About the artist....
Lipbone Redding is an Inventive voicestrumentalist and Southern Gentleman, who creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. Though his songs stand alone, his entire show is greased with uncanny riffs of vocal trumpeting (AKA THE LIP-BONE*), booming mouth percussion, hilarious side moments and esoteric lyrics.
Witty, soulful, and sincere, this freespirit has caught fire in Manhattan's downtown scene. Lipbone has been accused of being a Soul singer, Folkie, Vocaltrickster, Bluesman and experimental Cowboy. He neither accepts these classifications nor denies them. The influences of his music are as far reaching as Disco, Beatboxing, Hindustani, Hip Hop, Punk, Country, 70's Soul and Sun Ra."
Lipbone has performed to worldwide audiences including venues in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. He is a seemingly tireless performer who does more than 200 live shows per year. He has performed at New York City’s Lincoln Center, opened for acts such as Hot Buttered Rum String Band and Dr. John, has gigged and recorded with members of Chris Berry's PANGEA and his music has been Licensed for movie, animations and television by FOX and HBO.
When & Where
Coffee With Conscience Concert Series
Ahrre Maros is the owner of Ahrre's Coffee Roastery in Westfield & the Fair Trade Coffee Company on line. He has been presenting live musical events since 1992, when he first opened the Common Ground Cafe in Summit. The Cafe is gone now, but Ahrre continues bringing Professional Touring Musical Artists to the area for the benefit of the local community and several local Charities.
Currently, Ahrre presents the Coffee With Conscience Concert Series in Westfield, which is a Seven-show Series which acts as a fund-raiser—raising much needed funds for worthy causes—while providing the participants with the opportunity to attend quality performance events near their homes, providing an audience with a cultural experience, providing artists with a venue to display their talents, and generally strengthening the local community by bringing a group of people together for an evening of music in a comfortable setting.
