Soundtrack To History :: 11.08.16 :: Brooklyn Bowl :: New York City, NY
Last night while election results came in from around the United States, non-partisan voter registration organization HeadCount and Magic Hat Brewing Company presented a special “Soundtrack To History” concert at Brooklyn Bowl in New York. Led by Everyone Orchestra conductor Matt Butler, the lineup included Steve Kimock, Marco Benevento, Karina Rykman, members of the Disco Biscuits Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner, moe.’s Vinnie Amico, Snarky Puppy members Jay Jennings and Chris Bullock, Twiddle’s Mihali Savoulidis, Big Gigantic’s Jeremy Salken, Trey Anastasio Band’s Natalie Cressman and Jans Ingber formerly of The Motet. Special guest Robert Randolph and others also performed last evening at Brooklyn Bowl.
The innovative experience was driven in part by the audience’s reaction to the results of the election that were shown on a large screen behind the band. Butler stood center stage and directed the ensemble through the completely improvised performance. Various genres were touched upon throughout the evening, with vocalists incorporating themes such as “Legalize it,” “It’s not too late” and “We got to come together.” Photographer Adam McCullough was on hand to capture the action.
