Thurs Mar 29 is Avant! Guitar! Night. Likely to become a monthly series wherever I am located…which is Brooklyn for now. The first installation is at Legion Bar and is a dandy.
1) James Beaudreau / E. Ryan Goodman acoustic guitar duo.
This past winter, I was watching American Astronaut with music by the Billy Nayer Show, loving the tone dripping tremolo/angular guitar work and thought, “what is this guy up to now?” Turns out this guy is James Beaudreau and he lives in NYC!
2) Brett Zweiman Trio.
Mystical guitar man, $50 Trumpet dude and curator of the local improv freak out called A Night of Clutter, brings it on.
3) Rob Cambre / Marco Bucelli guitar / drum duo.
Rob is our guest of honor. Fab guitar maven hailing from New Orleans where he is a driving force with the fabulous Rough 7 and curator/pomoter of improv and out music with folks like Borbetomagus’ Don Miller. Marco is a Brooklyn based drummer (and fellow Italian) with various projects including his collaboration with Xenia Rubinos and Hypercube.
4) Grollman / Menegon / Landis
My new NYC based, twin guitar/electronics & drum trio with David Grollman (snare drum) and Brendan Landis (guitar). Our specialty is short pieces – generally under 3 minutes. Helter skelter improv in a pop radio format.
