The exclamatory Defiant Ones! bring a variety of the Hudson Valley’s highest-profile national musicians together in one funk/rock ensemble. From the legendary hardcore band Bad Brains come bassist Daryl Jenifer and guitarist Gary “Doc Know” Miller; Jamaican-born singer and producer Ras T. Asheber provides vocals and the mysteriously described “ceremonials.” Drummer Zachary Alford has been Bowie’s drummer of choice for quite a while and has also famously worked with Springsteen and with the B-52s (including a memorable appearance in the “Love Shack” video). Keyboard whiz Jamie Saft is a fixture on the downtown experimental jazz and groove scene and often performs locally with his New Zion Trio.
