This is my Los Angeles debut of my band Rene Collins and The Great Movement. We are performing at the Legendary Talking Stick in Venice. The Talking Stick is the perfect venue for me and my work.
Those of you who have been following me know my music is a hybrid of folk, reggae, rock, soul, hip hop with a spiritual message of universal love. I have put together a wonderful collection of kick ass musicians. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
The night will be very exciting. The Conlons will be performing and well as Taryn Lounsbury with Jenny Swope.
It will be a great night!
The event is free but a donation of $5-$10 dollars gets you an Aphromystic Cd!
So come on down and catch The Movement....this is just the beginning!
Who Will Be Playing with me?
Well...Paul Allen for starters.
Modern Drummer magazine calls Paul "one of the most visible contemporary drummers on the scene".
He just got off tour with Kelly Clarkson he played with American Idol runner-up Justin Guarin and he played with the legendary Lenny Castro. He just finished a video called "Hearts on Fire". With his busy schedule juggling projects from acting on film to producing his own band Hesby fourth street, I am so honored to include me in his up and coming projects!
My friend Alan Grubner will be playing violin/fiddle as well. He is the original player on the Aphromystic Cd!!!! Alan has played with Olivia Newton John,Henry Threadgill,Christian Howes The Dixie Bee-Liners. His compositions are featured in the groundbreaking film, Beasts of the Southern Wild, which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival and the Caméra d’Or at Cannes Film Festival He is one of the hottest violin players in the country!! No doubt!!
David Neal will be on guitar. I was first entranced by his playing while watching him in the Agape House band! His technique and feel is transcendent. I love this guy!! I knew right away I wanted to play with him. He has played with such greats as Chaka Khan, Nikki Harris, Erik Peterson just to mention a few. But you can find him every Sunday helping Ricky BB calling down the spirit at Agape.
The Bass will be played by the one, the only Ron McDonald. A virtuoso, and a amazing singer at that, he has been played with Chaka Khan, Toni Braxton, Patti Austin and the one and only Funk Brothers! He is one of the most versatile musicians I ever met! Along with David Neal you can also see him backing Rick BB at Agape! It will be an amazing night!
Stay tuned for more!
