Join us for an evening of string exploration with some great bass players from the East and West Coast. 

 

Bandersnatch
 

Bandersnatch will wander around, through, and far from bluegrass tunes and original tunes. Tonight's trio was inspired by Max's visit from NYC - with many stylistic influences, these three string players will explore quirky traditional tunes as well as their own!

Lisa Mezzacappa's Interlopers
 

Bay Area bassist Lisa Mezzacappa's string band The Interlopers is inspired as much by the songs of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys as the string quartets of Bartok and the free jazz epiphanies of Billy Bang. After so many years of playing with saxophones, trumpets and drum sets, Mezzacappa has recently found herself called back to the string family, where so much acoustic fun can be had with subtle textures, blending timbres and explosive rhythms. The group is composed of some of the Bay Area's finest improvisers, navigatingMezzacappa's squirley compositions and unusual arrangements.
