Tyler Blanton’s Hornē Electric Band is an amalgamation of Jazz, Neo- Soul, and Funk influences presented in a completely original and fun way. Rising star vibraphonist Tyler Blanton has long delved into the world of electronic, synthesized, and sampled sounds with the Malletkat- a midi controller which is played in the same fashion as a vibraphone. Adding to the groundwork laid by earlier trio projects, the Hornē Electric Band adds a world class horn section and tight knit arrangements to the mix. This synergy of electronic and acoustic sounds are brought together with deep grooves which draw on vintage flavors, but with a unique and modern sound.
Since the groups inception in 2015, they’ve played over 25 shows in NYC at many of the iconic venues such as 55 Bar, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, and Blue Note, among others.
