Gary Lucas solo
special guest Mika Vember

Donnerstag, 23.05.2013 (20:30 - 23:45) @ Reigen Live

Der Rolling Stone bezeichnete GARY LUCAS als einen der "besten und kreativsten Gitarristen Amerikas", das New Yorker Magazine als "Gitarrenhelden des denkenden Mannes"; die New York Times nannte ihn den "Gitarristen mit einem globalen Beat" und der Guardian (UK) einen "legendären, unkonventionellen Gitarristen". Darüber hinaus ist Gary Lucas auch ein Grammy-nominierter Songwriter - er war Co-Autor von Jeff Buckleys Hits "Grace" und "Mojo Pin" - sowie Komponist für Film und Fernsehen.
In Wien tritt Gary Lucas in seiner Lieblings-Besetzung auf: solo-elektrisch und akustisch spielt er zwei eklektische 45-Minuten-Sets, die die ganze Bandbreite seines umfangreichen Repertoires abdecken. Im Mittelpunkt stehen dabei sowohl die Songs selbst als auch Garys instrumentales Feuerwerk.
Als Special Guest hat sich Gary für diesen Abend die aufstrebende junge österreichische Musikerin Mika Vember eingeladen; sie wird den Gesangspart in Garys Tribut für seinen verstorbenen musikalischen Partner Jeff Buckley übernehmen.

GARY LUCAS has been hailed as "One of the Best and Most OriginalGguitarists in America" by Rolling Stone..."The Thinking Man's Guitar Hero" by The New Yorker Magazine..."Guitarist with a Global Beat" by The New York Times...and "Legendary Left-Field Guitarist" by The Guardian (UK).
He is also a Grammy-nominated songwriter--he co-wrote Jeff Buckley's anthems "Grace" and "Mojo Pin"--and a composer for film and tv.
He has released over 20 acclaimed albums to date in a variety of genres, and tours the world relentlessly, with appearances in over 40 countries--
including China, Russia, India, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, and Cuba.
Gary's recent album "The Ordeal of Civility" produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) features his NYC based supergroup Gods and Monsters, which includes members of the Modern Lovers and Television. The album received 4 Stars in MOJO.
He is also a published author, with his recent book "Touched By Grace--My Time with Jeff Buckley" out and doing well in Italy. It will be published this fall in English, coinciding with the imminent release of the new film "Greetings from Tim Buckley" starring Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl) as Jeff Buckley--and featuring Tony Award winning actor Frank Wood as Gary Lucas.
Tonight Gary returns to Wien in his favorite format, solo electric and acoustic, playing 2 eclectic 45 min. sets drawn on his vast repertoire. The emphasis tonight will be on songs as well as Gary's instrumental pyrotechnics.
Gary' special guest vocalist for the evening is rising young Austrian star Mika Vember, who will join Gary in a special tribute to his late partner and collaborator Jeff Buckley.
