Everyone Orchestra to Begin a Three-City Tour Across the Northeast
It is time to jam out with the Everyone Orchestra for a three-day, three-city tour across the Northeast. Everyone Orchestra features a rotating cast of musicians conducted by the very entertaining Matt Butler. This musical experiment follows no method. Sky is the limit as artists from different genres come together to push musical boundaries to make for a unique and eclectic performance.
Matt Butler is able to communicate with not only the musicians, but also with the audience through an interactive dialogue. He puts cues on a dry erase board that he holds to signal key changes, tempo changes, and other fun stuff that creates quite the jams. If you want to be part of a performance that will go down in history, put on your dancing shoes and get ready to listen to Al Schnier (moe.) on guitar, Vinnie Amico (moe.) on drums, Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket) on vocals, Alex Toth (Rubblebucket) on trumpet, Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) on bass, Trevor Garrod (Tea Leaf Green) on keys, and Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) on the saxophone. Marco Benevento will join the lineup on keys in Philadelphia only. Another epic addition to the performers is legendary rocker Steve Kimock.
I had the honor of seeing Steve Kimock for the first when the Rhythm Devils played at Gathering of the Vibes in 2011. Steve, along with Bill Kruetzmann, Mickey Hart and frontman Keller Williams performed amazing Grateful Dead renditions that had a certain element of reggae and funk to them (my favorite being “Eyes of the World”) that made it impossible stop dancing. This will be the first time this stellar crew is performing together, so do yourself a favor, buy a ticket and head out for this unique musical experience!
