Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven
Thursday, September 14, 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 12:00 am| $15 - $20
Hatched from the visionary (and delightfully demented) mind of bass pioneer Reed Mathis (Billy [Kreutzmann] & The Kids, Tea Leaf Green, Steve Kimock and Friends, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey), this project embodies the genesis of a new musical genre – CDM (classical dance music). This entirely fresh improvisational journey is built upon the foundation of Beethoven’s symphonies which are turned inside out and upside down with breathtaking spontaneity. The band incorporates funky, deliciously melodic, dance-inducing flourishes while channeling the essence of Ludwig’s original intentions from centuries ago. The result is sure to boggle the mind and enrapture the senses. Fellow intrepid travelers include drummer Jay Lane (Primus, Further, Ratdog, Doobie Decibel System), keyboardist Todd Stoops (Kung Fu, Raq) and young guitar phenom Clay Welch. This is a level of music which transcends simple enjoyment. It might just rearrange your DNA to make you a better person. Behold the dawn of a new sonic era!
