A NOTE FROM MICHAEL
This show is a little different than normal and I couldn't be more excited for it. Here's why.
I've been incredibly fortunate to meet and perform with some amazing musicians in my career. When putting together a performance it's almost impossible to book ALL the musicians I want to play with, especially around the holidays. I've been wanting to do a rocked out, jamming, groovy, funky show for years and have never been able to line up the players exactly right.
Earlier this year I approached my "dream team" of musicians again to see if we might be able to finally pull something off toward the end of the year. One of the biggest considerations in a performance like this is who to get to sing alongside such stellar instrumentalists. Mark Primeaux-Redmond has always been at the top of my list. He moved to Hawaii almost five years ago and got in touch with me earlier this year. His first text literally said "I haven’t been home to BR in 4 years but am finally coming this December. If you’re still doing performances at Manship, and would want to do something together, I’d be super down."
It turns out ALL of our instrumentalists were available, Manship Theatre was available, and Mark was coming in town for a two week period all during the same time. For me this is really threading the needle to get a very different type of show in front of an audience. We're going to play classic rock, new pop, everything in between and throw in a little Christmas to boot. I couldn't be more excited about sharing the stage with nine other musicians at the top of their fields and I hope to see you there!
