Nearly every Wednesday night for the past year and a half, Fluorescent Brown has filled Colonel Black’s with their signature flavor of improvised downtempo electronica. Now, the group is taking a new stage at the Zebra Cocktail Lounge at 9 p.m. on Dec. 31.

Fluorescent Brown is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill bar band. Most live shows consist of sets that the musicians have painstakingly rehearsed, but the men of Florescent Brown take stage knowing only that they can trust one another to make some unforgettable music. The melding of talent, combined with years of friendship allows FloBro to play a different set with a broad range of variety in genre and sound.

“The idea is to lay down a live band backdrop of grooves that aren’t too intrusive,” said pianist Kirchner. “You can still carry a conversation while we perform, which makes for a heightened level of sensitivity between the musicians. It’s dynamically different than any gig I’ve played, and poignant when everything is improv.”
