The Stakes have brought hip-hop to Arizona’s jazz scene. Their eclectic sound bridges the precedent of jazz fusion set by Robert Glasper, Roy Hargrove, and Esperanza Spalding with the beats of backpack rap of the 90s, which famously sampled classic Blue Note recordings. Soulful singer Marah Armenta and MCs Lord Kash and Zeedubb will take the stage at the Nash backed by a full rhythm section and horns, providing an infectious groove sure to keep your head nodding and feet moving as it resonates through your body and soul. The Stakes have shared the stage with The Internet and Biz Markie and performed at the Viva Phoenix and Apache Lake music festivals.
