Founded by Music Man Miles (aka Miles Tackett), the hip-hop orchestra Breakestra brings together the best musicians of Los Angeles' funk/ soul/ hip-hop underground to create an explosively energetic sound. Tackett, a cellist who's recorded with musicians from B.B. King to The Black Eyed Peas, started the band in the hopes of playing hip-hop in a raw instrumental, group context. The current 14-deep lineup now adeptly swings between breakbeat jams, neo-funk and psychedelic soul. —Ashley Melzer
