Seaside Sessions – DRKWAVConcerts & Performances
The Rhythm Foundation invites you on a musical odyssey with Seaside Sessions, a series of three concerts featuring innovative jazz, international music, and fresh new sounds at the open air North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach. Third concert features DRKWAV with John Medeski, Adam Deitch and Skerik; Opening set by Aroze Troubadou. DRKWAV is led by John Medeski (keyboards), Skerik (saxophones) and Adam Deitch (drums). Medeski is known best as one third of Medeski Martin and Wood; Adam Deitch for his work with groups like Lettuce and Break Science; and Skerik as an iconoclastic innovator of ‘saxophonics’. The three master musicians have come together in DRKWAV – a delivery system for improv-heavy psychedelic fusions. Their sound is informed as much by the torqued jazz-rock of the early 1970s as by the dark ambient and drum ’n’ bass music of the early ’90s, while still pursuing an indeterminacy of style, anchored with cinematic overtures. True to its name, the trio revels in the pitch black, yet continually discover beauty and shed light through sonic exploration. Tickets are $25 advance / $30 at the door.Children under 6 admitted free.
