About Transcendental Express
Missoula’s Homegrown Psychedelic Funk Fusion Quintet Transcendental Express weaves seamlessly between funk & samba, jazz & disco, and metal & latin music, all with a tip of the hat to their improvisational heroes past and present.
Since sharing the stage with regional touring titans like March Fourth Marching Band, Kitchen Dwellers, Fruition & Spunj, they’ve learned how to adapt to their musical surroundings and unite a dance floor.
This is what happens when five people from completely different musical backgrounds get together and play. The unexpected becomes expected, and sometimes even the players aren’t sure what’ll happen next.
The Missoulian says Transcendental Express lands “where jazz, funk and fusion meet in a way that’s amenable to rock fans.” We couldn’t agree more.
