The Moves Collective have proven to turn heads all over the West with their Funk-Grass music, having shared the stage with Leftover Salmon, Hot Buttered Rum, Midnight North, The Dustbowl Revival, Joe Marcinek Band and Fruition. Recently winning 'Best Americana' in the 2017 San Diego Music Awards, the group joined the impressive roster of Ever Upward Entertainment out of Colorado and was approached by Zach McNabb with ZALI presents, now working as their Manager. The band's third record will be released in early 2018, followed by a supporting national tour across the US.
“At our core, we have a mission to 'Move in the Moment' through improvisation, sharing our unique songs, experiences and stories with audiences across the globe. Our intent lies in finding connection with others through the beautiful language of music.” - T. Norton
STIG is an all-instrumental progressive jazz funk band consisting of 5 best friends from a myriad of places both geographically and musically. “We share music with each other during the day, and weave those news ideas into our shows at night.” Their improvisational nature paired with tight communication and 2 years of playing and growing together creates an exploratory and engaging live show experience.
STIG tunes are all original and are always written as a group to fuse each member’s genre-crossing influences. Since forming in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music, STIG has been touring the country non-stop, playing high-energy shows, and catering their funk to the vibe and energy of the crowd.
The band recently relocated to Asheville, North Carolina after falling in love with the town while on tour. An Asheville home base means the chance to dive deep into writing music full time, putting it out there and playing it. “We’re stoked to be immersed in the Asheville music community!”
