Everyone Orchestra will bring their infectiously entertaining brand of improvisational jams to the Southeast next month. The shows will feature group founder and conductor Matt Butler, as well as Steve Kimock, Jeff Coffin, Jeff Sipe, and soulful chanteuse Tanya Shylock.
Steve Kimock states that "I've been part of numerous memorable EO shows over the past few years and enjoy the energy and music that flows from the Everyone Orchestra concept. What makes Everyone Orchestra performances stand out is the conducting which really creates an exciting synthesis with the band and audience. "
The impetus for this tour evolved out of Everyone Orchestra's performance at Smilefest XII in June where Butler, Coffin, Sipe and Shylock were part of the cast which also included experimental guitar legend Adrian Belew, Darol Anger, Jimmy Herring and many more.
In addition to an impressive musical experience, each EO appearance will include live, on-stage painting by artists whose works will be auctioned to support the efforts of environmental advocacy group Rock the Earth. Working closely with the music industry and its fans, many of whom are concerned with the fate of public lands, air and water, Rock the Earth acts to ensure the existence of a sustainable and healthy environment.
