Mr. Chair with Special Guests Dave Cooper and Chris Bucheit
Thu January 30, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Madison-based Mr. Chair are joined by Dave Cooper (Trumpet) and Chris Bucheit (Guitar) for a night of genre-blending original music. Mr. Chair’s affinity for collaboration with astonishing artists means no two shows are alike. Don’t miss this incredible night of music!
Mr. Chair looks like a jazz quartet, sounds sometimes like a rock group, but in actuality, is contemporary classical music in the guise of a modern band. Classically-trained musicians, well versed in jazz, Mr. Chair creates a new sound using both acoustic and electric instruments.
Their compositions are long-form journeys, telling stories through sound by using and exploring the three pillars of music: melody, harmony, and rhythm. Think cinematic, orchestral, surreal, romantic, emotional, gripping, and always equal parts dissonant and consonant. Their influences are far-reaching, from classical, blues, and rock, to soul, funk, jazz, and beyond. They perform from a library of original works, as well as their own arrangements of iconic pieces from Stravinsky to Bach.
