This promises to be a night in “Rock Heaven!”
With over 1.5 million downloads, the Grammy-nominated rock band Gov’t Mule is legendary, and now two of its members have formed a new adventure: Planet of the Abts (POA). Each player is highly-accredited in his own right, POA combines three powerful and extraordinary musicians: Gov’t Mule’s renowned drummer Matt Abts and bassist Jorgen Carlsson joined forces with Swedish guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist T-Bone Andersson. Sonically lush, Pink Floydish shimmering soundscapes to full-throttle rock and roll that combines the raw power of the Stooges with Electric Ladyland musicianship, POA’s studio recordings take the listener on a musical journey with stellar production by co-producer Stephen Holroyd and a special appearance by Gov’t Mule band mate Danny Louis on “Planet of the Abts Part 1.” The band’s live shows have ranged from Mt. Jam, sweeping the South-East US & California, Sweden, and are headed to Poland late August, and Brazil in 2013. POA has proven that they sound just as powerful and multi-layered in the flesh as they do on their record! They look forward to sharing this special musical night with the Paper Robots. Enjoy “Anything You Want It To Be” from their debut album (right-click the link and select “Save File As”).
PAPER ROBOTS is the brain child of award winning Israeli guitarist Zak Soulam (Trans Siberian Orchestra, Suzanne Vega), along with his partner, bassist Mike Visceglia (Suzanne Vega, Jorma Kaukonen, Dar Williams), Zak and Mike joined forces with drummer Anton Fig (Kiss,Jagger, Spider, CBS Orchestra/Letterman etc.) assembling a team of A-list players for this show including Tabitha Fair, Jamaican rapper ‘Hawk,’ & special guests Bennett Paster on keys and Hendrick Helmer on guitar. The sound of the band has been compared to Jeff Beck meets Queen meets Pink Floyd- with a world music touch. This is Paper Robots first appearance at the Bowery Ballroom, opening for the fantastic band “POA.” Enjoy “Sunny Slide Up” an instrumental track from the forth coming album (right-click the link and select “Save File As”).
