JOHN BUTCHER/GINO ROBAIR
Californian percussionist Gino Robair first played with Butcher in a
1997 recording session at Myles Boisen’s Oakland studio. Music from that
day have been released on two Meniscus CDs – Music on Seven Occasions &
Buddy Systems.
The next year they formed a trio with bassist Matthew Sperry (whom
Butcher had met at the 1995 Company concerts in Vancouver).
The trio recorded 12 Milagritos, and played the Vancouver Jazz Festival
in 2001.
It was a great shock when Matthew was killed by a car whilst cycling in
June 2003.
A site is dedicated to his memory.
Continuing as a duo, Robair and Butcher have toured extensively
releasing three duo CDs.
Various collaborations have proved valuable, including trios with koto
player Miya Masaoka, guitarist John Shiurba, trumpeter Liz Albee,
guitarist Derek Bailey, synthist Thomas Lehn and audio-visual artist
Bill Hsu.
Gino is also a vital part of the 7-piece John Butcher Group.

PLUS INSTRUMENTS + (DICK EL DEMASIADO)
Dick Verdult is a middle-aged Dutch man who also happens to be the
godfather of the experimental cumbia scene in Argentina. Better known as
Dick El Demasiado, the founder of the legendary Festicumex festival
recently returned to Buenos Aires to finish up a new album and play a
series of live shows. Just a few days after his arrival, he sat down for
an interview and asado at WhatsUp Buenos Aires headquarters to talk
about his life, his music and exactly how he started messing around with
all this stuff in the first place.
Until last year Truus was just a short footnote in the Dutch music
history. However in 2012 some events took place around the Dutch
“Ultra” music movement. Eindhoven native, Truus (ex Nasmak), was an
important component of this genre. She performed a series of concerts
in 2012, which was evident that Plus Instruments did not only survive
the sands of time, but in fact appealed to an entire younger more
current public.

Thanks for reading.

Please contact me if you want to set up a gig for one of these
musicians.

All the best.

Alain
