The Zen Tricksters had a ball travelin’ light with only their acoustic guitars last year, and will keep some of their acoustic repertoire alive within their typical long two-set shows, even though they have switched back to an electric 4-piece format this year.

They began 2004 with a bang at Tribeca Rock Club in NYC with a Prankster-style New Year’s show where they treated the audience to 5 solid hours of playing and lots of eye candy, which ranged from psychedelic light shows to living glowstick figures to snake dancers. After a few shows in the northeast in early January, the Tricksters are heading down south for nine shows in ten days in VA, NC and SC, and then on to the Midwest in February. A west coast tour will follow in late winter or early spring. With their eclectic style and huge working repertoire of well-crafted original pieces, traditional bluegrass and hillbilly jazz classics, and, of course, tunes by the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and inventive interpretations of any and all songs that catch their fancy, the Tricksters are once again bringing it on as electric road warriors.
