Gary Regina & The Play Date Band
Sound Bites Grill in Uptown Sedona is looking forward to the return of Gary Regina and the Play Date Band.
Gary moved from Northern Arizona to California a few years ago and has been missed in the local music scene.
Gary Regina has been a professional musician for over 30 years. As comfortable with straight-ahead jazz as he is with world beat, hip-hop, blues, swing, rock or funk, Garys abilities transcend many styles and genres, illustrating an incredible diversity of musical influences. He is well known for his looping and playing multiple instruments at one time.
Currently, Regina performs all over the United States and Australia, focusing on his multi-instrumental solo performance, which utilizes looping technology. Playing a wide variety of instruments (including woodwinds, ethnic flutes, saxophones, percussion, guitar, wind synthesizer and a drum machine),
Regina creates unique soundscapes of trip-hop, world and ambient music. Then, with incredible creativity (and a little help from technology), the trance-like rhythmical sounds gradually build, looping on top of each other, until you are sure there are ten musicians! Your ears will have a hard time reconciling what they hear with what your eyes see, he is a master looper, and he will make it sound like an entire orchestra amazing talent!
This tour Gary has three performances in Sedona at Sound Bites Grill.
Wednesday September 25th Gary will be performing his solo looping show from 6-9pm during Wineaux Wednesday. There is no cover for the evening of music, but If you partake in the wine tasting, there is a $15 charge for that.
Wednesday October 2nd Gary will be performing with Eric Miller (I can't wait) also from 6-9pm during Wineaux Wednesday. There is no cover for the evening of music, but If you partake in the wine tasting, there is a $15 charge for that.
Saturday, October 5th @ 7pm, Regina will perform with his band "Play Date"
He led his own original bands for 18 years, whose styles ranged from acid jazz and new age to world beat. A pioneer of the world beat movement from the late 70s, Gary continues to incorporate world rhythms and influences into his compositions today. Tickets are $10/$15/$20 and reservations are strongly suggested. The band is great to dance to as well.
