Dew Drop Inn Revival: 
GROOVE CITY NIGHT ELEVEN 
featuring  

Steve Lands presents 
REARRANGING THE PLANETS 
One Night Only! 


Hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Creative Assembly Cohort member, trumpeter and arranger Steve Lands presents "Rearranging the Planets," a new musical performance reinterpreting composer Gustav Holst’s influential orchestral suite, "The Planets."

With his original composition, Lands uses Holst’s work as a jumping off point to explore the varied relationships civilizations have had to the heavens over time. While Holst structured his suite—which premiered at the Queen’s Hall in London in 1918—around the Solar System and its Greco-Roman mythological namesakes, "Rearranging the Planets" casts a broader net to consider how societies around the world have looked to the stars. In the words of planetary scientist Carl Sagan, “We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” 

Since debuting this new interpretation of "The Planets" to two sold-out shows at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) for its 2022-2023 season, Lands has further expanded this project into additional suites and inspired sub-combinations of players such as the Draconid Suite and CosmiKrewe, cementing "Rearranging the Planets" as perhaps the city's most expansive and prolific fusion project today, currently now under consideration for philharmonic orchestral commission. 

Join us tonight for the only opportunity to experience the complete "Rearranging the Planets" composition with full band during 2024 New Orleans Jazz Fest week 2024, inside the intimate, historic Dew Drop Inn, where the legacy of Black American Music innovation continues.
