Hot Buttered Rum, one of the hardest-working and fastest-rising stars in the musical firmament, often described as a rock band playing bluegrass instruments, the band melds blues, folks, bluegrass, jazz, and rock, and the members’ varying degrees of classical training lead them to invest heavily in group composition. The widespread appeal of HBR’s music stems not only from the band’s musical versatility and prolific songwriting, but also from the magnetic chemistry the group creates onstage together. It is this chemistry that is propelling the band to ever greater success.
THE EVERYONE ORCHESTRA is a revolving cast of stellar musicians brought together by drummer/conductor Matt Butler, Michael Kang of String Cheese Incident, Asher Fulero of Surrounded by Ninjas, Dave Brogan from ALO, and the entire Hot Buttered Rum Band. EO’s interactive, improvisational experiences are designed to create space for each performer’s musical personality to shine, engage the audience as participants in the jam and to facilitate a massive celebratory coming together.
What makes Everyone Orchestra performances stand out from other musical collaborations is the conducting and audience participation. Butler facilitates the jams using giant cue cards, hand signals and more which direct the musicians and audience alike in flowing, playful and incredibly dynamic co-creations.
Tonight's show is proudly supported by: KAOS 89.3 fm Community Radio
