Launched before the pandemic by bassist Giulio Xavier Cetto and former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen as an improvisation-laced vehicle for exploring state-of-the-art grooves, Big Trippin has transformed into a collective utilizing some of the region’s most talented artists, including alto saxophonist John Palowitch and pianist Javier Santiago. These vibe masters specialize in getting a party started and keeping the energy bumping for improvisers, MC’s and dancers alike. Encompassing rock, hip hop, funk and jazz, the collective is built on the loose and limber rhythm section tandem of Cetto and Pridgen, players recognized internationally as contemporary music standard bearers who are dedicated to building the Bay Area scene. The quartet will be joined by some very special guests.
