Bassist Brett McConnell (Fresh Track, Asher Fulero Band, Aniana, formerly of Shafty) has a thing for House Music and that thing finally compelled him to create a livetronic band to explore the genre in a live, real-time setting. Gathering synths, electronic drums and a handful of musicians to play them, he’s put together his eponymous House Party and would love to see you dancing to that familiar electronic heartbeat tonight.
— Golden Beets, AKA Jeffrey Leppert, is a bass player and DJ based in Portland. After studying cello from an early age, Jeffrey picked up the bass at the age of twelve and began playing in bands in his hometown of Kilgore, TX. His passion for bass continued throughout his school years. Jeffrey moved to Portland in 2006, where he met his future bandmates in Off The Grid, a band dedicated to performing improvisational music powered by solar panels. He also began to delve into the world of Ableton, and Golden Beets was born as a new project focusing on music production, remixing and DJing. Incorporating everything from UGK and the Grateful Dead to German house music, Golden Beets has been creating original music and mixes that can engage just about anybody. Jazz is currently playing bass for local favorites, Band of Comerados.
