The Urban Renewal Project is a Los Angeles-based band that plays an original blend of jazz, soul and hip-hop, featuring singer Alex Nester, rapper Elmer Demond and a huge horn section. Since 2010, the fifteen-piece ensemble has teamed up with guest artists from across the spectrum to blend the hip-shaking grooves and deep pocket of today’s music with face-melting horn lines and fiery improvisation from big band jazz. Their signature sound has blown away audiences from SFJAZZ to the Midpoint Music Festival and beyond.
