Joe Russo Will Join Matt Trowbridge in New York
Furthur/Duo drummer Joe Russo helped RANA keyboardist/vocalist Matt Trowbridge complete his first solo album Radio Soap Star Opera in 2009. The album features contributions from many of their musical associates, including members of Ween, RANA and The Duo. Russo and Trowbridge supported the album with a few shows as The Me and the Zoo live band in 2010, but have been busy with a variety of other commitments for most of 2011 (Trowbridge is a teacher by day). On Monday, August 8 Russo and Trowbridge will share the stage once again at New York’s Bowery Electric. The night will also feature the Erik Deutch Band and Scott Metzger’s Wolf! Project. Metzger plays with Trowbridge in RANA and Russo in Bustle in Your Hedgerow while Deutch and Russo were members of the ‘90s jazz/jamband Fat Mama.
