Project O.N.S. is a music collective led by Louis Ochoa, one of the preeminent bass players in the Boston area. He has collaborated with a variety of talented musicians in the Boston music scene, including Jamie Lynn Hart and the John Hanifin Band. Since 2012, he has been the bass player for the world-famous rockestral (rock orchestra) group, the Video Game Orchestra.
Project O.N.S. is a three-piece collective that blends the nuances of jazz-fusion with the energy of funk and electronic dance music. Our debut album “Standard Pleasure Model” is available for download on iTunes and CDBaby.
Project O.N.S. started as the brainchild of Louis Ochoa during his final semester at the Berklee College of Music, together with Hiroshi Sembon on drums and Aman Mahajan on Keys. Their debut album – Standard Pleasure Model – is an EP of five original tracks featuring an eclectic fusion of jazz, funk, and drum & bass. Louis Ochoa’s musical repertoire also includes his inspired arrangements, which covers a wide array of genres — from fusion (Weather Report, Return to Forever, The Bad Plus), to classic funk (Graham Central Station, Stanley Clark), to today’s most popular electronic dance music (Savant, Zedd, The Rogue Element, Sound Tribe Sector 9).
Project O.N.S. is currently working on its sophomore EP and it features the incredible talents of Chris Enright on Piano/Keys, Shunsuke Uehara (VGO, Masahiro Aoki) on Drums, and Noriko Terada (VGO, Tap Dogs) on Percussion. Release date will be in Spring 2018.
