05/10, Fri 8:30 ~ LIPBONE REDDING & The LipBone Orchestra; also JOE CROOKSTON ~ $20 +$2 processing

Lipbone Redding weaves funky rhythms, catchy original songs, brash humor, soulful singing, and inventive guitar playing with exotic and percussive vocal sounds such as throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning. The result is an experience that is hypnotic, groovy and, for a solo artist without the aid of electronic efx, amazingly complete.

"Audiences find that even in solo performance Redding is equipped to get the party started...and anyone not moving and/or smiling needs to get their pulse checked because there is a good chance that they are dead and just don't know it." -Puremusic

"Lipbone Redding takes the blue eyed soul thing to a whole different level" -John Johnson, KFMU

"I never know exactly how to describe Lipbone, so I don't. What I can describe is how one feels during and after a Lipbone show: blissful, joyful, happy, inspired, elated, and never wanting the night to end" -Honey Sepeda, Talent Buyer

Joe Crookston is an artist, writer, singer, guitar picker, painter, claw hammer banjo player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. You'll be pulled in by the magic and musical world Crookston creates, and you'll end up in the moment, humming & buzzing with the rest of the crowd. His story songs are universal, masterful and his concerts are a grand celebration of all of us.

You'll travel with him along mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through personal stories along the way ...amber eyes, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Grandmother Moons and silver crowns. He is literate, poignant and funny as hell. At the end of the night, you'll likely leave inspired, taking home a renewed sense of what's possible. In Irish culture, there is phrase called the "The long note," which is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments and the community ALL come together and uniteThere IS a "Long Note" -- Joe is courting it and always reaching for it.

From the first strum of his 1948 Gibson, through stories of ruby red dresses, Tinian Island, Dylan Thomas, Taoist parables and drunken roosters you'll be drawn in and deeply moved by his music. Through his spirit and playfulness and his unwavering courage to be himself, you will be moved in ways you didn't expect.
