Chris Annibell DJ Set 5-6PM
Afrokinetic founder and Dubspot Instructor Chris Annibell (host of Clocktower radio series The Sunday Sauce) is known for connecting the musical dots when it comes to soulful dance music. For his in-studio set, he brings his critically acclaimed Afrokinetic sound to the airwaves, mixing house, soul, deep, disco, afrofunk, bass music, jazz, and broken beats. If summer had a soundtrack… this would be it.
75 Dollar Bill 6:30PM
Rick Brown and Che Chen play an idiosyncratic take on Mauritanian music, using homemade percussion and electric guitar. Their music doesn’t strive to any sort of authenticity, yet conjures up the best of African desert music. It is both beautiful and hypnotic and is equally relevant performed in concert form, in a bar, or in an art gallery.
Brian Carpenter’s Ghost Train Orchestra 8PM
The Ghost Train Orchestra was founded in 2006 by composer/arranger Brian Carpenter when he was hired as the musical director for an event marking the 90th anniversary of the historic Regent Theater in Boston. Carpenter began transcribing old 78s of recordings by Fletcher Henderson, Don Redman, Tiny Parham, Fess Williams, and Charlie Johnson and arranged the music for a 9-piece ensemble. The Orchestra’s 2015 album, Hot Town featured saxophonist Colin Stetson with Brian Carpenter (trumpet, harmonica), Andy Laster (alto saxophone), Michael McGinnis (clarinet), Petr Cancura (clarinet, tenor saxophone), Curtis Hasselbring (trombone), Ron Caswell (tuba), Cyntia Sayer (banjo), Karen Waltuch (violin) and Rob Garcia (drums).
