Opus Improvised Series, Hi-Lo Lounge, New Orleans


  • Hi-Lo Lounge 2239 Saint Claude Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70117 United States (map)

Rob Mazurek, Mars Williams, Simon Berz, Nick Benoit

This is the debut show of Instant Opus at it's new location at the Hi Ho. How amazing does this lineup look? WOW!! Any one of these players in the lineup would be a show I would be super excited about, but all of them together could possibly be the greatest musical experience I will ever get to have in my lifetime. I am in improvised music heaven. Mars Williams made his name with the Psychedelic Furs but is more respected in the experimental music community with his high energy Peter Brotzman style saxophone improvisations. Rob Mazurek is one of the most celebrated trumpet players alive, playing with such notable acts a Black Cube SP, Sao Paulo Underground, and Exploding Star Orchestra. Simon Berz is Europes most sought after experimental percussionist and creator of the Liquid Land Nola improvisation documentary. Rounding out the group is the only local Nick Benoit. You might know him from such acts as Doombalaya or Herbsaints, but he is a staple in the improvised experimental scene. This is a super spectular event that will be talked about for years to come. Don't miss out on this one.Write here...
