Orcas Center is thrilled to welcome Stick Men on Saturday, Feb. 4 on the Center Stage.
Stick Men is a progressive rock band created by musicians Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, (the powerhouse bass and drums of the group King Crimson for more than two decades), and Markus Reuter — a renowned composer and guitarist who designed and plays his own unique touch style guitar.
Levin plays the Chapman Stick, from which the band takes its name. A member of the guitar family, the Chapman Stick functions at times like two instruments with the ability to play bass lines, melody lines, chords, or textures simultaneously. Reuter plays his 8-string touch guitar – again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And Mastelotto’s drumming encompasses not just the acoustic kit, but a unique electronic setup too, allowing him to add loops, samples, percussion, and more. The result: audiences are fascinated by watching just three musicians onstage perform their unique compositions as well as wild improvisations and cover songs.
