Michael Beling plays TWO sets for his BIRTHDAY!

Saturday - April, 07 @ 5:00pm

To Celebrate his birthday, Michael Beling wanted to play TWO sets instead of his usual ONE!
How could we say no?
BLUE OPENS AT 4:30 and music starts at 5:00 (That's an hour earlier than usual, folks!)
5:00-6:00 PM
Bedlam & Eunoia
Original jazz mixed with world music, odd meters, classical, and film score influence. Ranging from the tender to the fervorous.
Michael Beling- piano and bass pedals
Barry Saunders- woodwinds
Eric LaPerna- hand percussion
6:30-7:30 PM
Hard bop, jazz-funk, and some rock. From the Irreverently joyful to the serious, the sensibilities of the blues always shine through. Largely original music, we will play one piece each by Stevie Wonder and Neil Young.
Michael Beling- organ, electric piano, and bass pedals
Barry Saunders- woodwinds
John Mettam- drums
