Show Info

Mike Dillon is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980?s as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization. Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with ? - on tour, stage or in the studio ? - reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility. Artists such as: Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, Polyphonic Spree, Brave Combo, Sex Mob, Galactic, Secret Chief?s 3, Karl Denson, Steven Bernstein, Charlie Hunter, James Singleton, George Porter Jr., Johnny Vidocavich and Bob Schneider. His individual projects include: Critter?s Buggin?, Garage A Trois, Billy Goat, Mike Dillon?s Go-Go Jungle, Hairy Apes BMX, Malachy Papers, the Dead Kenny G?s, who regularly open for Primus, and his latest, The Mike Dillon Band. Joining MDB is Seattle?s Unsinkable Heavies. Unsinkable Heavies are a subgroup of the mega all-star Funk Orchestra, Polyrhythmics. The music is decidedly greasier, dirtier, and full of EGO ! Big solos, spinning leslies and a no holds barred, ?taking it to the top? approach to classic soul/jazz tunes and their own compositions. ?Raw Musical Adventurism? at it?s finest! They will get the dance floor warmed up really nicely to guard against that December chill! $8
