Some of you may have already heard the news, but I want to officially announce that I will be playing bass for Deltron 3030 on their upcoming tour. The tour starts Tuesday, October 8th in Boston and continues through October 26th. I am very excited and promise to bring the low end to the mix!
I met Dan “The Automator” Nakamura in the early 90’s when he asked me to record some bass for music he was working on. A number of years later, he asked me to join the touring band for Dr. Octagon. We never ended up touring but the month of rehearsals (including a couple of showcases) was one of the most creatively musical situations I’d ever been lucky enough to be a part of.
Fast forward to last month: Dan asked me to join his Deltron 3030 touring group and join them in the tour to support their just-released album, Event 2. This album is very unique, groundbreaking and as great as anything The Automator has ever done. Many of the shows will feature a 16-piece orchestra dubbed the “3030 Orchestra.”
