NERVE evolved out of Jojo Mayer’s legendary party event, “Prohibited Beatz”, in NYC. Initially a platform for experimental interaction between DJ culture and live music, this collective eventually developed into a finely tuned group that cross- pollinated the premeditated format of programmed electronic music with real time musical performance.
NERVE ultimately brings the early jazz tradition of improvisation, innovation, authentic expression and stylistic evolution to the digital age.

NERVE re-examines and transcends the relationship between human creativity and digital technology, and has created a new form of musical expression which is completely unique in the world today. At the heart of the group is their explosive and high energy live show, which has earned them an extremely loyal international fan base. NERVE sounds like electronic music, but it’s not. It doesn’t sound like jazz or rock, but it is.

In addition to a concert, this evening will also feature a Masterclass. The masterclass is an opportunity for musicians or fans to sit down with Nerve prior to the concert, and ask questions. Every masterclass will be conducted by the entire band (Jojo, John, Jacob, and Aaron), and the direction and topic of each class will be determined primarily by the questions and concerns of the attendees. One of the best ways to improve as a musician is to learn from other musicians, which is why the masterclass will be open to attendees from any musical background. Masterclass participants will be able to attend the concert with the same ticket.

JOJO MAYER, Drums
Jojo started playing drums at an early age and had his first public
performance at 2, sitting in with his dad’s band. His seminal work with NERVE established him as one of the great performers and innovators on the instrument. Jojo’s concepts and techniques of reverse engineering electronic drumbeats in real time on a acoustic drum set introduced a new paradigm and opened the door for an entire generation of musicians to follow. In 2014, the prestigious Modern Drummer Magazine poll listed him as one of the 50 Greatest Drummers of All Time.

JOHN DAVIS, Bass & Low End Manipulation
Jojo’s longtime partner in crime and counterpart in NERVE, John is the foremost proponent of synthesized electric bass culture today. With his experience as a multi-faceted bass player and vast technical expertise as one of New York’s busiest recording and mixing engineers, John has pushed the envelope in emulating programmed synth bass lines from his bass guitar and pedalboard like no other bass player.

JACOB BERGSON, Keys & Synths Jacob initially started to work with NERVE as a recording
engineer for the “The Distance between Zero and One” sessions in 2010. In 2014 he joined the group as a full time keyboardist, compose, and engineer. His broad stylistic experience which ranges from electronic music to pop and jazz and his skills with synthesis make him the perfect collaborator and a distinctive new voice in NERVE.

AARON NEVEZIE, Sound and Realtime Audio Deconstruction
Stepping up into NERVE’s proprietary Real Time Audio Deconstruction concept, Aaron interacts with and manipulates the band’s sonic output during live performances, turning the sound desk into a musical instrument by supplying, in real time, many of the textures usually created in post production. Co-owner of The Bunker Studio, he brings years of studio-honed engineering skills and techniques to the band, stretching the boundaries of live sound and concert experience.

The masterclass is an opportunity for musicians or fans to sit down with Nerve prior to the concert, and ask questions. Every masterclass will be conducted by the entire band (Jojo, John, Jacob, and Aaron), and the direction and topic of each class will be determined primarily by the questions and concerns of the attendees.
