Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle / Malachy Papers

Record Bar

Roving Kansas City vibraphonist Mike Dillon is always up to something, whether it's jamming with KC funk outfit Hairy Apes BMX or touring the country with Les Claypool and Ani Difranco. The confounding genre-bender is currently prepping to release "Battery Milk", the debut of Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle. The trio cooks up funk and jazz grooves to get on the good foot, highlighted by veteran musicianship and mellifluous vibraphone compositions that build a bridge between jazz great Lionel Hampton and left-field rockers The Minutemen. The ensemble made its debut last March in Kansas City and hit the road with jam-funk icons Galactic and Zilla before embarking on this current tour, which also visits the Bottleneck in Lawrence on January 24.
