Sojoy, the modern creative large ensemble led by composer, drummer, and pianist Jonny Peiffer, is expanding its universe and taking on new members as a planet takes on new moons. What began as an instrumental septet has grown to include singer-songwriter Stu Dias. The group will perform music inspired by the constellations Dias and Peiffer have co-written for a forth-coming album, as well as a smattering of inventive arrangements of popular tunes.
The rich sounds of Sojoy originated in the head of composer, drummer, and pianist Jonny Peiffer, arranged for a horn section five-deep – some of the best players north of NYC. Vocalist Stu Dias (Soggy Po Boys, Wizzardess, Moon, Cirque Desolate, etc., etc.) began joining Sojoy on a regular basis when Peiffer and Dias started writing music together in the Fall of 2018. The music ends up being a great combination of Dias’ soulful, funky, tender raucousness and Peiffer’s rich, groovy melodiousness.
This horn section cannot be beat. With Matt Langley (WeirdTurnPro, OurBigBand, etc.), Eric Klaxton (Soggy Po Boys, OurBigBand, etc.), and Nick Mainella (Soggy Po Boys, OurBigBand, etc.) on reeds, Zach Lange (Soggy Po Boys) on trumpet, and Chris Gagne (WeirdTurnPro) on trombone, these gentlemen combine to create the best sound around. The group is rounded out with Scott Kiefner (Soggy Po Boys, etc.) on bass, Eric von Oeyen (OurBigBand) on drums, and the maestro Jonny Peiffer (Shango, etc.) on keys for the first time since the group’s inception in 2014.
