The band’s broad musical scope has landed them opening spots for acts such as George Clinton, Victor Wooten, Snoop Dogg, Vulfpeck, Forq, Wayne Krantz, Garage a Trois, Liquid Soul, Fareed Haque, Marco Benevento and more. Spare Parts has backed up and performed with artists including bassist Victor Wooten, SNL/Tower of Power saxophonist Lenny Picket, Jerry Garcia Band organist Melvin Seals, Umphrey’s McGee Members, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band drummer Terrence Higgins

Spare Parts remains focused on expanding musical boundaries while attracting new listeners from all walks of life, leaving them thirsty for more. See you at the next show!
