Logjam Presents is excited to announce Los Angeles-based soul funk band Orgone will return to The Top Hat on February 8th, 2018. Last time Orgone came to The Top Hat was in 2015 with The Nth Power. Having released brand new material in 2017, they’ll be heading back to Missoula stocked with some fresh tunes to play.

Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.
Tickets go on sale Fri, Nov. 17th at 10:00am and will be available at The Top Hat, online or by phone at (877) 987-6487. All tickets are general admission standing room only with limited bench seating available on a first come first served basis. Additional ticketing and venue information can be found here.

Orgōne (Or-gōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy, the creative force in nature. 3. A soul music juggernaut with 8 heads and one heart.
“We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big ‘ol push… a love shove, if you will. And we’re well versed in those.”
Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octets soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone’s latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed “stank face inducing glory” by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the 45 release of “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” featuring Cyril Neville, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one by one into the world throughout 2017.
