Just a heads up regarding a couple of interesting gigs of mine to take note of this weekend:
I'll be appearing at the Beatniq Jazz & Social Club on Saturday evening with the band featured in this year's DJD production. Known as the reClaim Collective, we'll be performing all the music and original soundtrack from the upcoming dance show "Wilds" of which we are currently rehearsing and which will be running at the Grand Theatre March 11-20. The music is all composed by Rubim DeToledo and Chris Andrew and features an eclectic mix of styles and grooves. There is lots of variety and a lot of very interesting harmonic textures and melodic material to work with. Rubim and Chris have also come up with some quite challenging mixed-meter compositions that will be sure to keep us on our toes!
