Event Details


Colorado Twang meets the Funk in a new take on good old Grateful Dead Songs. Imagine your favorite Dead tunes re-interpreted thru the lens of a mash-up of JJ Cale, Parliament Funkadelic and Merle Haggard. Twang Is Dead features the Arthur Lee Land TRIO and special guests highlighting Arthur’s arrangements of classic Dead songs and the Twang of his signature psychedelic, hand painted 1955 B-Bender Fender Telecaster guitar over old school Americana Country, Rhythm & Blues and Funk grooves while staying true to the improvisational nature of the music and the spirit of adventure that the Dead are known for. 
The Arthur Lee Land TRIO - Where Colorado Twang Meets the Funk, invokes a joyful and humorous dialogue of musical improvisation between Arthur, Will Trask (drums) and Zach Jackson (bass). The diverse musical influences are evident in the band’s stimulating conversations which can lead the audience into magical realms of transcendence through driving electrified and acoustic arrangements of Arthur Lee Land original songs co-written with his non-performing lyricist Carol Lee. Twang is Dead is an extension of the TRIO highlighting new arrangements of good ol’ Grateful Dead songs rearranged by Arthur providing exciting fresh energy to a much loved and overplayed song book featuring special guests from the jam band world’s favorite players.
Beginning in 2000, Arthur has pioneered the technology of looping multiple instruments live. He is unique in his ability to perform a complete show playing full song-form loops. His performances featuring The Art of Live-Looping affords his audience the opportunity to see a behind-the-scenes-overview of how music gets recorded in the studio, layer by layer. The listener actually hears music differently by having the ability to zoom in and out of the sonic picture similar to looking at the pointillist artwork of George Seurat: zooming in to hear/see the individual parts/dots and then zooming out to hear/see the whole soundscape/painting.
