Reptet is a bass, drums and four horn band based out of Seattle. These six multi-instrumentalists all have an expansive approach to their music, performing original compositions that incorporate jazz, rock, ska, punk, modern classical, avant garde, eastern European folk influences and more. Their internationally acclaimed 2006 release, "Do This!" (Monktail Records) was chosen Top Jazz release of the year by Jazziz magazine's Alex Gelfand and made the top ten list of numerous music writers around the globe. They also won two Earshot Golden Ear Awards (celebrating the best of northwest jazz), including Best 'Outside' Jazz Group and Best Performance of the Year (as part of the Monktail Raymond Scott Project). Their next CD, “Chicken or Beef?” was released in the summer of 2008 and the response was no less impressive. In fact, the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards named it a finalist for Jazz Record of the Year. In October 2009, Reptet released their first vinyl/digital-only release entitled "Agendacide" and are touring the country promoting it in May 2010. This 7" red vinyl release features special guest appearance by internationally acclaimed composer/pianist Wayne Horvitz on Hammand Organ. Reptet has spent the last four years criss-crossing the United States and Canada exhaustively touring in support of these three releases. Their live performances have been described as, “arresting, compelling and just plain cranked-up!” with stage shows evolving into transformative performance art pieces using costumes, improv skits, dance routines and absurdist humor. Reptet has proved themselves a unique and utterly enthralling multi-leveled experience, leaving audiences wanting more.
