Skip's Museum / Press

“Skip's Museum is an apt name for a band whose stylistic shifts give the listener the impression they're listening not so much to an album by a group out to define its sound than a well-curated mix from a musically minded friend. On the group's debut album, 2010's "The Rain Table," there are hints of reggae, arena rock and ragtime sprinkled in among the healthy doses of funk and fusion jazz that form the backbone of most of Skip's Museum's songs. The band, formed in 2007 by guitarist and vocalist Matt Micali, drummer Mike Micali, bassist Pat Knapp and keyboardist Russ Cody, might best be described as a "jam band," but prospective fans would do well not to paint the group with broad strokes. Sure, they favor improvisation in their live performances, and yes, some of the songs on "The Rain Table" stretch beyond the six-minute mark, but the musicians who make up Skip's Museum are much more than self-indulgent noodlers. This is a band that takes its music seriously.”

"It brings the funk. It's got the jazz. It meshes it all together in a high-energy, sensory-pleasing show, adding a little quirky fun on top of the musical sundae... it's got a unified and interesting sound that's only possible from a group whose members truly know what they're doing."
