Orion Live Music Showcases presents:
Zevious are a trio—guitarist Mike Eber, drummer Jeff Eber (cousins, not brothers), and bassist Johnny DeBlase. They started out as jazzbos in 2006, but they got over it; they “went electric,” as the old folks say, with DeBlase putting down his upright bass and Mike Eber picking up the Telecaster that gives his tightly knotted lines their sting. The music they wrote shifted from jazz chords and head-nodding swing to tumbling, noisy rock that recalls instrumental-skronk powerhouses like Don Caballero, the Nels Cline Singers, early John McLaughlin, electric Miles Davis, Tony Williams Lifetime, Dysrhythmia (for whom Jeff also plays), Behold The Arctopus, Hyrrokkin, King Crimson (circa 1974-75), James “Blood” Ulmer/Music Revelation Ensemble, and more.
Sonar – an instrumental dual guitar, bass & drums quartet from Switzerland will be releasing their second album (their first Cuneiform release) in January, 2014. Loosely aligned with the trance/hypnotic scene in Switzerland, best exemplified by Nik Bärtsch’s ensemble, Sonar work in a somewhat similar terrain, but they are all-rock!
Carlos Guillen’s project THE EXPANDING MAN is instrumental soundtrack music which combines free improvisation with composed material.
