For those who are in the know about percussion, the name Terry Bozzio is well known. He has played with such luminaries as Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Missing Persons and UK. On Monday, September 22, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Terry will be giving a solo performance on the World's Largest Tuned Drum and Percussion Set at Nighttown in Cleveland.
The event precedes Bozzio’s North American Tour 2014 “An Evening with Terry Bozzio” and is in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his first drum lesson. Over the course of the tour, Terry will perform in over 40 cities including San Diego, Jacksonville, Montreal, Vancouver and Los Angeles. The evening will include a night of solo drumming that includes compositions from his stellar career as well as improvisation. This is an intimate evening with Terry Bozzio as he masters his monster drum kit and takes the audience on a unique, intense, dynamic, spiritualistic, melodic, orchestral, atmospheric, and musical performance on the largest tuned drum & percussion set in the world.
Bozzio is an enigmatic, evocative and engaging musician who is able to accompany himself with bass note patterns while playing simultaneously solo on the drums by using a highly developed set of coordination skills. His style includes jazz, classical, & ethnic percussion styles from around the world and he is able to weave a story that leaves the audience in a hypnotic spell.
This tour follows two tremendously successful outings in 2012 and 2013 where Terry had sold out performances all across the world with his mixture of tuned toms, classical forms & structures, ambient electronic loops, and atmospheric percussion effects combined with fiery drumming.
His one Cleveland tour date will be at Nighttown on Monday, September 22, 2014 and included on the stage will be examples of his [RHYTHM] + [SKETCH] artwork that will serve as the stage backdrop.
