Dr. Dan and the Looters live show includes space funk from 2000's "Dan on the Moon," heavy jazz from the new release "Firefly" w/ Stanton Moore, more vocally oriented funk rock from the self-titled album they are currently recording, and reworked renditions of 70s funk, alternative, and classic rock tunes. Think thick funk bass, bluesy guitar, machine-tight drum work, and other-wordly, 12 fingered alien keyboard sounds....and every third song could be a pop rock hit if they weren't so good at improvisation. Joe Layden- lead and rhythm guitars, vocals Eric Layden- 6 string bass, vocals, Ricky Fargo- drums, vocals Dr. Dan Matrazzo - keyboard, synthesizer, clavinet, theramin, vocals. Kitchener's Valet Band opens and two sets of music by Dr. Dan and the Looters, accompanied by professional dance performances and special guest appearances. The new CD "Firefly" with Stanton Moore will be played during intermissions and will be available for purchase at the merchandise stand.
