Electric Beethoven w/ Mother Tongue
February 14 @ 8:00 pm
After cutting his teeth in Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and Tea Leaf Green, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis established himself in the Grateful Dead world with membership in Billy & The Kids, The Rhythm Devils, Mickey Hart Band, Steve Kimock Band and the Golden Gate Wingmen. But Mathis’ first love was always Ludwig van Beethoven. With his new Electric Beethoven project, Mathis did the unthinkable and fused all of his worlds together, bringing old world masterpieces by Beethoven to today’s premiere musical improvisers — an elite class of live performers who have individually made names for themselves in every genre except classical: jazz, funk, folk, blues, and jam rock.
Mother Tongue is a live hip-hop project molding various established Colorado artists into an eclectic, funky super group. With ripping organ, face-melting shred guitar, fatty bass lines, and a smooth rhythm are all refined to back the clever colloquialisms of our MC and Lead singers. Mother Tongue steeps in funk, R&B, and unTZ, with instrumental jams and the occasional freestyle to keep our audience moving and feeling the groove. Mother Tongue is by the people, for the people.
