About The Crimson ProjeKct:
King Crimson members Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto have combined the forces of their trios, the Adrian Belew Power Trio and Stick Men, for the Two of a Perfect Trio tour.
“It's a rare treat, both for us in the band, and for the audience, for three King Crimson members to be together onstage,” says Levin. “And the supporting cast are excellent players in their own right.”
The performance will feature two sets with an extended encore of music all featuring King Crimson material. The show will kick off with sets by Stick Men, featuring Mastelotto on electronic and acoustic percussion, Markus Reuter on his self-designed Touch Guitar, and Levin on Chapman Stick; and the Adrian Belew Power Trio with Belew on guitar and vocals, bassist Julie Slick, and NYC drummer Tobias Ralph.
For the extended “Crim-centric” encore, fans will be treated to the three Crimson members Belew, Levin and Mastelotto, covering some of their favorite pieces from their work in King Crimson.
“King Crimson is an elite club,” says Belew. “There have only been seven members in the last 30 years. Having Tony, Pat and myself onstage, three legitimate Crimson players, will make this as close as currently possible to the actual thing.”
To make this concert even more colossal, the trios will combine to close out the show.
“Then the others will come out to join us as a double trio, fairly well covering what Crimson had in the 90's lineup,” says Levin. “It should be a big challenge, wild music, and great fun.”
Toting the loaded description “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk”, local favorites Consider The Source will open the show.
About the Venue:
Located within the South Street Seaport, the Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club is New York City's hottest summer venue for outdoor events. Schmooze with guests under the stars on the 200-ton sandy beach. Lounge on couches with your feet in the sand. Enjoy the concert in the 10,000 sq. foot open-air beer tent with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge as your backdrop. And if summer rain showers pop up, you stay dry under the tent with a pint of beer.
This is truly a unique and intimate setting to hear and see live music.
