While on tour with various projects over the past few years, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis spent his spare time rearranging Beethoven (Symphonies 3 & 6), recording each newly reimagined movement with a long and impressive “who’s who” list of his musical brethren, including Phish’s Page McConnell and Mike Gordon, Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, Robert Walter and Galactic’s Stanton Moore. The resulting double album, “Beathoven,” will be released this September 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 Beethoven’s motifs and melodies to modern-era dance beats, with plenty of waypoints for the musicians to jump off into heavy, full-band improvisations. It’s jamtronica with Beethoven – hence, the world’s first CDM (“classical dance music”) band!
Come jam (and dance!) with us for a night of reimagined Beethoven masterpieces.
