Progressive rock never sounded so amazing! When Stick Men hits our intimate Painted Table Event Center Stage, you’re in for a bluesy, gritty performance that will blow our roof off! Attend this one-time show on Wednesday, February 15th for an otherworldly experience.
Stick Men features Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, the astounding bass and drum artists from King Crimson. Levin rocks it out on the Chapman Stick, making the instrument sound like not one, but two guitars. Add in Markus Reuter on his unique touch style guitar of his own design, and you have another instrument that is played to go far beyond the reaches of only a guitar or bass. Drummer Pat Mastelotto completes the band with more than just a drum kit—He bats it out of the park with added samples, loops, and percussion. Combined with their gutsy vocals, this powerhouse band sounds colossal!
Expect music that is evolved beyond the sounds of early progressive rock—Fast forward to a sound that art rock and prog metal fans adore. Expect a nod to the band’s illustrious past with King Crimson, bringing back songs by Robert Fripp And expect the unexpected—their version of Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite” and their jaw-dropping free music and improvisations are reserved for performance in their live shows.
