Ideateam is a music collective from Sacramento CA, driven to fuse influences together in a fresh way. Loaded with two guitars, bass, drums, percussion, brass section, and soulful vocals, the group explores winding corridors of groove while flipping through styles like a deck of cards, flowing in and around various genres and noticeably leaning on the funk. They bring sounds old and new, blended with a drop or two of extraterrestrial soundscapes - presented by a group of people who simply love to play music.

"What sets Ideateam apart from other bands is that they’re a force to be reckoned with, whether as an instrumental band or with a singer. It’s not hard to imagine that if Tower of Power, Larry Graham, Eddie Kendricks and Lettuce had birthed a baby, Ideateam would be that spawn."
- Paul Piazza, Submerge Magazine
"This large ensemble from Sacramento became a local’s favorite the first time they hit our stage. What’s not to like about hypnotic rhythms, funky horns, captivating melodies, rockin’ jams and a cast of alluring vocalists? A light bulb will go on as soon as you see what the fuss is all about."

-  Tyler Blue, Crazy Horse Saloon

"[...] expecting the funk in its purest primordial form: A confluence of tight, technical tunes dripping with that amalgam of mud and forest floor, where spores rise of their own accord and you have no choice but to sit and sully your blue-and-white dress to consider the mushroom, to heed the nearby placard reading: “Eat me.”

-  Dave Kempa, Sacramento News & Review
