The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series and Twilight Music present an evening of brass-fueled, swinging music of New Orleans by the Soggy Po’ Boys, on Sunday, October 8 at 3:00 pm at West River Park in Brattleboro, VT.
The only ensemble endorsed by all original Mahavishnu Orchestra members including John McLaughlin & Jan Hammer.
2023 is the 50th Anniversary of the Mahavishnu Orchestra’s classic, influential BIRDS OF FIRE. The band will perform it in entirety, as well as a “Jeff Beck mini-set”, a nod to Jan Hammer’s connections to both artists.
“Just a little note of appreciation for what you are bringing back to life. This musical period was the beginning of finding my own way in music, and to hear you guys playing those tunes in such an unbelievable way is quite amazing. Great job!! Keep up the good work.”
“What is primary to me is that they are all great musicians. Everyone has to be a good improviser. You have to be able to take them to another place… These guys get there.”
– Jan Hammer
