Members Of Lettuce, Thievery Corp, Galactic, TAB & More Perform All-Improv Show [Full Audio]

first_imgLast Friday, May 20th, the Everyone Orchestra returned to Gypsy Sally’s in Washington, DC for yet another stellar performance in the nation’s capital. Matt Butler is joined by an outstanding lineup for this tour, featuring Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff on guitar (Lettuce), Jeff Franca on percussion (Thievery Corporation), Rob Mercurio on bass (Galactic), Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet and vocals (Trey Anastasio Band), Natalie Cressman on trombone and vocals (Trey Anastasio Band), Cris Jacobs, whose birthday it was, on guitar and vocals (The Bridge), and Johnny Kimock on drums (Mike Gordon, K I M O C K).Those that are familiar with Everyone Orchestra know that they bring a 100% improv show, with Butler conducting the band and audience. It means attendees never know just what they are in for. There’s no trying to predict what the band will open or close with, who they’ll cover, or whether there will be a bust out. We just sit back and enjoy the ride. From purely an entertainment standpoint, these shows are some of the most interesting and exciting to watch.The next stop for this crew is Summer Camp Music Festival, but for now you can check out their entire DC show from taper Will Urquhart, below.last_img read more
