    Witness a special sneak preview of the next musical revolution…
    After cutting his teeth in Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and Tea Leaf Green, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis established himself in the Grateful Dead world with membership in Billy & The Kids, The Rhythm Devils, Mickey Hart Band, Steve Kimock Band and the Golden Gate Wingmen. But Mathis’ first love was always Ludwig van Beethoven. With his new Electric Beethoven project, Mathis did the unthinkable and fused all of his worlds together, bringing old world masterpieces by Beethoven to today’s premiere musical improvisors and updating their arrangements for a modern jam band. The result is the world’s first CDM (“classical dance music”) ensemble.

    Presenting his new, dance-ready arrangements of Beethoven’s compositions to an elite class of musicians, Mathis enlisted Phish’s Mike Gordon and Page McConnell, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Joe Russo and Marco Benevento, Galactic’s Stanton Moore, The Greyboy Allstars’ Robert Walter, Pearl Jam’s Matt Chamberlain, both of The Barr Brothers (Brad and Andrew), and many more musical visionaries for aspects of the project that have yet to be unveiled (stay tuned!).

    In the meantime, Mathis activated a core-group featuring Jay Lane (Primus / RatDog), Todd Stoops (RAQ / John Kadlecik Band), Cochrane McMillan (Tea Leaf Green) and America’s newest guitar hero, Clay Welch for the project’s big debut — the “Electric Beethoven Acid Test” on Saturday, August 6 at Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park.

    As an exclusive treat for local Bay Area music fans, Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven will host a special sneak preview night on Tuesday, August 2nd, unveiling jammed-out CDM versions of Beethoven selections from his finest symphonies.
    This will be the first public performance of the band that’s had America talking for months and their only public Bay Area appearance (outside of Outside Lands) for many more months. See them on Tuesday and the bragging rights will be yours to keep.

    http://www.sangeronimomusic.com

    Bio:
    Rolling down a dusty west Marin back-road with the ocean breeze in their face. San Geronimo push the boundaries of their musical reach to perpetual heights as they soar above the Redwoods. Echoing pedal steel, ripping guitar, a rumbling rhythm section and a pair of sharp tonged troubadours splitting the “front man” duties find San Geronimo tapping into the deep musical roots of the northern California hills to bring you a sound that you’ll find fresh and new yet oh so familiar.

    Described by the San Francisco Bay Guardian as “Hard charging Americana” the dually fronted outfits second to none songwriting draws from the inkwells of both Jeremy D’Antonio and Darren Nelson, giving the band a level of diversity rarely matched in today’s music scene. Add the wizardry of Dave Zirbel’s charging pedal steel and lead guitar lines that twist and turn seamlessly through the bordering on chaotic rhythms provided by drummer Dan Luehring who’s only tether to earth may be the pounding but melodic bass lines.
    The band’s 2 1/2 year residency at Terrapin Crossroads has afforded them the perfect venue to hone in their ever-present chemistry and deep sense of camaraderie. The results are undeniable and infectious. Having recently shared the stage with the likes of Colonel Bruce Hampton, Trigger Hippie, Billy Kreutzmann, Wynona Judd, Robert Earl Keen and Phil Lesh, the band is firing on all cylinders as they careen down that dusty road with the speakers blaring!

    New Nashville Brunch ft. The Terrapin All-Stars

    Grahame Lesh, Elliott Peck, Dave Zirbel, Connor O’Sullivan, and Cochrane McMillan bring the “New Nashville” sound to the stage.  New Nashville can best be described as almost a throwback to where the songwriters of the time actually performed their own songs with the top Nashville session players, but fast forward to the present day. Today performers, such as Dave Rawlings Machine, Gillian Welch, Jason Isbell, among others, are bringing that classic Nashville sound back with a new, modern feel. The band tonight will be showcasing some of these artist’s tunes to give you a feel of that New Nashville Sound that is happening. Show starts at 7:30pm, no cover charge, and all ages welcomed.
