Welcome to the Lab

Who are we?

LabRats is a dynamic quartet of multi-instrumentalists specializing in many forms of popular American music. A year after the band’s formation, the band has proven itself to be an integral part of their hometown music scene. LabRats, performing all over Sacramento and the Bay Area, has their growing fanbase clamoring for more of their smooth yet psychedelic sounds. In addition to their many gigs and recording sessions, you can find LabRats at the Torch Club every Sunday night where they curate the “Sunday Sessions,” a free, inclusive and safe environment for musicians and other creatives to meet and perform with one another fulfilling the trio’s personal mission of giving back to the community that has shaped them.

"LabRats - an extremely versatile jazz/hip hop fusion band that is both a stand-alone act and a favored companion to vocalists and instrumentalists of all genres."

- Jennifer Reason, CapRadio, NPR
