Misnomer (formerly Mister Tie Dye) is a nine-piece ensemble based out of Athens, Georgia. It started as a collective of students from the University of Georgia wanting to use their influences in classical, hip-hop, funk, and jazz music to create something original. The group features alto and tenor saxophone, two trumpets, tenor and bass trombone, keyboard and synthesizer, bass, and drums. They perform a repertoire of music that spans over several genres, influenced by artists and composers like OutKast, NO BS! Brass Band, musicians from GroundUp Music and more.
Misnomer has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with several national-touring acts such as Turkuaz, CBDB, The Werks and more. In February 2017, they released their EP, Mister Tie Dye, and in April 2018 released their first full-length album, Neighborhood. This album features compositions by six members of the group and features Drí of Partials (Athens, GA) on the track “New World.” The group hopes to continue adding a variety of styles and sounds to their repertoire while sharing their music with audiences everywhere.
