-9:30pm & 11:30pm- Derek Brown's FiftyFifty Tour Kickoff
Start Date/Time: Saturday, September 01, 2018 9:30 PM
Description:
    Saxophone innovator Derek Brown - known for his groundbreaking "BEATBoX SAX" style of playing - kicks off his FiftyFifty Tour at Andy's Jazz Club. These performances will serve as the first stop on his tour and will commemorate the release of his FiftyFifty album while also serving as a fond farewell to the city he's called home for the past four years and the fusion supergroup he's played with along the way, Low Spark. Join Derek and Low Spark and other special guests, including rapper Keith Harris, for a thrilling night of diverse, high energy music.

From his 30+ million views across social media to his interviews on international television and NPR’s Weekend Edition, Billboard-charting saxophonist/innovator Derek Brown and his one-of-a-kind solo “BEATBoX SAX” project has been exploding across the world music scene.

As described by jazz journalist/historian Scott Yanow, "Brown performs unaccompanied solos that occasionally make one recall Bobby McFerrin in his early prime and the great saxophonist Eddie Harris . . . utilizing slap-tonguing, circular breathing, a wide interest in musical styles and dazzling coordination to create rather unique music."

Derek's latest project is an epic undertaking: his FiftyFifty Tour has him performing at least one gig in each of the 50 states in nine months (Aug. '18-May '19). Traveling from state to state in an RV with his wife Rachel, they will be regularly vlogging and posting about music and life on the road. Follow them at www.FiftyFiftyTour.com.
