Moe's Alley presents a night of live Electronic music with Tropo and special guest Ryan Herr (Polish Ambassador/Wildlight)
Tyson Leonard - Grant Leonard - Adam Kapuscinski
Inspired by the mosaic of human experience, Tropo combines live instruments with electronic dance music to create an eclectic sound and connected-space. Starting as a solo project by Tyson Leonard to integrate his relentless passion for playing violin with composing dance music, Tropo has grown into a trio that features an array of instruments and genre-splices orchestral with tribal, house with jazz, and ethnic with downtempo into a sound that is both heard and felt.
Tropo developed over the years by performing at music festivals around California as a live act playing original, layered compositions. Often the only live band between DJ sets, Tropo uses music to connect with the human family and create a fun, dynamic experience.
Some of Tropo's many milestones include playing at Sonic Bloom, Burning Man, and Lightning in a Bottle; touring with Eoto; performing internationally; and appearing alongside great artists like Beats Antique, Random Rab, David Starfire, and Keller Williams. According to the band, contributing to their audiences' story -- co-creating a thread the listeners carry throughout their lives -- keeps the project evolving and growing. Now with 3 album releases and over 50 festival appearances, Tropo continues to enchant listeners with their signature, intimate allure.
