Years of experience combined, personified. Valve State is the brainchild of Richard Marshall, Lee Thomson and Jason Reolon, three of Cape Town’s most respected and dynamic musical minds. The combination of DJ and jazz musician is refined in what is at once an engaging, sophisticated and extremely pleasant to listen to.
Through a combination of carefully curated and crafted DJ sets with keyboards and trumpet, the trio has refined the art of blending live, improvised jazz with modern electronic music. Their abilities have seen them seduce crowds as varied as a handful of people at weddings right up to a five thousand-strong crowd opening for Morcheeba at Kirstenbosch Gardens.
If you care for that musical kind of music you’re in good company, Valve State take their craft seriously with refined integrity.
