Who we are: The Tripp Brothers

What our music is: Glitch Hop

What sets our music apart from the rest: The Tripp Brothers (Sean & Jimmy Tripp) have been a staple the Quad Cities electronic music scene since 1997. Deejaying and producing house, techno, and now there new sound glitch hop, the Tripp Brothers have been making people get down and funky for 20 years. The Tripp Brothers sound is pure energy, fusing funk electronic bass music with powerful live Saxophone and Trombone hits and solos. The thing that makes us standout compared to other DJ’s or electronic music producers is the live horns. This element memorizes and amazes the crowd, because it not something would expect from a DeeJay group!”
