Jon Stickley Trio

August 16th
8pm (Doors open at 7:30pm)
The originality and sheer energy of this genre-bending ensemble serves as a welcome wake up call for those who experience it. With roots in gypsy jazz, bluegrass, and hip-hop in an “exhilarating all-acoustic swirl” (Acoustic Guitar), Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin, set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums. The three have fused their collective styles into a repertoire of exciting and innovative original music along with some captivating covers. The New York Times’s Nate Chinen writes: "There’s hardy cohesion among the players—no less on the Gypsy standard 'Valse de Wasso' than on 'Darth Radar,' a turbocharged original with a ska upbeat and a shredding melody. And when Mr. Stickley and friends turn to bluegrass, as on 'The High Road,' by Tim O’Brien, they sound both respectful and free." They come to Michigan with a new release, "Maybe Believe."
