We are still wating on reply's about venues in the BRC.... But im sure we will be playing somewhere this year.... Its been difficult finding stages geared towards live music, let me kno if anyone has any suggestions. We might not have our whole band out at the Burn this year, so we probably will be lookin for a bass player.... the music is not to complex... check out our myspace or sonicbids to listen to our tunes, let us know if your interested in learning our tunes... heres more info on the project....
Hello my name is Paul Evans from Upmost High Booking Agency ( i am running most of Lantz's online networking sites, myspace, sonicbids, etc....), i work directly with bands such as- Fishbone, Trulio Disgracias (members of Fishbone, P-Funk, and Red-Hot Chili Peppers), George Clinton and the P-Funk All-stars, and most recently Kim Manning and Lantz Lazwell.... i am contacting you about my newest act Kim manning( of George Clinton's P-Funk All-stars) and Lantz Lazwell (of Trulio Disgracias)... they are two accomplished solo artist's that have joined forces and continue to shock audiences across the country with their blend of Rock , Funk and Soul. They are currently on tour in the Mid-West opening for George Clinton's P-Funk All-stars ( Kim is also in the P-Funk All-stars!). I know its a bit close to your deadline on sealing your line-up, but we would love to squeeze into this years Festival.
Lantz has been attending Burning Man for 10 yrs... And has been appart of the Fixxxation Station theme camp for 4 yrs (they are responsible for the Dragonfly Artcar that has been at BM for 4 yrs)... He also has set up his own stage and put together a live music music showcase with bands from all over the world (2 yrs ago) within their theme camp.... Kim has not yet attended Burning Man, due to her constant touring of the World with George Clinton, but she has the spirit of your event running thru her veins.... Help us, by giving them a chance to participate in doing what they do best.... These 2 our some of the top up and comers in the festival circuit right now, but don't take my word for it..... Please check them out for yourself.... heres a link to a video of there performance in Tulsa, with George Clinton and The P-Funk All-Stars.... click and watch-
and here is the links to there myspace and website and EPK's!
Please let me know what you think, we are willing to work with you any we can in order to create a working relationship with your organization. We look forward to being appart of the family of great artist to grace your stage! I read your post about your stage, and it sounds like a perfect fit, we very excited about this years burn....
brief sound requirements- we only need 2 or 3 mics, direct box for keyboard, and amplifier for guitar( if necessary we can bring our own amp).... Also we can bring a drummer too.... not sure what u prefer... if the stage is big enough, we have a drum kit as well... But they are very used to performing as a duo.... we will work with your preference...
Also let me know if you have any suggestions of other stages or other Camps we can email about playing... Im trying to set up as many shows as i can for them while they are in Black Rock City.... much appreciated!
Love and Light,
