A MUSICAL ODYSSEY
THE MIAMI DESIGN PRESERVATION LEAGUE and its musical partner, DOUG WIMBISH and his WIMBASH MUSIC FESTIVAL SERIES, have scheduled an eclectic three days of music sure to please the widest and most
discerning of musical tastes ...
FRIDAY (JANUARY 18, 2013) — The Journey begins with an EVENING OF JAZZ. Conducted by virtuoso violinist CHRISTIAN HOWES. The program starts in the 1920s DECO ERA with Vocalist JOHN MARTIN and his DECOTONES, followed by SARAH JANE with THE CHRISTIAN HOWES BAND. The show will continue with the more contemporary Jazz and Blues sounds of ADAM FALCON, and BEVERLY LEWIS & THE MIXX, before CHRISTIAN HOWES returns to close the show with his all-star band and Fiery, Classical-leaning Violin.
SATURDAY (JANUARY 19, 2013) — The Intensity Level is sure to rise with the introduction of LIVING COLOUR BASSIST DOUG WIMBISH, the event's Musical Director and Host. Doug has assembled an eclectic group of local and WimBash Family musicians and bands, sure to deliver an entertaining mix of POP, ROCK, JAZZ, FUSION, REGGAE, and FUNK. Calling his musical collective the DOUG WIMBISH SOUND SYSTEM, Doug will be joined by both longtime and new collaborators (VINX, WILL CALHOUN, KEITH LEBLANC, TARA HARRISON, DJ RAMPAGE GLOBAL), for a retrospective set of his own, in which he will play a collection of TACK>>HEAD tunes, including THE PREMIERE OF "FUNKY OBAMA," a just-released tribute to the UNITED STATES' FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT, appropriately introduced on both ART DECO and MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WEEKEND, just two days before BARACK OBAMA is scheduled to deliver his SECOND INAUGURAL ADDRESS.
SUNDAY (JANUARY 20, 2013) — Staying in the PATRIOTIC MOMENT, after EARTH CODE's instrumental set, TIM CHARRON and his band will move the day forward with their ALL-AMERICAN brand of COUNTRY ROCK. Then, flying in from Maui, RAS LI'L' DREAD brings his HAWAIIAN REGGAE to the BEACH PARTY, followed by Florida Native ALEX BAUGH's Homegrown Florida SURF POP, Philadelphia PHANTASM's Free-Minded, POWER-TOOL ROCK, and closing with Miami's own SUÉNALO and its UNFORGETTABLE FUSION of JAZZ, ROCK, HIP-HOP, FUNK, and AFRO-CUBAN HORNS.
... AND FOR ART DECO WEEKEND GOOD MEASURE, as he did last year, host DOUG WIMBISH will join SUÉNALO, for ONE LAST, LONG, FREE-FOR-ALL, TROPICAL JAM.
DOUG WIMBISH (Musical Director)
One of the world's finest electric bassist, a member of Living Colour, and a favorite of so many of those who he regularly records and tours with, including Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, Annie Lennox, Tara Turunen, and for the past two years, Lauryn Hill.
CHRISTIAN HOWES (Jazz Director)
When Howes was a member of Les Paul's band, the legendary guitarist once said "It used to be you could hardly find a good jazz violinist. ... Nowadays, there are four or five really good players, but none is as good as this guy."
SUÉNALO (The Sound of Miami)
Many names have been used in an attempt to describe on of South Florida's most popular bands ... "Latin Funk," "Fusion," "Jam Band," "Multi-Cultural Cocktail." All true, but incomplete, in describing SUÉNALO's Hip-Hop-Leaning, Big-Horn-driven, High-Energy Vibe.
