A local bay area phenom on the rise, Amalgamation was featured as “Best Band” in SF Weekly’s Best of 2015. Their sound harkens to the best of classic rock anthems, is often danceable, and at times, cinematic. It makes an excellent playground for Robin Lovejoy, rock ‘n roll chanteuse & guitarist, with her encompassing range and vocal prowess. Ivo, lead guitarist, was born out of the greasy axles of Detroit’s rock and Motown sound and enhances the soundscape with his retro-innovation. Bassist, Ozzy, is from Istanbul and adds an exotic rhythmic element to the alternative mix. Jai Dhar has roots in prog rock and his passion for drumming brings a new dimension to the band’s songs.
Channeling the likes of Led Zeppelin, My Morning Jacket, Grace Potter and Kings of Leon, Amalgamation brings us back to the roots of rock while pushing us forward into an important new construction of music.
Amalgamation will be performing at the 2016 Eat Real Festival on Saturday, Sept 24 from 8-9pm on the Main Stage.
