Back​ ​in​ ​2015,​ ​longtime​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​musical​ ​collaborators​ ​Johnson,​ ​Murphy,​ ​and​ ​Bortnick,​ ​were joined​ ​by​ ​Kang​ ​for​ ​a​ ​late-night​ ​performance​ ​at​ ​New​ ​York​ ​City’s​ ​DROM​ ​following​ ​The​ ​String Cheese​ ​Incident’s​ ​performance​ ​at​ ​The​ ​Theatre​ ​at​ ​Madison​ ​Square​ ​Garden​ ​under​ ​The​ ​Aaron Johnston​ ​Experiment​ ​moniker.​ ​The​ ​“live​ ​trance​ ​abstraction”​ ​turned​ ​into​ ​a​ ​wild​ ​night​ ​of improvisation​ ​and​ ​collaboration,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​reunion​ ​has​ ​been​ ​brewing​ ​ever​ ​since​ ​that​ ​performance. Now,​ ​the​ ​collaboration​ ​of​ ​talented​ ​musicians​ ​will​ ​make​ ​a​ ​much-anticipated​ ​return​ ​in​ ​January 2018,​ ​this​ ​time​ ​bringing​ ​in​ ​Big​ ​G’s​ ​Dom​ ​Lalli​ ​to​ ​join​ ​the​ ​fold.​ ​This​ ​combination​ ​of​ ​uber-talented artists​ ​has​ ​all​ ​the​ ​makings​ ​of​ ​a​ ​truly​ ​unique​ ​musical​ ​experience.
