Dustin Wong

Wong’s style is characterized by influences of surf rock and John Fahey. Wong was born in Hawaii and grew up in Japan, though he is half Chinese. Together with Matt Papich he formed the duo Ecstatic Sunshine and released two albums. Wong left Ecstatic Sunshine in 2007 to fully focus on Ponytail and solo projects. Wong’s first solo record in 2009 on Wildfire Wildfire was entitled Seasons. Wong published a second solo-album Infinite Love in October 2010. A 40-minute piece cut into 15 tracks and then re-done on a 2nd CD. This instrumental release appeared on Thrill Jockey. After releasing the record he went on tour in Europe. Although Dustin Wong had announced that Whartscape 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland would be the last Ponytail show, a new album was announced. The band released their third full-length album, titled Do Whatever You Want All The Time, in April 2011.However Ponytail broke up on September 22. 2011. Wong moved to New York and continued as a solo artist and published his third record in February 2012. Dustin contributed to Flamingods’ debut album Sun, providing guitar backing for the album’s lead single ‘Quesso’. He relocated to Tokyo in 2012, and began collaborating with Takako Minekawa. They have recorded the albums Toropical Circle (2013), Savage Imagination (2014), and Are Euphoria (2017).

Human Error Club

Mekala Session is a drummer from Inglewood whose exuberant, explosive approach to the drumset, cultivated from his lifelong involvement with the Pan Afrikan People’s Arkestra, has made him one of the leading voices of the LA jazz renaissance. 

Jesse Justice is an ex-beatmaker who taught himself how to play keys directly from old jazz records and charts, and lessons from friends. 

Diego Gaeta is a lifelong piano player with a uniquely progressive voice shaped by a deep attention towards strong universal elements of spiritual improvisation, and radical sources of sound. 

Together, they are Human Error Club, a free jazz band from Los Angeles whose collage-like performances combine beat scene antics with a collectivist jazz spirit. Their sound is serious, ridiculous and unmistakably representative of the city that grew it.
