From Keller Williams
“This winter, Keller wants everyone to “Shut the Folk Up and Listen”! Starting in January, Keller will continue his 2016 collaboration with Leo Kottke by bringing his newest project, “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” to 24 cities around the country! For this tour Keller goes back to his roots, with just an acoustic guitar, he’ll share the stage with one of his musical idols, flat picking six and twelve string guitarist Leo Kottke. This unique evening of music features solo sets by both artists and spontaneous collaborations between the two.
In addition to the 24 dates with Leo Kottke, the Pacific Northwest will get an album-release run (stay tuned for more info on this front!) and the midwest will get some Keller Solo love. ”
In honor of the spirit and artistic contributions of the late Bradley Nowell, who passed away 20 years ago; LA’s legendary ska-punk-rockers, Fishbone debuts their virtual reality music video of Sublime’s “Date Rape” in “360° Experience”, live from The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA. Sublime originally released the song “Date Rape” back in 1992, off their LP 40 oz to Freedom.
“With all due respect to Bradley Nowell and the rest of the Sublime family, this is one of the many Sublime songs that cuts my heart, but its the main one I wish Fishbone would have written,” says co-founder and bass player Norwood Fisher.
One of the first Hollywood production houses to specialize in VR content, Experience 360° uses cutting-edge technology & workflows to produce original content for all consumer devices from traditional, two-dimensional access to content on phones, tablets, computers, and televisions in up to 8K resolution. The technical challenges in past attempts to create immersive virtual environments have been overcome by Experience 360°. The current challenge faced by the industry is generating compelling immersive content for this new medium.
Fishbone hits the road this week, starting May 26 in Cleveland, OH, then heads to Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL May 28, and many stops along the way in Minneapolis, Detroit, St. Louis and more.

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.””
