Everyone Orchestra Adds Winter 2016 Shows in Colorado and the Midwest!
Eddie Roberts, Chuck Morris added to Everyone Orchestra at Barkley Fri-Sat 12/18-19
PORTLAND, OR -- 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."
