Come check out Who We Are Not on the Main Stage! (Free Show!)
It is an amazing thing for the right musicians to come together at the right time, with the right skills and ability, without any egos, to almost effortlessly create beautiful works of musical art. Who We Are Not is very fortunate to have that. Every note played by each musician is played for the benefit of the piece, not the specific player. Together they create music with technical complexity and subtle nuance. It is difficult to put the music of Who We Are Not into a defined category or genre. They have their own sound that encompasses rock, blues, jazz, folk, alternative, R&B, country, funk, and singer-songwriter characteristics.
