Thu, Jun 24 at 8pm
DJPK and Milo Matthews come together to lay out an all-out dance party sure to get you shakin' and movin' on the dance floor. Let's forget about all your worries and come together for a night of groovy git-down!
Born and raised in Boston, Milo began playing the bass at the age of 12. Through his teens and early 20’s, he busked the subways making a living by playing for eight hours a day and he credits the experience with teaching him invaluable lessons about music and performing. Writing, recording and composing occupies one side of Milo’s artistry and producing the music for other musicians addresses another one of his valuable skill sets.
For ten years, Alaska was home before moving to Hawaii for four years. Milo has travelled extensively throughout the United States and Europe performing his music for all he encountered. Over the past 30 years, Milo has refined his technique and musicianship and perfected his skills in recording and producing. To date, Milo has recorded, produced and engineered over 25 albums of his music and for other artists.
MORE ABOUT MILO:
Milo’s style of music ranges from jazz, blues, rock, pop, funk to even folk. He performs his own originals as well as adds his unique flavor to 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and present cover songs. He demonstrates versatility unlike any other bassist by using a drum pad, effects pedal and a looping machine which provide his unique rhythm, bass line, keys and lead guitar turning him into an unstoppable one-man show! It’s very rare to hear Milo play the same song exactly the same way which makes each performance fresh and new!
PETE KARTSOUNES: Singer-Songwriter Pete Kartsounes has done it again! He has created a whole new genre of his own with the new funky and uber fresh DJPK! I'd say if one had to describe DJPK it would be like this: If Robert Plant and Beats Antique had a baby and it was raised by a 1980's break dancer in India that loved shredding guitar jamband rock, then you would get close to the sounds of DJPK. Experimenting with an all-improvised approach, worldly instrumentation, big beats, funky bass, electric guitar, flutes, piano, Rhodes, B3 Hammond Organ, and a plethora of other sounds, DJPK is a flavorsome beat salad with a side of soul, sure to get you movin' and groovin and spreadin' the love!
