Eric Amrine Group + Dennis Rea & friends
Guitarist Eric Amrine's goals in music concern bridging the gaps between idioms, then burning those bridges to forge an independent sound and laugh at chaos. For this show he is joined by his son, Julian Amrine (violin and trumpet), Kenny Mandell (reeds, percussion), Don Berman (drums), and Tom Yoder (trombone) for a set of spontaneous compositions for 3, 4, and 5 musicians. Dennis Rea (guitar), Tom Zgonc (drums), and James DeJoie (woodwinds) will follow with more improvised music certain to amaze and astound even the most discriminating listener.
