  • Ian Carey Quintet+1 House Concert, April 14

    Date: 2012.03.27 | Category: Gigs | Response: 3

    Hi folks, I’m happy to announce that after a long hiatus, my quintet will be getting together for a special Saturday afternoon performance in two weeks. We’ll be augmenting our long-standing regular lineup with the talented Kasey Knudsen on alto saxophone. (Evan Francis will be covering flute and tenor saxophone for a variety of three-horn combinations.) I’ve been hard at work on an entirely new set of arrangements for the six-piece format, including new works by me, plus some Stravinsky and Ives thrown in for good measure. Sadly, this looks like it will also be the last chance to hear the group before Evan heads to New York (the talent sap claims another victim!), so don’t miss it!

    Our friend the great drummer Bryan Bowman will be doing his part to fight back against the evils of the live music business by hosting at his Emeryville loft (and allowing us use of his beautiful grand piano) for this special event. Plus, Trader Joe’s-caliber refreshments will be served, so that plus six musicians and two hours of brand-new music is a lot of bang for your ten bucks (and all proceeds go directly to the band’s rent, cellphone bills and/or Hulu subscriptions).

    So please get this on your calendars and come on out to support homegrown musical mayhem!

    WHAT: The Ian Carey Quintet+1
    WHO: Ian Carey, trumpet & flugelhorn; Evan Francis, flute & tenor saxophone; Adam Shulman, piano; Fred Randolph, bass; Jon Arkin, drums; and special guest Kasey Knudsen, alto saxophone.
    WHERE: 1430 62nd Street, Emeryville, CA (Enter the building through the glass door up the ramp located nearest Hollis St. on 62nd., go upstairs to the second floor, walk to the third door on the right and enter 1430.)
    WHEN: Saturday, April 14, 2:30-4:30pm
    HOW MUCH: $10-25 donation requested; but no one turned away for lack of funds. (No really–I know it’s tax time, so don’t let the donation be a deterrent!)
