With one foot in the funk world and the rest kicking through the retro, fusion, and dance doors, the Jaden Carlson Band are a four-piece “funksion” ensemble from Boulder, Colorado led by female guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist and producer, Jaden Carlson. The group is comprised of some of the best talent to be heard, with varied backgrounds coming together from all over the country.

Jaden Carlson, the front of JCB, plays lead guitar, sings and kicks out  dance grooves and techno-funk on the synthesizer.

Eric Imbrosciano brings a wealth of experience in blues, hip-hop, funk and jazz originating from his early years gigging around the New York scene before making his musical home in Colorado, performing with many of the area’s best musicians.

Pianist and composer Chris Beck, can be found gigging with the best jazz, funk and rock bands in Colorado. He has crafted his own voice with organic sounds, soulful taste, and keeps it funky on the talk box.

Bassist Fred Reisen’s ultimate goal is to make the music feel good. Born into a musical family, his influences were honed while having a full RnB/Soul group rehearsing at his family home in New Jersey for a decade. An active member of the Colorado scene for over 5 years, he also plays bass and produces in the live electronic group Dynohunter.

The band has been appearing at some of the nation’s most notable festivals: Suwannee Hulaween, Summer Camp, The Friendly Gathering, The Vertex Festival, 80/35, Bumbershoot, LEAF Festival, The Werkout Music and Art Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, ARISE Festival, Bohemian Nights, and many others.
