The Four Nuts Gang
What if the great Duke Ellington had a chance to play music with the legendary Chuck Berry? The Four Nuts Gang is imagining what that would sound like, experimenting with the rage of Rock&Roll and the elegance of Swing.
Our project started in 2014 by vocalist Marta Cabanas, double-bass player Ignacio Sabadell, and guitarist Xavi Casanueva. Drummer Manel Priego joined us a little after. The wind section is composed by alto saxophonist Abert Abad, bariton saxophonist David Mallo, trumpetist Raül Gallego and our latest inclusion, trombonist Miguel Moisés. And our spiritual guide Chingjua, adding strength and color to the whole ensemble.
We are currently recording our first album. We’ve put ourselves in the hands of experienced producer and engineer Marc Molas (Tostadero Records) who promised to take personal care of whole production to ensure it comes alive.
Twelve songs –combining classics from our favourite genre, personal covers and songs of our own– will come to live physically. We’ve been playing them for more than a year in Barcelona and beyond.
On top of the recording, the mastering and the producing of the album, your contributions go to producing a video, designing the album art, taking photographs...and that’s just the tip of the ice-berg of an extra-long list that can make this happen.
