Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven at The Acoustic
Electric Beethoven is one (if not the) most excited bands on the scene today. Jams that take you through the masses of Beethovens mind and soul through Reed and company's talents. Not to be missed!!!
Electric Beethoven - Reed Mathis, Jay Lane, Todd Stoops, Clay Welch.
While on tour with various projects over the past few years, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis spent his spare time rearranging Beethoven (Symphonies 3 and 6), recording each newly reimagined movement with a long and impressive whos-who list of his musical brethren, including Phishs Page McConnell and Mike Gordon, Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, the Barr Brothers, Robert Walter and Galactics Stanton Moore.
The resulting double album, Beathoven, was released September 2016 on Royal Potato Family records.
When imagining what it would be like to tour these Beethoven masterpieces, Mathis rearranged his rearrangements a second time, this time welding Beethovens motifs and melodies to modern-era dance beats, with plenty of waypoints for the musicians to jump off into heavy, full-band improvisations. Its jamtronica with Beethoven hence, the worlds first CDM (classical dance music) band.
While the albums many special guests will show up at various shows along the way, to tour the album for the next two years, Mathis assembled his very own dream team: Jay Lane (Primus, Ratdog) on drums, Todd Stoops (RAQ / Kung Fu) on keyboards, Cochrane McMillan (Tea Leaf Green) on percussion and laptop, and Clay Welch a young guitar phenom who literally grew up studying Mathis as a bass player while following Mathis then-band, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, from show to show as a fan.
