ALL STAR OPERA [AWL-STAHR OP-ER-UH]
Seattle-based group bestowed with the talent and vibes to create soul-stirring music and art for the benefit of the people.
A social, communal, and political movement based on spreading love and peace.
All Star Opera is a buzz. A vibe. A movement. They are dank, effervescent, transcendent, nebulous. They are, in a word, different. They are Seattle, but they come by way of the Universe.
Drawing influences from artists as varied as The Grateful Dead to works like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to authors like Neil Gaiman, this hip-hop/soul/funk sextet cannot be defined. Led by two emcees and backed by four of the funkiest friends you could have, they function as an ego-less confluence of ideas and splendor, bent on tequila and tenacity, good green and goodwill. Born of the need to install a creative compassion within their community, All Star Opera strives to combine social consciousness with sumptuous candidity.
Bestowed with the talent and vibes to create soul-stirring music and art for the benefit of the people, All Star Opera is a social, communal, and political movement based on spreading love and peace. ASO functions to create and share music that can impact individuals lives and make them smile, help them in a hard time or just make them dance and remind them they are alive and that life is beautiful. The responsibility of the band is to make the music that is the truest to themselves, and do something with the platform that they stand upon, without spreading a toxic narrative, but keeping it on the level at all times. No bullshi*t, just life shi!t.
Having played events like the Seattle World Tour to raise money for Mary’s Place, to the Oregon Country Fair, to Treefort Music Festival the band has traveled a ton - and can’t wait to get back on the road. The back and forth of giving energy is the driving force behind the band’s every movement. To top it off, All Star Opera was voted Seattle Weekly’s ‘Best Band in Seattle’ 2017. But their eyes are firmly on the future.
So, come vibe with us. Dance. Nod your head. Or fold your arms and stand in the corner. Experience what it feels like to high five an extraterrestrial hand with six fingers.
