Liberation is both the modus operandi and main ingredient of the fearless five-man band Phony Ppl. Comprised of the cream of Brooklyn’s young musician crop, each classically trained. The result is a collective that’s as limitless as its music; one that has received praise from the likes of Tyler, The Creator and Childish Gambino, performed with Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and The Roots, and killed festivals, late night television, and their own residency at New York City’s legendary Blue Note. Their first official full-length offering, Yesterday’s Tomorrow (2015), received critical acclaim from the New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, and more. Things caught on fire in 2020 during their set on Megan Thee Stallion’s NPR Tiny Desk, where the artists previewed their collaboration Fkn Around, which ultimately went viral. The band’s new album, Euphonyus, is set to release this fall.


We're thrilled to offer free jazz programming for the entire festival, so that everyone has the opportunity to experience this music. Please support us if you can.
