The Patillas Family
The Patillas Family plays Soul in the Key of Jazz.
In late 2012, composer-arranger and bass player Enric Gomez moved from Barcelona to Berlin for a six-month creative working period.
During this time he met well-established berlin-based guitarrist André Matov. They soon realized their shared passion for Funk and Soul Music and formed a quartett to perform their very own instrumental versions of some of the greatest songs from the Soul History.
Completing the line-up of the band, Enric and André were joined by Fox on tenor saxophone and Jürgen Meyer on drums. The Music performed includes works by greats such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Curtis Mayfield. The songs are taken as a starting point to daring virtuosic improvisations, moving solos and heavy grooves. Most of the tunes are familiar to the ear and all of some shine anew in the Patillas Family’s shows!
