Songs of pirates and piracy seem to dominate the overall theme of many current songs by this group. Some with historical backgrounds and some just for the sake of a tasty tune. Outside the overall theme, other songs add to the sounds of blues, pop and rock, smoothed out by dynamic musicians with a serious love for crafting good songs. Occasionally, a subtle twist of an ancient cover keeps the crowd rowdy and engaged. Grown men, women and most children sway to the sounds of this bar happy music, filling the room with visions of islands, boats and rum swiggin’ buccaneers.
Ride the heady space-time continuum blend of futuristic and vintage sounds with Surrealia as they weave their psychedelic sonic space with furiously funky beats and textures that create an intense yet swirling presence. An accomplished piano player who has been playing the instrument since early childhood, Sai's keyboard sound makes you want to move and entertains you with a quirky sexy groove. Drummer Dougie Fish jaunted from his high-end funk jazz trio into the unique nuances of jamtronica in 2011 and the two have begun to create a truly original sound. Surrealia's live shows are quickly gaining a reputation for being wildly entertaining, mind bending, intense and perplexing all within the span of three or four tunes delivering a heated and engaging blend of space-rock psychedelic jazz and classically infused funk. Inspired by the likes of Zappa, Beck, Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Ween, Thelonius Monk, Skinny Puppy and Nine Inch Nails with an overall appreciation for the classic predecessors of electronica, the stars are beginning to line up in Surrealia's favor. Time will truly tell the story of their musical tale come along for the trip….
