The Tone Collaborative
Original Funk, Groove, Reggae, Latin, Soul, Experimental and Jazz all mixed up the way you like it!




Started in Spokane WA in 2013. The Tone Collaborative was made one Thursday at a time at the Jam night at the now defunct Phat House Musician's Club. An experiment in organic music and band creation. It went like this: Whoever showed up, was in the band, whatever songs we made up, were the songs on our set list! Now 2 years later that same group that fatefully came together are still playing and writing songs! Tight grooves, soaring vocals and a blend of organic jam funk that is irresistible!

Flannel Math Animal
Flannel Math Animal is an instrumental rock duo based out of Spokane, Washington. The initial idea behind the band started from a series of jam sessions in the fall of 2013 called the Space Funk Sessions. It was from these sessions that guitarist/synth player Nick Palmieri and drummer Brad Spracklin gave birth to their first few songs as Flannel Math Animal. They have since written more music and continue to push themselves musically. Their music revolves around the ability to flow through complex time signatures so smoothly you won't even notice! Flannel Math Animal now has a good EP recorded and is putting the finishing touches on it, they have also been performing regualarly around the local Spokane music scene. Stay tunned for a release of thier EP and try to catch them at a local venue near you!

Marco Polo Collective
Marco Polo Collective is an acoustic rock band from the Pacific Northwest. Caleb Andersen, the lead singer and songwriter, grew up in eastern Washington and has always had a powerful aspiration for music. Caleb quickly gained attention for his mature songwriting and guitar playing at such a young age of 21. In 2013 he and, long-time percussionist, Phill Brannan recorded their first project, The Marco Polo EP. With the debut of the EP came the beginning of Marco Polo Collective, inviting many other musicians and songwriters to collaborate with them, to bring a completely new experience to the acoustic music scene. With influences like Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and the Dave Matthews Band, they hope to create music that inspires people to think about life and reflect on how they live it.

“A lot of bands write music because they party. We write music because we live.”
