Yeah You Right Music, Inc., in partnership with Gilly’s (132 S. Jefferson St., Dayton, OH) is thrilled to bring Khris Royal and Dark Matter to Gilly’s on Thursday, April 19, 2012. It will be the first local appearance for this up and coming jazz prodigy from New Orleans. Show time is 8:00 pm.
Khris Royal & Dark Matter (KRDM) is an alternative funk band steeped in jazz flavors on the forefront of the New Orleans music scene. Led by Khris Royal, a young and fearless saxophone player who has made his name playing as a member of both west coast-based Rebelution and funk legends George Porter Jr & the Runnin Pardners, KRDM are quickly building momentum on a national scale. KRDM can be seen performing at respected festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the Hangout Music Festival in Alabama, and the Bear Creek Music Festival. With their Oct 2011 self-titled release, Khris Royal & Dark Matter has risen as one of the freshest and unique jazz/funk bands out of the city.

“[KRDM is] relentless and explosive: aerobic, heavy-handed drumming, whomping basslines, Royal’s quick fingers on the alto sax and powerhouse guitar that slid from slick funk to grinding rock riffs. Dark Matter plays with conservatory chops, but with the energy cranked up.” NOLA.COM
