Realistic Orchestra featuring Kim Nalley
Realistic Orchestra is composed of many of the San Francisco Bay Area’s finest musicians. Collectively, their studio and live credits read everywhere from Ratdog and Santana to Zion:I and Lyrics Born. The band has performed live at many of the Bay’s top music venues and festivals such as SF Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival and North Beach Jazz Festival.
The instrumentation of Realistic Orchestra is based on a century old classic ensemble known as the “Big Band” or “Jazz Orchestra” which includes 13 horns and a rhythm section of drums, upright bass and keyboards. adding to this foundation is guitar, electric bass, electronics, guest DJs, guest vocalists and the one and only Dublin (The shotgun Wedding Quintet) who’s collaborations with the band are unlike any other Hip:Hop on the planet. These elements, combined with modern electronic influenced grooves, epic arrangements and cutting:edge jazz improvisation, create the distinct and unmistakable sound of the Realistic Orchestra.
