This is the second round of my Kung-Fu Masters Show that will celebrate the similarities of Kung-Fu, Jazz Music, and Breakdancing.  I now have a choreographer and a sword juggling stilt walker, so we'll see what happens!

It's a true multimedia celebration of Sonic and Physical Movement.

With segues by Bruce Lee.

I've truly done my best to combine my life experiences thusfar to create the most solid hour of A.D.D. fueled entertainment possible. It'll be back to back tunes with video segues and breakin' by one of the top B-boy crews in NYC. I'm taking the next step with this project. Come for the funky grooves, stay for the carnage....

Also let's not forget:

-Live Visual Mixing of the insane Kung-Fu Movie Clips for each section of each song.

Sean Nowell and the Kung-Fu Masters featuring Ari Hoenig 10:30pm-12am:

Inspired by Old School 70's Kung-Fu Movies, Sean Nowell and THE
KUNG-FU MASTERS explode onto the scene with wicked grooves, insane
atari style sounds, blazing fx driven horns, and the explosive energy
of one of the top drummers on the planet: Ari Hoenig. Also let's not

available on YouTube. Also Sound Activated LED T-Shirts. Also we're
filming it, so come get crazy!

"...enough mind-bogglingly elaborate sounds over the course of an hour
to satisfy a mutant millipede with ears in lieu of legs...ranging from
creepy organ dissonance to funky “wah-wah” flickers to vintage
electric piano flourishes and mercurial solos." "An eclectic update
on the more cerebral music that emerged from the 1970's, such as
progressive rock and Sweetnighter-era Weather Report. While the nearly
anarchic harmony suggested free jazz, the boundaries between sections
and Indian/math-rock-like timings show clean synchronization." - John
Engelman - Knocks from the Underground

Simon Yu and The Exotic Experiment 9:15-10:15pm:

The Exotic Experiment is an Interstellar Jazztronica Adventure that
combines Futuristic Drum&Bass, the traditions of World Music and 21st
Century Technology to create an Fx driven Break Beat Biosphere of
Rhythm and Melody. This futuristic ensemble consists of Tenor
Saxophonist Sean Nowell, who pushes the timbral boundaries of the
Saxophone by using cutting edge Multi-Effect pedals; Violinist Tomoko
Omura who takes her Violin to another dimension using wah-wah and
whammy pedals; Bassist Evan Marien who has a magic ring that controls
wireless Dubstep effects and earth shaking grooves; Drummer Tobias
Ralph, a master of electronica and Drum&Bass beats; and the band is
lead by the human multi-tasking machine, Simon C.F. Yu, who Composes
and Arranges the Songs, Shoots the Videos and Photos, Manipulates the
Video Projections, and Controls the Laptop/iPads/Kinect for the
Ultimate Visual/Sound Experience. All Simultaneously. Jazztronica,
Break Beats, Drum & Bass, Fx driven, Interstellar Adventure, World
Music Samples, Jazztronica Music meets Eastern influence.

The Isamu McGregor Band 8-9pm:

"The music that explodes from keyboard player Isamu McGregor and his
buddies is no ordinary sound. With the brute strength of a silverback
gorilla, the stealth of a Bengali tiger and the intelligence of a dude
with a degree from jazz school, these guys put old-school fusion in a
high-speed blender - along with hints of hip hop, modern jazz, rock,
soundscapes and Neo-funk. And they blend with reckless abandon."

featuring: Sean Nowell - Tenor Sax/Fx/Compositions Randy Runyon - Guitar Art Hirahara - Keys Evan Marien - Electric Bass Ari Hoenig - Drums "If the Kung Fu Masters were their own country, music making would be a highly democratic process, with each of the outstanding musicians standing out equally. Digitally echoed sax introductions resounded timelessly in a canyon of psychedelic chords, each likely containing more than a half dozen pitches. In terms of genre, the Masters demonstrated an eclectic update on the more cerebral music that emerged from the 1970's, such as progressive rock and Sweetnighter-era Weather Report. While the nearly anarchic harmony suggested free jazz, the boundaries between sections and Indian/math-rock-like timings showed clean synchronization. More than mere entertainment, the band proved themselves to be masters of the fusion universe, saturating each air molecule with sonic sophistication." John Engelman - Knocks from the Underground "Sean Nowell is a monster tenor saxophonist from Alabama who is slowly taking hold of the New York City scene. I can’t overstate how important to take hold of a crowd right out of the gate and Nowell did just that. He had me! With extremely refreshing compositions and chops that would make Tony Atlas proud - I would advise the New York City jazzbo to keep an eye out on Mr. Nowell." Christopher Lams - JAZZ INSIDE NEW YORK (Aug 4, 2009) Ari Hoenig Press: "He's got Rhythm of every variety" " trickles of rhythm seeping into all the cracks and at regular intervals he changes the rhythm, pouring it out or stoppering it, turning its emphasis around, subdividing or refocusing it and making it follow the melody." ---Ben Ratliff New York Times "Ari Hoenig is one of the most maniacally obsessive, spasmodic and musical drummers in jazz." ---JAZZ TIMES "expansive technique, propulsive time and deep musicality" "his style is characterized by a crisp attack and quick attentive reflexes. Ari Hoenig approaches jazz drumming with manic glee, and yet he's exacting with texture and pulse, an irrepressibly kinetic drummer ---Nate Chinen, NEW YORK TIMES "Ari Hoenig is a Magician!" ---BATTEUR MAGAZINE "Ari Hoenig, a disconcerting phenomenon of the drums" ---JAZZMAN MAGAZINE
