An Evening with Mattson/Barraco & Friends
Longtime collaborators and current Dark Star Orchestra members Jeff Mattson and Rob Barraco have confirmed a side-project gig. On November 5, Mattson/Barraco & Friends will perform at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl. Both musicians regularly performed at Bowl owner Peter Shapiro’s previous club Wetlands as members of Zen Tricksters. Barraco’s son Tom will play drums during the show.
Mattson/Barraco shows let the musicians focus on some music outside of the Grateful Dead repertoire. Switching things up, Barraco uses these gigs to play bass instead of keyboards.
