About Yak Attack: Live electronic power trio Yak Attack (Portland, OR) is on the rise thanks to exuberant performances across the country that convert the most casual fans into followers. Their live show is musically sophisticated but widely accessible, and they're supported by a growing army of engaged fans willing to make long drives for their next musical fix. Best described as "organic electronica", Yak Attack uses live loops, tight chops, and raw improvisation to build high-energy dance music that’s rooted in breakbeat, electro-funk and trip-hop from scratch, where every uplifting note is played and recorded live.
Yak Attack's 2018 album 'Safety Third' was released via Philadelphia's storied label, Ropeadope Records, founded by John Medeski. The band has performed at festivals like Treefort Fest, Joshua Tree Music Festival, WaveSpell, Summer Meltdown and Northwest String Summit, while also establishing itself as leaders of the after party following acts like Phish. They have shared the stage with STS9, Snarky Puppy, Fruition, Lotus, Sunsquabi, TAUK, Turkuaz as well as members of String Cheese Incident & Thievery Corporation, among many others.

The band delivers an explosive blend of rock, funk, and synth driven dance music. Drawing from many different influences, you can expect high energy jams, catchy dance grooves, and the occasional prog rock riff to keep the audience on their toes.
