COLORADO PERFORMANCES FOR THE EVERYONE ORCHESTRA
BEGIN MAY 20 IN FORT COLLINS W/OPENING ACT ACORN PROJECT
The Everyone Orchestra
embarks on a run of Colorado shows at the end of May including a stop in Fort Collins and three performances in
Denver from May 20 – May 23. This rendition of the project features a stellar lineup of nationally renowned talent
including Steve Kimock
(SKB, Zero), Kyle Hollingsworth (SCI),
Jennifer Hartswick (Trey
Anastasio Band), Dave
Watts (The Motet), Jamie
Janover (Zilla), Garrett
Sayers (The Motet), Jamie
Masefield (Jazz Mandolin Project) and YOU.
How do you fit into the Everyone Orchestra? The fully improvised performance is the brainchild of founder
Matt Butler, who
incorporates the skill set of the assembled all-star lineup with the voices and sounds of
the audience for a unique and fun musical experience.
Literally an orchestra where everyone in the room takes part, the Everyone Orchestra brings together a
form of musical improvisation that is rarely accomplished to this degree. While the band actually only consists of
one key player – conductor Matt Butler – each show features a rotating cast of up to a dozen players on
any given night. Drawing on the wealth of talent local to the area he visits, or those performing at a festival, the
concept lures local and national players who are often performing for the first time together and the audience of
course, is performing right along.
The four-night traveling event will kick off at Hodi's Half Note in Fort Collins on May 20 and will continue to
Quixote's True Blue (formerly Owsleys) on Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22. The Sunday, May 23 performance is
billed as a happy hour show featuring an acoustic set (minus Hollingsworth), and with other special guests yet to be
The locally based organization, Conscious Alliance, will also be hosting a food drive, benefiting the Pine Ridge
Reservation in South Dakota. All patrons that donate 10 non-perishable food items will receive a free limited-
edition Everyone Orchestra 2010 Colorado Tour poster created by the very special artist, Ryan Kerrigan.
Donations can be made with Conscious Alliance representatives at the front entrance of each venue.
