Forman News

Big, Loud Machine
Posted 10/26/2017 11:13AM

For the third installment of Forman School's new creative arts performance program, on Friday October 27 at 7:30 pm, students and faculty enjoyed a rousing performance by Troker, a five-piece jazz-fusion band based in Guadalajara, Mexico. The name "Troker" is a nonsense word meant to suggest a truck and the band perceives their music as a "big, loud machine."

On the afternoon of the 27th, the band gave a Master Class to more than 20 students. The band members told their own musical stories and stated that their music was hard to define. Some of the phrases used to capture their music were "not-serious jazz" and "fun, fat music."

Troker is sextet that features trumpet, bass, keyboards, saxophone, drums, and a DJ at the turntables. The performance featured several extended tunes and included "Borax" and the highlight of the night "Tequila Death," which featured samples from Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs "Wooly Bully." Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro....

Forman students were especially thrilled by the work of the man at the tornamesas, DJ Sonicko. 

During the Master Class, saxophone player Klaus said, "Follow your dreams. You know what you can do better than anyone else," wonderful words for any young student to hear.
