Electric Kif

Sat 6/15 • 10:00pm • $5 cover

Electric Kif are a Miami-based power quartet that explore the boundaries between rock, jazz fusion and electronic drum & bass.

Made up of bassist Rodrigo Zambrano, keyboardist Jason Matthews, drummer Armando Lopez and guitarist Eric Escanes, Electric Kif formed as an outlet for the musicians to stretch out and be themselves between recording sessions and touring with other artists.  They started played monthly at a tiny place called Lagniappe, which became their home-base in Miami.  These nights were the time when the band would dive in to their own musicality, and chemistry was undeniable.  The quartet clicked and there was no stopping them.  On any given month you could witness fantastic musicianship, mind blowing grooves, and the occasional guest appearance from a national touring artist who knew if they showed up they would be challenged and delighted to play with these cats. Memorable nights included guest spots from Cory Henry, Michael League, Mark Lettieri, Bobby Sparks and more.
