Cosmopolitics is a four piece band based out of Lawrence, Kansas founded by Matt Gader in 2004. They have played numerous local and Midwestern gigs including clubs in Kansas, Colorado, Missouri and surrounding states. Cosmopolitics has also played the Wakarusa Music Festival, a 15,000+ festival for three years running, as well as Summer Camp music festival. The band plays mostly original compositions which blend many diverse styles including progressive rock, jazz fusion, hip hop, funk, and electronica. Although they are known for playing a wide range of styles, they never lose focus on a strong groove and interesting melodic progression, which keeps their fans coming back for more. Cosmopolitics original compositions stylistically meld each member’s range of influences, including Umphrey's Mcgee, Rush, Frank Zappa, early Yes, Primus, Phish, and countless others. From time to time the band will incorporate various cover songs into their live shows, almost always drawing a fevered reaction from the crowd. Cosmopolitics is a band poised on the brink of something unique and creative and we hope to see you along for the ride!
