Sal’s Greenhouse is ready to kick the funk out Saturday night to help kick off the Brewery Art Center’s Levitt AMP Concert Series presented by the Change Companies.

This will be the band’s first time visiting the capital.

“We’re really happy to be part of it and looking forward to getting out there,” Sally Green said.

The band brings funk music that incorporates soul, rock, and R&B to create their own unique sound.

This is the Bay-area band’s first show back as a complete band since the pandemic started. Green said they have all stayed busy working on solo projects.
The lineup for the show Saturday includes Green on vocals/baritone sax; Chris Brown on trumpet; Cam Perridge on guitar; Michael Wynar on guitar; Hassan Hurd on drums and Bryan Dean on bass.

She said everyone in her band is very talented. They each stand out in their own way and bring a ton of energy. They take turns with solos and showing off what they’ve got, so it’s fun for the audience to see them, Green said.

“Everybody really shines in the band, and that’s what makes us unique,” she said.

They’ll have new music to play in front of everyone. They released their most recent EP “Bloom” in March 2020 and haven’t had a chance to play these songs in front of a live audience.

Green said the live show is high energy and lots of fun with a lot of dance music.

“I think the audience enjoys us a lot,” she said. “Even if they haven’t seen us, everyone is at home and they keep moving and dancing, and we like to keep it that way the entire set.”

Sal’s Background
Besides vocals, Sal also plays a baritone saxophone at shows.

“It’s a powerful instrument, so it’s a lot of fun to play,” she said.

She started out on instruments, playing classical piano as a child. She said she’s always played horns. And through that, she has always been fond of funk music. She studied jazz in college, but she said her creativity has always leaned toward funk.

Some of her influences include Tower of Power, Nick Acosta and the Ohio players.

She also had a solo album release on June 25.

“I always like to put out great content and I’m known for my musicianship and energy,” she said. “And I always like to keep it funky and have a good time.”
