THE EXPERIMENTAL SUPER GROUP PRAXIS WILL REUNITE AUGUST 30 AND 31 AT SONY HALL IN NEW YORK CITY FOR THEIR FIRST SHOWS SINCE 2006.

The current lineup consists of guitar freak Buckethead (Guns n Roses, Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains), bassist and producer extraordinaire Bill Laswell, and drummer Brain (Primus, Guns n Roses, Tom Waits).

The group originally formed in 1992 when Laswell assembled an album project Transmutation (Mutatis Mutandis), which included Bootsy Collins on bass and vocals, P Funk/ Talking Heads keyboard legend Bernie Worrell and Afrika Baby Bam of the Jungle Brothers. The album was release on Laswell’s Axiom Records (through Island).

After sporadic live dates in the 90’s with a quartet version, Bucket, Bill, Brain and DJ Disk (Herbie Hancock, Invisibl Skratch Piklz), the band added Bernie Worrell to live shows in 2004, including a Bonnaroo appearance that year, which resulted in a live album release. Worrell passed away in 2016.
