Event description

Description

The performance begins at 7:30; doors open 30 minutes prior.
Online sales end at 6PM day of the show. Tickets available at the door unless sold out.

Combining DJ electronics and upright acoustic bass in a real-time meeting of the technological and analog, Rourke and Ballou will channel jazz freedom with the audacity of live sampling and record scratching, by reverse engineering traditional sounds, and re-constructing them into an improvised turntable & bass jazz-synthesis.

Mister Rourke
www.misterrourke.com
Incorporating scratching, sampling, and mixing alongside top musicians since 1989, Boston based scratch DJ Mister Rourke has established himself as an innovator in using the turntable as a live instrument. His focus has been playing in improvisational ensembles and is well known for the quality of his ears, the size of his sound arsenal, and for pushing the creative envelope. Rourke has performed and recorded with countless bands in several genres of music including Hip Hop, Funk, Reggae, Jazz, Electronic, Blues, Ambient, Moroccan, African, and others.

His work, which has earned him four Boston Music Awards, has been featured in Billboard Magazine, MTV’s The Real World and HBO’s The Chris Rock Show. His extensive range of projects include: the dub-trance collective Club d’Elf, the annual Jazz Meets Hip Hop concert at The Cleveland Jazz Festival, re-mixes for Medeski, Martin and Wood, and Soulive, multiple DJ residencies at area clubs, and "Turntables as an Instrument" a DJ workshop he developed and teaches at public schools, non-profit organizations, music festivals and colleges.


Marty Ballou
Marty Ballou is high on the list of New England’s “first-call” bassists. Highly regarded nationally for his work in the jazz and blues fields, he is equally at home in other genres including folk, rock, pop and Americana. He has accumulated a substantial list of credits in the studio and on the stage, both on the upright and electric bass guitar. He has lent his special talents on his instrument, as an arranger, and as a producer to dozens of performers including Peter Wolf, Herb Ellis, Roomful of Blues, Cheryl Wheeler, Duke Robillard, John Hammond and Jimmy Witherspoon.
