Thursday Apr 2  CANCELED Acoustic Asylum

Acoustic Asylum is what happens when you take some of LA’s best recording and touring musicians and turn them loose in an organic setting. No electronic tricks, no stylistic limits… just incredible music with a big dose of fun. From swamp funk, to jazz, to klezmer and tango, to quirky original and cover tunes, nothing is off limits. The band is led by award-winning composer and producer Dan Radlauer on accordion. Rounding out the all-star lineup are acclaimed guitarist Carl Verheyen; Mark Hollingsworth gives the band part of its unique sound playing clarinet and baritone sax; Banging the bass is one of the finest recording and touring musicians on the west coast — Dave Marotta; On drums, the highly versatile John Mader with a career spanning from Pat Benetar to the LA run of Hamilton; And on violin, the multifaceted Luis Alberto bringing an international flare to this super group.

Ethan Sherman moves between styles with ease. He is known for leading intrepid trios showcasing spare yet expansive original music as well as being an integral part of LA’s vanguard of young guitarists. He has sunk his teeth into acoustic music through collaborations with Thomas Cassell, Ben Garnett and the one-of-a-kind Harmolodic String Band — a quartet performing the music of Ornette Coleman on bluegrass instruments. He has worked with Aoife O’Donovan, Johanna Samuels, and Lydia Luce, as well as boundary-busting guitarists like Nels Cline and Robert Fripp, and pop starlet Ava Max. He holds a Studio Guitar degree from USC. He’ll be joined by Carey Frank on B3 and Matt Mayhall on drums. Multi-instrumentalist, Drew Taubenfeld, has played in the Emmy Awards house band and worked as musical director for Leon Bridges, Maggie Rogers, Selena Gomez, Meghan Trainor, Logic, and King Princess. He’ll be joined by pedal steel virtuoso, Rich Hinman.
