Announcing The Everyone Orchestra 2016 Winter Shows

Everyone Orchestra - Winter 2016

From Everyone Orchestra

“Everyone Orchestra is happy to announce the addition of a handful of winter shows after they return from Jam Cruise. They will play in Beaver Creek, Colorado at Vilar performing Arts Center on Thursday, January 14th and then head over to Denver for a two night stand at Cervantes for the venue’s 14th Year Anniversary Party on January 15-16th. Early March has EO returning to the midwest with shows at The Ark in Ann Arbor (3/2), Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo (3/3), 1st Ward at the Chop Shop in Chicago (3/4), the Majestic Theatre in Madison (3/5), and The Cabooze in Minneapolis (3/6). Stay tuned for artist announcements for the Winter shows!

EO is also is excited about their two night run at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco, Co on Fri-Sat, December 18-19, 2015 to help the venue celebrate its 3rd Anniversary and have announced the additions of Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds – guitar) for both nights, Chuck Morris (Lotus – percussion) and Amanda Renee for Friday, as well as Scott Stoughton (Bonfire Dub) on Saturday.

Conducted by Matt Butler, and already set to perform at the Barkley are Al Schnier (moe. – guitar, vacals), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident – percussion/drums), Bridget Law (Elephant Revival – fiddle), Jay Starling (Love Canon – dobro), Sage Cook (we dream dawn – guitar, vocals), Adrian Engfer (The Grant Farm – bass). The Grant Farm opens the show!

Having marched clearly into uncharted territory, Everyone Orchestra is an avant-garde conceptual and collaborative performance which deeply encourages and requires audience interaction. Both the band and the audience start the show with a clean slate to help co-create a dynamic musical experience, with Butler receiving ideas from the audience to help set the course of action.

Butler’s unique style of conducting is groundbreaking in that he, as EO’s founder, has essentially created an entirely new way to perform and experience music. Butler says, “Playing with different musicians, improvising every night, and getting the crowd involved in ways that they can’t be at a regular show has provided an unparalleled live music experience.””

Ultraviolet Hippopotamus Hippoween 2014

Hippoween 2014From UVHippoMusic.com
“After our shows on Halloween night and the first weekend of December, we will be taking our first break ever from touring and performing on the stage. In case you missed our announcement a few months back, we will taking an indefinite break starting this winter. We have no time table in mind or determined length of a break, but will definitely be making a return when we are ready. With that in mind, these three shows will be the last times to catch us for a while.

Halloween night we will be making our first appearance at The State Theatre in Kalamazoo, MI. Joining us on the stage for the night will be a horn section led by Funktion’s Terrance Massey. Opening up the show will be the fellow Grand Rapids folk band, The Crane Wives. Also entertaining the crowd for a while will be the most rocking blues band we’ve ever played with, Andy Frasco and the U.N. from Los Angelas, CA. Many of our fans have been discussing and planning on dressing up as a Hippo song or a theme from one of our songs. We fully endorse and encourage our all people attending this show to follow suit since this is totally awesome. If you don’t want to dress up as a UV Hippo theme, just dress up anyways, it is Halloween night!

The first weekend of December we are playing Friday night in Grand Rapids at The Intersection and Indianapolis at The Vogue the following day. Both nights will be An Evening with meaning everyone that attends will be getting three full sets of Hippo each night! Both of these cities and both of these shows mean a lot to us. It is the culmination of 10 years of non stop work and 6 years of non stop touring. We would love to see all of your beautiful faces at both of them dancing in front of us. Make a weekend of it!”

Upcoming Shows
10/31/14: Hippoween 2014 State Theatre in Kalamazoo,MI – TICKETS
12/5/14: The Intersection in Grand Rapids, MI – TICKETS
