Greg Howard Greg Howard is one of the most renowned Stick players working these days. His three CD's (Stick Figures, Shapes, and Sol) have defined the genre of Stick Soloist. He will be playing solo on this occasion, in his first Philadelphia appearance since 1996.
Three Hour Tour features Stick player Ray Ashley. They are a funky, free form kind of rock band. Joe D'Andrea (drums) and Helene Zisook (electric violin), the other two members of the band, come from the folk band Broadside Electric. Ray and Joe are also known as veterans of the Asbury park music scene, and have a cassette out called Mostly Mono. Ray Ashley
Jim Speer Jim Speer (picutred here) and Paul Mimlitsch (below) play in Invasion of Time, a spacemusic band. Jim plays angular, dissonant pulsations in contrast to Paul's consonant, tribal loops. Invasion of Time recently made a stunning appearance at the Trenton Avante-Garde Festival. Jim is also known for his groundbreaking work as a folk musician Stick player. The two dueling Stick players will be accompanied by percussionist Jody Janetta.
