Llewelyn Fix is an exciting and collaborative project between three formidable singer/songwriter/pianists, Donna Lewis, Pamela Sue Mann and Sarah Perrotta. Each of these artists are currently in the process of recording their own individual albums. There is a tangible on-stage-chemistry between them. Together they create lush soundscapes, quirky synth parts, and angelic vocal harmonies.

Pamela Sue Mann is a Berklee College of Music alumna keyboardist and has toured internationally - as a solo artist and as a backing vocalist for Suzanne Vega. Currently signed to the Lux Revelry Recordings label. Her next solo album is scheduled for release this fall in the UK, and includes appearances by Michael Tudor, Gerry Leonard, Yuval Lion, Byron Isaacs, Laurie Anderson, Cat Russell and Karel Holas. (Pamela Sue Mann @facebook.)

Local chanteuse Sarah Perrotta is currently working on her fourth album of atmospheric rock, co-producing with Jerry Marotta at Dreamland Studio in Woodstock, NY. Perrotta has toured internationally with acts including Guster and Jason Colette of Broken Social Scene. (Sarah Perrotta @facebook.)

Donna Lewis is the songstress behind the dance pop classic “I Love You Always Forever.” The Welsh native is an artist of many dimensions, as she has demonstrated with efforts ranging from “At the Beginning,” her charming duet with Richard Marx from the Anastasia soundtrack, to "Be Still", her lovely voice and piano album.

Members of King Crimson, Shriekback and Gabriel's original band bring these genre-less masterpieces into the 21st Century. Seattleites Trey Gunn and Michael Cozzi join esteemed drummer Jerry Marotta and NY keyboardist David Jameson to harness the core of these songs. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Happy Rhodes. Her 4-octave range is the latest edition to this mesmerizing group.

With the addition of Happy on lead vocals, The Security Project is able to dig deeper into Gabriel’s material and take it even further (imagine Kate Bush singing Gabriel tunes with The Security Project as the instrumentalists.) Marotta says “Happy brings with her the chance to play other material we have always talked about doing. Stuff from David Sylvian, Kate Bush and other gems from Trey’s and my past work, in addition to Happy’s catalog. We are excited!”

“The Security Project Live is a beautifully reverential and creative reinterpretation of these Peter Gabriel classics!” – Kevin Killen, engineer of Gabriel's “So” record

Drum legend Terry Bozzio, known for his work with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, UK and his critically acclaimed solo ventures, celebrates his latest release “Terry Bozzio Composer Series” with “An Evening With Terry Bozzio” US tour! This will be a night of solo drumming and include compositions from throughout his career, as well as improvisation. It is by no means a clinic or a workshop. Enjoy an intimate evening of Terry Bozzio and his monster sculpture of a drum kit together for the first time in seated venues. – See more at terrybozzio.com

“An Evening of Solo Drum Music” is a unique, intense,dynamic, spiritualistic, melodic, orchestral, atmospheric, and musical performance on the largest tuned drum & percussion set in the world. Unless you have seen Terry, you have no idea what you are in for. Bozzio is an enigmatic, evocative, and engaging musician whose instrument just happens to be the drums. Terry Bozzio is able to accompany himself with bass note patterns and, at the same time, melodically solo on top with highly developed coordination skills to express a complete musical statement on the drum set alone. Drawing from jazz, classical & ethnic percussion styles from around the world, Terry Bozzio is a storyteller, able to weave a hypnotic spell over audiences and enthrall them with an eclectic experience filled with contrast, variety, intimacy, excitement, & passion.

“I'm looking forward to this extensive US tour in Aug-Nov 2016. I'll have some new pieces to play on my big kit & hopefully some surprises for you in this new show.” - Terry Bozzio

Fresh off the wildly successful King Crimson world tour … STICK MEN!

The improvising rock trio like no other formed in 2008. Playing instruments not seen or heard every day, STICK MEN plays captivating and challenging music that embodies the tradition of forward-looking rock music. Levin and Mastelotto, who have been the powerhouse rhythm section of King Crimson for 20+ years, bring that tradition to every note they play. The band takes its name from Levin’s Chapman Stick: strung with both bass and guitar strings, it functions at times like two instruments. Markus Reuter plays his own self-designed touch guitar - again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And Mastelotto's drumming encompasses not just the acoustic kit, but a distinctive electronic setup too, allowing him to add loops, samples, percussion and more.

The result? Audiences are fascinated by watching just three musicians perform pieces like Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, King Crimson's Red and Lark's Tongues in Aspic, plus their own catalog of unique music and wild improvs ranging from haunting to paint-peeling. Don't let your ears miss out on this & in a great room to hear live music!!

With Special Guests; Bernier & DeCarlo and the PGRA Showband.

Her name is Jane Getter and her band is called JANE GETTER PREMONITION.

According to Guitar Player Magazine, Jane Getter is "the fierciest fretboarding female ever to strap on a Stratocaster".

She has performed and recorded with many music icons, including legendary jazz/blues organist Brother Jack McDuff, Return To Forever drummer Lenny White, vocalist Ursala Dudziak, as well as Jaimoe (of the Allman Brothers), Michal Urbaniak, Kenny Garrett, Regina Carter, Headhunters drummer Mike Clark, The Roots, The Jam, and many others. She also played in The Saturday Night Live Band.

Jane Getter's fourth album "ON" was released Oct 2, 2015 on Madfish Music, a division of Snapper Music. Previous albums include "three" (2012) on Alternity Records, which was submitted for a Grammy nomination in 2013. Her second release "See Jane Run," (2005) on Alternity Records and her first album "Jane" (1999) was released on Lipstick Records.

"ON" features her new killer band, "Jane Getter Premoniton," with Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson, Miles Davis), Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani, the Aristocrats, Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa, Alan Holdsworth) and special guests Alex Skolnick (Testament, Ozzy Osborne) Corey Glover (Living Colour) and Theo Travis (David Gilmore. Porcupine Tree).

On tour with Jane Getter, Premonition is:
Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson, Miles Davis) - keyboards
Alex Skolnick (Testament, Ozzy Osborne, Lamb of God) - guitar
Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai) - bass, vocals
John Mader (Steve Miller, Pat Benatar) - drums


We will be playing the exciting and hard hitting music from our newly released album "ON", on Madfish Music, along with a few older hits from "three" and "See Jane Run." Get ready for some intense jams!

Not only will "On" satisfy any jazz fusion fan, but it will likely appeal to listeners who prefer folk, rock, and/or pop as well. It's relatively accessible yet still full of astounding arrangements and flamboyant timbres, making it a true gem in the genre. - Rebel Noise

The Aristocrats – by any measure the hottest new band in instrumental rock/fusion today – rewrote their own rules for their third studio album, Tres Caballeros. After two fairly raw trio albums, guitarist Guthrie Govan (Steven Wilson, Asia/GPS), bassist Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani, Dethklok) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani) set up camp at legendary Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood, CA, where Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Van Halen all recorded landmark albums. The result: Nine new compositions of greater sonic depth and breadth than ever before, with unique textures and lush layering augmenting the band’s preternatural ability to improvise both individually and as a group at the highest levels possible. But not to worry – it’s all still tempered with a steadfast refusal to take themselves too seriously, and The Aristocrats are still having more fun than a fusion band has any right to have. The Tres Caballeros tour will bring the band’s new musical vision in trio form to stages across North America in their most ambitious jaunt yet.
Tour support is provided by the award-winning Travis Larson Band.
