"While U W8 #MBTA Late", an evening at the Lily Pad featuring musicians who would be equally at home giving late night concerts on the T. If the T is concerned about increasing ridership on their extended Friday and Saturday nights, here's the recipe: provide a relaxed atmosphere (no sardine cramming) where entertainers of the caliber of Gene Shinozaki & Max Jackson, Keytar Bear,and Ben Golder-Novick make the experience of waiting an upbeat scene .... not a drag.
Shinozaki, Jackson,Keytar Bear,andGolder-Novick will join house band Dirty Water Brass Band for a night of live performance that will show the T what it takes to increase their passenger-base. Great entertainment for the cause of bailing the T out of debt, increasing ridership with satisfied customers happy to drop their wallets into the musicians' hats!
Ben Golder-Novick (multi-instrumentalist) utilizes a looping machine to loop all of his instruments and perform both original and cover songs as a one-man band. The songs exhibit a primal groove and have been described as "lo-fi guttah funk." These songs are displayed on his latest solo EP, "Lucky Star." More on his work can be found at www.benthesaxguy.net, www.youtube.com/benthesaxguy13, www.reverbnation.com/rpk/bio/1183900, to name just a few.
Keytar Bear, the mysterious bear busker, has way too many youtube links. For starters: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c6m3GQdJN0, www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeHYo7LU6Wc, www.youtube.com/watch?v=81PSxf0eVk8. Folks are starting to keep track of him via this fan page, www.facebook.com/welovekeytarbear.
Dirty Water Brass Band has played around New England and enjoys making contemplative spaces less so. They refer to themselves as a visual band, since they're pretty energetic to watch. www.dirtywaterbrassband.com
