THE EVERYONE ORCHESTRA WITH MICHAEL KANG, MARK KARAN,
JAMIE JANOVER AND MORE TO PLAY SWEETWATER MUSIC HALL
One part fiery conductor, one part sonic ringleader, Matt Butler is the force behind The Everyone Orchestra, an evolving project that embraces the spontaneity and openness of an all-out improv jam, and the musical athleticism and sensitivity of high-powered conducting. Directing a shifting cast of musicians in real time, on the spot, Butler has mastered the art of encouraging skilled musicians to dig deeper, listen closer, and compose stunning songs on the fly. He may wiggle his fingers, point, count instruments in or out, or dash off words on a white board designed to spark ideas.
Butler will be at his best on April 21, 2012, as he brings his live-wire energy to Mill Valley's iconic Sweet Water Music Hall, for an evening of powerful music that will joyfully blur the line between performer and audience. Butler will conduct the skills of multi-instrumentalist Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident), guitarist Mark Karan (Ratdog), hammered dulcimer player and electronic percussionist Jamie Janover, vocalist and flutist Sasha Rose, bass player Mike Sugar (Jambay), and drummer Julian Fritz (Afromassive).
