Having experienced and academic backgrounds in music, the four members of Background Orcs combine musical styles and feels from around the globe to deliver a high-energy atmosphere for listeners as well as keep them on their toes with a unique sound that defies normal categorization. While some have attempted to package the Orcs’ sound with brands such as “Deep Pocket Immersive Groove” or “Heady Psychedelic Jazz Fusion”, one must experience the group first hand to grasp their diverse musical directions. Regardless of genre, constant craftsmanship by all four members has been a hallmark of Background Orcs from the very beginning. This along with heavy performing have led Background Orcs to establishing a formidable presence in the Northeast music scene, already sharing stages from Maine to New Jersey with artists such as Bernie Worrell, Zappa Plays Zappa, Consider The Source, Dopapod, Dub Apocalypse, and Viral Sound. In 2013, the band will be dropping their first full-length recording and is currently lining up a busy tour schedule. Be on the lookout for Massachusetts’ new all original groove ensemble as they continue to perform to ever-growing audiences.

Who is ready for some Chee. on some Hennessey Sound Design speakers? He’s making his way all the way from South Africa for YOU!

“Taking influences liberally from his surroundings and combining them into a complex pastiche of audio that has its origins in visual inspirations of visceral art and various theories incubated in the dynamic folds of the internet, as well as in the music that he wraps himself in from the likes of Noisia, Moody Good, Amon Tobin, Skrillex, Ivy Lab and Tsuruda – creators who are pushing at the very fringes of sonic possibility. Chee’s sound has the potential to develop into a genre in its own right – evading being pigeon-holed and classified due to his unrelenting urge to experiment and explore fresh and ill sounds.”
