About Astral/Subastral

Astral/Subastral is a band comprised of a diverse group with massive wide range of influences, much like the city they call home, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This diversity is evident in the makeup of the group itself as well as in their wide ranging musical influences. The backgrounds of each individual musician and the band’s collective influences are many and varied. The result is something very unique. Astral/Subastral’s sound is difficult to categorize, blending a mix of Afro-beat, Afro-Cuban, Jazz, Samba and other influences from around the globe. Most recently the group has added a trumpet player, and at times a more extensive horn section, to the group and expanded upon their percussion and rhythm section. Since their founding, Astral/Subastral has become known for their high energy live shows, at times bringing percussion instruments to hand out to the crowd, creating an interactive experience for the crowd, encouraging the fans to be a part of the show. To date, Astral/Subastral has released 1 EP that has become almost impossible to find and 3 singles that have received airplay on college radio around the state. They have appeared at Milwaukee’s own Summerfest, MKE PrideFest and numerous other high-profile events and venues in the area.
