POSITIVELY ALPHABET STREET: PRINCE AND BOB DYLAN MASH-UPS
PC Muñoz’s Singing Blood (PMSB) is a percussion-and-electronics-based art-funk ensemble featuring players with a deep background in experimental funk, jazz, rock, and contemporary classical. PC’s past collaborations include percussion-and-cello outings with longtime Kronos Quartet cellist Joan Jeanrenaud (including the Grammy-nominated “Strange Toys” and the iTunes-charting “Pop-Pop”), as well as tracks with rock legend Jackson Browne, Prince and the Revolution synth wiz Dr. Fink, Kulintang master Danny Kalanduyan, woodwinds renegade Kyle Bruckmann, and more. For this show, PMSB and the amazing Kat o1o will mash-up Prince and Bob Dylan songs live, merging Prince music with Dylan lyrics and vice-versa.
Kat O1O is one of the Bay Area’s go to keyboardists for live performances as well as studio sessions. She has performed internationally and has been featured as a keyboardist and producer on recordings with artists such as Crown City Rockers, Lyrics Born, Blackalicious, Latyrx, Zion I, People Under the Stairs, Broun Fellinis, Jazz Mafia, J. Boogie, Raashan Ahmad, Headnodic, and Jennifer Johns, just to name a few. She has been proclaimed as the “Most Mind-Blowingest Musician” by the East Bay Express, and is entertaining to watch as she produces lush beats on the fly.

“Somewhere between hip-hop attitude, Minneapolis nasty and latin rock playa chops, PC Muñoz has an instantly compelling sound that defies definition…” – Rickey Vincent, host of KPFA’s “The History of Funk” radio show
“Muñoz’s tasteful electronics, effortlessly balancing hard-hitting syncussion with bouncy basslines and buttery synth washes, are the perfect counterpoint to the thought-provoking words he spits out with an incomparable cool….undeniable talent for crafting songs that stimulate the mind and the body.”- Amorn Bholsangngam, URB Magazine
