After 7 long years, the mighty mighty Mingus Amungus are back on the Jup patio! Based on the creative underpinnings of the great band leader and composer Charles Mingus, bassist and band leader Miles Perkins brings Mingus' musical philosophy into the a new millennium with Mingus Amungus. The all-star six-piece band weaves its way through Mingus' intricate charts with hard-hitting be-bop, jazz and funk. The band then sprinkles San Francisco's native Hip-Hop Jazz flavor into the mix with a variety of lyricists, thereby bringing Mingus' work into the contemporary age. Mingus Amungus is a noted festival favorite and a must-see act!
