Waffle Taco sprang into existence in the summer of 2011. Two very different men came to the promised land of Portland to start a new chapter of their lives. Kyle Linneman was fresh out of college, with nothing but a trumpet, a degree in Music Technology, and dreams of putting the two together for a higher purpose. Ben Beauvais was veteran bassist of LA and SF, looking to continue musical success in greener pastures.

Bonding over love of different blends of funk, jazz, electronica, and hip hop, as well as the bountiful food and beverage the city had to offer, the two men decided to combine efforts.
