Chameleonize are 6-piece acid-jazz / funk-fusion band based in New York City. The musicians have been playing together since 2015, but collected as "Chameleonize" in August of 2018.
Band members include Gabi Riel on vocals and alto saxophone, Mo LaMastro and Brian Gipson on guitar, Ben Rudolph on drums, Mikey Rotunno on bass, and Gabe Weissman on keys.
Some influences include Erykah Badu, Snarky Puppy, and Hiatus Kaiyote. Combining complex musical sequences with attractive pop melodies and hip-hop grooves, they exhibit a unique twist on contemporary music.
Eager to begin the Chameleonize journey under the management of Jesse Hermann, the band will quickly gain traction and exposure due to their deep-rooted musical compatibility and fresh appeal.
