Dr. Dan Matrazzo Returns to Jam and Funk

Longtime Col. Bruce Hampton collaborator and early Aquarium Rescue Unit contributor Dr. Dan Matrazzo will turn his attention back to jam and funk-inspired music this fall. The keyboardist has largely focused on jazz during the past six years but has confirmed a series of dates with The Looters, the former backing band for Europe’s Rosa King and Saskia Laroo, as well as Blue Note Recording artist Kristina Train (Herbie Hancock, Susan Tedeschi). On his upcoming tour, Dr. Dan will perform material from his fusion album Dan on the Moon and the funky ‘70s covers that characterized his seminal shows at Athens, GA’s Georgia Theatre, Atlanta’s The Brandy House and Charleston, SC’s the Pour House. In addition, his upcoming gigs in Savannah, GA are billed as Widespread Panic after shows and promise some special guests.
