The San Francisco Bay Area is home to a wide variety of musical styles: salsa, hip-hop, funk, jazz, rock, soul… and Bayonics does them all. A 10-piece ensemble built on the foundation of a traditional salsa orchestra and funk big band, Bayonics incorporates a heavy, streetwise sound to create a unique fusion of influences. Their edgy rhythm derives from a blend of intricate guitar riffs, explosive horn lines, slumping bass, and smokey rap vocals. Their influences include: Fania All-stars, Tower of Power, Sly & the Family Stone, the Roots, Too Short, Los Van Van, Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye, and many more.
Bayonics has made a name for themselves up and down the California Coastline, at such venus as LA’s Temple Bar, and the Catalyst in Santa Cruz. Outside of California, Bayonics has participated in the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, the Carnival on the Mile Festival in Miami, FL with Arturo Sandoval and the Rebirth Brass Band. Bayonics has even established a residency at Jazzid in Miami’s South Beach. On their home turf in the Bay, they’ve been seen frequently at the Elbo Room, the Independent, Red Devil Lounge, the Shattuck Downlow in Berkeley and the Voo Doo Lounge in San Jose.
They have also performed live on Wild 94.9 FM on the Doghouse morning show, 94.1 KPFA with George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic, and on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Comcast Spring Break event, sponsored by MTV3. Taking pride in their community, Bayonics supports and participates in Loco Bloco, a youth drum and dance ensemble, Youth Outlook Television on the WB Network, the Chicano Moratorium Festival, and the San Francisco Carnival Festival. They were recently featured on the cover of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Datebook section, and won the SF Weekly Music Award for Best International Band.
