Dibs Quintet is a conglomeration and collaboration of intersecting Chicago musical powers. Drummer, composer and beatsmith, Justin Boyd has performed with some of the best artists in the industry. He is the leader of Stereo Genius and performs solo and DJ’s under @thebeatpusha moniker. Lance “Laelo” Loiselle (sousaphone) and David Levine (Bari/Tenor Sax, Flute) hold down the sousaphone and woodwind chairs (Bari, Tenor, Flute) are founding member of The Lowdown Brass Band. Vincent Roofe is regularly sought after guitarist in Chicago’s Southside soul jazz, funk, reggae, gospel, and hip hop scenes. Bobby “Wonderful” Cooper, another local Southside jazz trumpeter and can be spotted performing and collaborating with with local Chicago artists like LeftJones. Together they form the Dibs Quintet – playing music rooted in the funk of the Godfather JB, Modern and New Orleans Brass music, The Funky Meters, Funkadelic, and Chicago avant garde jazz – Dibs approaches the music with the intensity and respect they learned on their roads through the Chicago scene and their improvisations approach the ferocity of the most seasoned performers. Their music can and does freely go anywhere at any time but always grooves with soulful, foot-stomping funky consciousness.
