As You Wish: New Time for THE GRAYS with Guest Performer: Bob Nasta

As requested by fans, the start time of the Hump Night series by The Grays is moved to 7:30 pm. They'll perform two sets of high energy, jammin' music until 9:30pm.
"The Grays will be back for our third appearance at our favorite new hangout at The Buttonwood Tree, Middletown's jazz and community oasis. We've been utterly seduced by the fantastic energy of the past two audiences - such beautiful, heartful people, many great musician friends coming out, and the great energy of Middletown's diverse community." Justin Good

This show will feature special guest artist Bob Nasta. Bob Nasta is gifted multi-instrumentalist and ethnomusicologist, music professor at MxCC and musical director of Artists for World Peace. Check him out 

As we continue to hold sacred acoustic space at The Buttonwood, we invite to you come join us, to listen deeply, interact with us emotionally and rhythmically, to channel together the voices of our hidden selves.

"Each time the human being falls asleep and loses consciousness, his astral body emerges from his physical body. In this state man is certainly unconscious but living in the spiritual world. The spiritual sounds make an impression on his soul. The human being awakens each morning from a world of the music of the spheres, and from this region of harmony he re-enters the physical world. If it is true that man's soul experiences Devachan* between two incarnations on earth, then we may also say that during the night the soul feasts and lives in flowing tone, as the element from which it is actually woven and which is the soul's true home."
Rudolf Steiner

The Grays is an original jazz-funk music project, which mixes electrified gypsy jazz with odd-time tribal funk beats. The group features Justin Vood Good on guitar, Hans Lohse on percussion, accordion and vocals, Tracey Kroll on drums and electronica, Pat Burro on acoustic and electric bass, and Steve Fava on ambiance sculpting and sound production. Grays offers deep grooves and dynamic improvisation for listening as well as dancing, and encourages audience participation.

*Devachan is regarded as the place where most souls go after death where desires are gratified, corresponding to the Christian belief in Heaven. However, Devachan is a temporary, intermediate state of being before the soul's eventual rebirth into the physical world.
