Be More Chill

  • The Pershing Square Signature Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This is one of the craziest combinations of instruments I've ever played: Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Flute, Alto Recorder, Keyboard 2, and Vocoder (which I sometimes speak Japanese into). Oh and did I mention that the trumpet player is also playing theremin?

This show is insane, get tickets before they sell out! See what all the hype is about.
