Flex on stage at Dazzle

Art Lande (piano),
Gonzalo Teppa (bass),
Dru Heller (drums)

Last August, Flex showed their muscle in public then headed into the studio and laid down a full album of excellent original music. The CD will be ready and available! Stop in at the Muse to witness Flex playing in prime form. Hear something old and revived, something new, and a lot of something completely different. The album is fantastic! Come share and celebrate outstanding live music in the Boulder area.

Khabu (guitar), Bill McCrossen (bass), Mark Miller (woodwinds), Art Lande (piano)

Yes! A themed evening with S.

It's not as if they've gone extinct, but a themed concert adds something shared and tangilble to the recipe for the evening. A launchpad. Some conrete. A giggle or something to ponder. And with Want Some Lobster? Chief Longnose Meets the Pilgrims, there is a lot of intrigue and latitude to work with for both audience and band member. (Art will be providing hints/suggestions, and/or an explanation of the title.)

Don't hesitate to get your seat at the table (house concerts are by reservation only), and engage with the story of Chief Longnose and why he might be serving up Lobster in Colorado.

A Special House concert at Chuck Ceraso's Gallery/Studio

The Gallery/Studio is located in Lafayette, CO (Google map)
Suggested donation is $15
7:00 pm

House concerts are by invitation only. To request your invitation, Email Chuck at chuck.ceraso@artlande.com or call 303-898-3649 and indicate
   - the number of people in your party
   - your email/phone/contact info.

Note: Dinner, lobster and otherwise, is entirely up to you and it must be limited to an image. Something to be conjured with aural stimulus, and to be created and consumed through and between your ears. This imaginary dinner will be perfectly prepared to your liking and if not, please have your imaginary server handle the situation. After all, Chief Longnose will be your House Manager for the evening's dining experience.
