Pomplamoose

Pomplamoose

The Sonoma-based duo Pomplamoose crafts playful confections with homemade care, writing irresistible originals and re-imagining beloved pop tunes. Featuring multi-instrumentalists Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, Pomplamoose has become an online sensation by attracting millions of viewers to bare-bones videos that capture the actual process of their music making, without lip-synced vocals or acted-out instrumentals. The duo reveals every sonic element in these videos, so that no sound’s origin goes hidden. On the heels of their debut album, VideoSongs, a stunning collection of original compositions, they released Tribute to Famous People, a covers project that included a monstrously popular version of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring on It).” Besides YouTube fame, many have discovered Pomplamoose through the use of their music in car commercials, such as a beguiling version of “Mr. Sandman” for Toyota and a series of clever Christmas carols in Hyundai spots. Joined by several like-minded pop confederates, Pomplamoose takes a break from the studio for this rare SFJAZZ appearance, delivering songs that will bewitch and delight.

Opening the show will be the entrancing Los Angeles based duo, Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi.
