REVIEW: Reptet @ Luckey’s (Eugene, OR – 1/14/11)

17th Jan 11 (Mon) Leave a comment Go to comments


A rare nice, non-rainy evening in Eugene on Friday… how do you start a show? You get your gear and head outsideReptet did just that… wearing drums and horns, they hit the street right outside Luckey’s to get the crowd pumped as well as bring in some surprised passersby.  After their Reptet-ization of a Chamillionaire song, they shuffled and bounced back inside, bringing more people in after them than were originally were in the bar.  First song, first stroke of genius.

This was the first show of their West Coast CD Release tour (see dates below).  Their 4th studio album AT THE CABIN just came out, and after a couple spins… I’m totally digging it.  Great fun-romp of a jazz sextet.  A little bit of goofing around, a little bit of standard following mixed with standard setting, and a little bit of punk & experimental sensibilities with a solid rhythm section.  To me, this is what a jazz combo from (my) young generation should be like.  Plus I’m a sucker for brass & reed-based jazz…

Reptet is made up of Samantha Boshnack (trumpet & vox), Chris Credit (sax/clarinet/flute), Izaak Mills (sax/clarinet/flute & vox/fake phone calls), Nelson Bell (trombone/sousaphone), Tim Carey (acoustic & electric bass), and John Ewing (drums & vox).  They played about 70 minutes, and hit a few unidentified songs, but here are the ones I know they played…


  • Chamillionaire on the street
  • Zeppo
  • Snow Leopard x 3
  • unknown
  • Skcorcissalc
  • Something Like What.
  • brains
  • Fish Market

They ended about 15 minutes ’til midnight, and while I wanted to stick around for Eugene-based jazz combo Eleven Eyes, I had to call it a night.  Thanks for making Eugene a part of your CD release tour, Reptet!  See you again soon!
