This Friday night, Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven will play a “Resonance Field Test” based on the music of Beethoven at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. EB has just revealed Lettuce/Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno will perform with the band during their Brooklyn Bowl debut.
Bassist Reed Mathis is joined in Electric Beethoven by guitarist Clay Welch, drummer Jay Lane and keyboardist Todd Stoops. Mathis, Stoops and Krasno recently took part in the first performance from Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann’s latest project, Bill Kreutzmann’s Rooster Conspiracy. Watch selected jams from Rooster Conspiracy’s jam session in Hawaii:
The show will be a continuation of Electric Beethoven’s Resonance Field Tests, which draws “spiritual inspiration” from both Ken Kesey’s Acid Tests and Andy Warhol’s Factory. To that end, the group will enhance the evening’s visuals and increase participant stimulation with a vintage liquid light show, via the original Liquid Light Labs. Krasno will be improvising on Beethoven movements with the band for a portion of the show.
