VertiKal, founded by guitarist Anthony Allamandola, is a 7-piece group bridging the gap between hip-hop and jazz, drawing influence from funk, soul, latin, rock, and blues. Their live shows are dynamic, fusing MC stylings, soulful female vocals, horn hits, and a grooving rhythm section. Expect to hear anything from rocksteady reggae rhythms and soothing vocal ballads to funky deep house grooves and hardcore jungle beats--and everything in between. Vertikal is creating a stir in Chicago's live music scene, drawing a diverse following that grows larger by the show, performing for capacity crowds at the Double Door and the Metro. In 2007, they were voted audience favorite at the Emergenza national final, with Lorin Cohen receiving a "best bass player" nod. Stay tuned for the next Vertikal gig and come see for yourself...
