On June 22nd the steel pan driven avant-garde trio will be in town for a show at Boone Saloon, can you please make sure this show receives calendar listing and spotlight consideration?  They will be releasing their new full length self titled album July 9th on Ropeadope Records (Medeski Martin & Wood, Snarky Puppy, Charlie Hunter).   Said to have “a Thelonius Monk-like attitude with a Mozart creativity that works.” (Pan on the Net), the Fourchestra’s upcoming Summer release will feature guest collaborators like Grammy winning Victor Wooten and Howard Levy (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones), fiddler Casey Driessen, and horn players from the Michael Buble Band. The live show is a combination of brilliant composition met with innovative, playful and contagious energy.
