Imperial Blend is a four piece Electronic/Rock group based in Greensboro, North Carolina. Heavy on ambience and sonic textures, their recorded tracks are very subtle. Soft guitar playing against tantalizing keyboards and tempered percussion riddle their music. Self described as an electronic band, they blend forms of rock, jazz, hip hop, dance, trance, funk, and all sorts of electronic music. Comprised of brothers Chris (guitar) and Dave Teague (drums), Ethan Riffe (bass), and Brennan Fowler (keyboards). Since playing their first show in late March 2011, they have gained a steady following and a lot of love.

The innovators of Gangsta-Jazz.

The innovators of Gangsta-Jazz, This duo is bridging the gap between the hot beats of the dirty south and the smooth sensual movements of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. Rims & Keys features Jay Rims and Jordan Adams, two brothers who decided to join together to combine the many genres that has inspired them over the years from Big Band to Hip hop to rock and roll and everything in between into one electrifying sound adding elements of both live band and production this duo is sure to please even the pickiest of music lovers.

What is Gangsta-Jazz?
Gangsta-Jazz is simply the bridge that connects Smooth sensual Jazz movements to the swing of Hip-hop, the intensity of Drum and Bass and the simplicity of House.
It is a new form of jazz that allows complete and total expression of ones soul. Gangsta-Jazz is a statement, you don't have to be a band/producer and stick to a certain genre/brand. You can dive into uncharted waters and play it all... No limitations.

You might be thinking to yourself, this sounds like just another jamband duo, but there is nothing ordinary about this duo at all. Rims & Keys effortlessly flows with the crowd like they are reading the minds of their audience. Imagine listening to a full band or live Dj playing electronic music and all of sudden you think to yourself, "I wanna hear some Hip hop" well before you can even finish your thought process Rims & Keys has already flipped the script and your listening to the freshest hip hop and You can't help yourself.. You just have to dance.
