GRAPEJUICE PLUS Grape Juice Plus is a multi-media improvising outfit out of Chicago that has been freaking out/delighting audiences since 2014 and have shared stages with such luminaries as STICK MEN (featuring Pat Mastelotto & Tony Levin from King Crimson) and prog fusion legends, BRAND X. It began with Barry Bennett and Eric Klotz as a series of Monday morning sessions. Both musicians were looking be pushed to new areas of their improvisational sand boxes. At first glance, they seemed frome disparate places. Bennett, a fixture of Chicago’s free rock scene dating back to the classic Chicago band, MiLkBabY. Klotz, meanwhile, emerging from the world of jazz fusion. They discovered their chemistry quickly. When they decided to take their little fever dream public, they found the perfect collaborator in video artist, Tony Churchill, who is a multi jeff award winning projection designer whom Bennett met while sound designing a play. it turns out, a projectionist can improvise just as fluidly as musicians and can add a bit of wit and mystery to the proceedings that already included tribal groove, other worldly chants, electricity, improvisation, ritual, celebration, unknown lands, an ocean floating in the sky, a sprinkle of retro-future, and a dash of prog… ERF N LO Erfbeats and Lojazz come together for an audio journey of instrumental improvised composition. This two piece ensemble features Erfbeats on Drum and Percussion and Lojazz on Guitar.
