Imagine Mike Post feeding funk pills to his session men and you are there or thereabouts. Lovely stuff.IDJ Magazine

With one foot in the past and the other firmly placed on the kick drum, this new project from drummer/producer Teddy Rok looks like it has all the hallmarks of another classic.IDJ Magazine

The Stance Brothers is a new project by Teppo “Teddy Rok” Mäkynen. Teppo has thus far gained fame both as a producer and as an outstanding drummer. He is the drummer and live band leader of the globe-trotting Five Corners Quintet, the visionary behind the late Teddy Rok Seven, and the producer of such Finnish jazz luminaries as Jukka Eskola and Timo Lassy, to name but a few of this all-encompassing talent’s endeavours. The Finnish jazz press has selected him several times as the “drummer of the year” and he has been awarded on many occasions, most recently with the most highly-graded Finnish jazz award, Yrjö (“Georgie”) in early November 2007. His debut album “Universal Four” by the Teddy Rok Seven received enthusiastic reviews and showcased Teppo’s skills as a composer, arranger and producer. “Universal Four” also won the “Jazz Record of the Year” award in Finland.

Enter The Stance Brothers

The Stance Brothers represent raw garage jazz in its purest form. The band was formed by the Stance Brothers Isiah and Dwayne. After enlisting their friend, a virtuoso drummer by the name of Byron Breaks, the line-up was complete. The core of The Stance Brothers’ sound stems from countless hours spent jamming in their dusty garage. The trio’s unfaultering will to excel in playing funk-influenced garage jazz comes second only to their passion for shooting hoops at the nearby basketball court.
