The Polish Ambassador ~ Sunday, September 28, 2014

Polish AmbassadorThe Polish Ambassador (TPA) brings funky, bassy beats and infectious melodies;  he will be joined by the smooth, conscious rhymes of the legendary Mr. Lif and the soul-touching vocals of Ayla Nereo to move booties and hearts on the dance floor.

This configuration yields a delicious fusion of electronic dance music, hip-hop, and folk.

Tickets are $20.00 ($75.00 for the benefit dinner and show) and can be purchased here.

The benefit dinner is at 5:30 p.m., doors for the concert open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.

 

 

Polish Ambassador PhotoFor the Polish Ambassador project, born on the richly-colored streets of Chicago and San Francisco, infectious melody is paramount.  Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitche; world-infused groove; based-fueled breaks; sexified downtempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto=blasters across the galaxy.

 

 

Common VisionThis event is a benefit for Common Vision who has inspired and empowered more than 100,000 California public school students to plant more than 5,500 fruit trees.  The all volunteer army of modern-day Johnny Appleseeds has collaborated with community groups throughout the state to transform over 200 public schoolyards and community centers from barren urbanscapes into abundant orchards, leaving a lasting legacy of free, fresh food for generations to come.

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, with special guest Grandfather Gold.  Pulling from over a decade of musical styles and nuances explored by TPA, combined with the lush instrumentation of 3 seasoned instrumentalists, The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal are closing the gaps between live and electronic music.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.  Standing / dancing show with limited seating.  Tickets are $27 in Advance and $32 at the Door.  Tickets may be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees don’t apply for purchases made by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office.

 

 

After a cornucopia of albums and countless gigs around the world, The Polish Ambassador has docked the mothership outside the embassy; a fitting stop for a Diplomatic Scandal to unfold.  An amalgamation of funky beats, retro synths, and live instrumentation make up the bulk of this controversial saga.  David Sugalski aka The Polish Ambassador first happened across special agent Ryan Herr (guitar, percussion) in 2015 while traveling the high terrain of Colorado.  After a few years of scheming, planning and interstellar travels, the 2 comrades chanced upon special agents Tyson Leonard (violin) and Jesse James (sax and flute).  Before long, the 4 intergalactic men of mystery had synthesized their scandalous affairs into musical form.  Pulling from over a decade of musical styles and nuances explored by TPA, combined with the lush instrumentation of 3 seasoned instrumentalists, The Polish Ambassador and The Diplomatic Scandal are closing the gaps between live and electronic music.

 

Grandfather Gold is a musical journey across the mountains and deserts of our hearts and minds.  A relic from the old west, a 1960’s folk poet, and contemporary singer-songwriter extraordinaire all-in-one, Grandfather Gold kicks down genre barriers and emphatically opens up Jumpsuit Records to new artistic visions.

The Polish Ambassador
www.thepolishambassador.com
The Polish Ambassador (real name David Sugalski) is raising the bar for what it means to be a professionally touring musician. Sure, the electronic musician lays claim to producing the sweetest beats this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, but the world’s funkiest diplomat is also using his popularity to steer the millennial generation toward a nourishing and sustainable way of relating with art, community and the planet. From birthing the Permaculture Action Movement (a movement where the energy of show/festival goers is catalyzed into community action), to launching a Village Building Convergence in his hometown to creating a program where nutritious beverage options are available at music venues on a routed TPA tour, the ambassador is using his clout to make real, tangible change, and along the way inspiring hundreds of thousands.

Wildlight

Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.

At first breath, The Polish Ambassador was an experiment, David Sugalski’s sound-art passion project that came to life.

An inventive, imaginary character born of humble, humorous beginnings, he found his first audiences through the support of primitive digital radio stations.

Today, TPA is among the premier EDM/live crossover artists in the country with millions of listeners around the world; he’s consistently in-demand at the live music-focused gatherings and boutique electronic festivals from coast to coast.

Founder of independent label Jumpsuit Records, an environmentalist and early progenitor of the permaculture action movement, the world’s funkiest diplomat is here to party with a purpose.
