Formerly of The Motet..........13 years and counting of front range madness, such a blessing to still be rocking it with my musical compatriots. What I can tell you is, The Motet throws really good dance party's. Ill keep you posted on where the latest party is happening.

2. My own group.....I've played a handful of gigs doing songs off my first release "The Offering"
and plan to do much more here in Oregon, over the next year. http://jansingber.bandcamp.com/

3. The Everyone Orchestra - The madness and genius of Matt Butler and his vision of conducted improvisation. I love playing in this group and the 100's of musicians who take part of this musical alchemy. I recorded an album with EO this year with an absolute all-star cast.........and its really good. http://www.everyoneorchestra.com/

4. The Soulmates - These some of my favorite musicians in the world. Reinhardt Melz, Jarrod Lawson and the one and only Jay "Bird" Koder. We play around Portland. https://www.facebook.com/soulmatesmusic

5. Joey Porter's Tributes - In Portland we have been putting our own touches on the masters (Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Herbie Hancock, The Meters and Sly and the Family Stone) These shows have been gaining in popularity and selling out in Portland and Seattle http://www.funktributes.com/

6. Juno What!? These are my dear friends and I recorded on their first two albums. Shameless Dance Music!!!

7. BluSirkut - very well produced electro/pop/hip-hop/funk/rock/bangra/soul I also recorded with this group this past year and love some of the cuts. https://www.facebook.com/blusirkut
