HESS IS MORE AT DC JAZZ FESTIVAL ON THE WHARF

We are pleased to anounce that Hess is More will be performing at DC Jazz Festival this year! Come by for a lovely evening of jazz, good vibes and great food at the beautiful Wharf. Hess is More will be playing on a floating stage!

The Embassy of Denmark will also have a booth nearby with fun facts about Denmark and perhaps a Danish sample or two ;)

Admission is free. See you there!

*****************************************************************************

Hess Is More first flickered to life more than a dozen years ago in Copenhagen, where drummer and singer Mikkel Hess had recently graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Music. After spending his young life steeped in jazz, Mikkel greeted adulthood by falling under the sway of pop. From its first rumblings, Hess Is More reveled in the simple pleasures of pop music—all juicy dance beats and whistled jingles—while never abandoning the perspective of an art-damaged jazz act. In time, Mikkel relocated to New York. Hess Is More had long featured the drummer and a revolving cast, yet in the city a dynamic band slowly gelled.

It is the type of project impossible to conceive outside the boundaries of New York City, with members hailing from far-flung corners, both geographic (Denmark, Ireland, the States) and stylistic (jazz, electronic, Disney pop). In concert, the band encircles Mikkel as he drums and sings. A drummer singing lead is an unexpected sight, but this is no schtick: Hess Is More is, in effect, a drummer-led jazz band that happens to play a bastardized form of rock music.
