SF JAZZ Hotplate - Adam Theis & Subharmonic play Charles Mingus "Ah Um"

Adam Theis & Subharmonic Plays Charles Mingus' 'Ah-Um'

SFJAZZ Hotplate is a monthly concert series at the Joe Henderson Lab featuring Bay Area’s most gifted musicians re-imagining a famous recording of a jazz legend. The 2nd Thursday of every month, Hotplate aims to show another side of SFJAZZ, an informal setting where you can drop in for a drink and hear some of the best jazz the local scene has to offer. Make sure to show up early for each set as DJ Pat Les Stache spins some of the legend's best-known tracks before the live music begins. This is a seriously fun jazz hang and the joint is always packed!

This performance will consist of 2 separate sets: 8PM & 9:30PM, so you must buy a ticket for which sets you want to attend.  I will only be attending the 8pm set.

As of March 16th, the 8pm set is SOLD OUT.  Please let me know if you purchased a ticket and are attending.

• 7pm we will meet in the lobby to socialize and grab a drink.  You can get drinks at the bar in South and bring them into the lobby & Joe Henderson Lab - just have them put in plastic cup.  We will move to Joe Henderson Lab to grab seats when they open the doors. The Joe Henderson Lab is a small venue with chairs set up in rows.

• 8pm show starts

General Admission Ticket Prices:

Mingus Ah Um is a studio album by American jazz musician Charles Mingus, released in 1959 by Columbia Records. It was his first album recorded for Columbia. The cover features a painting by S. Neil Fujita. Wikipedia


Adam Theis & Subharmonichttp://www.jazzmafia.com/family/subharmonic/

Subharmonic is the sound of the Left Coast’s most in demand horn section, unleashed by some of today’s heaviest rhythmic grooves. By using any means necessary, the 5 multi-instrumentlists of Adam’s Subharmonic create the sound of everything from a futuristic Mega -Orchestra to 1920s Cotton Club Dubstep by sampling, looping, layering and manipulating an array of brass instruments. Trombone, Trumpet, Sax, Clarinet and Tuba all lock in with remixed electro/acoustic rhythms from Max Roach and Charles Mingus to Brass/Jazz remakes of Joni Mitchell, Radiohead, J Dilla or Skrillex. Modern-drumming mastermind Brandon Werlin, appears as half man/half machine, attacking the titanic rhythms on both the acoustic drumkit as well as a battery of drum samplers, touch screens and other equipment that is so new there aren’t even names for it yet. In only 6 months since their first show, the group has performed at San Jose Jazz Festival, The Mezzanine SF, Guitarfish Festival and 2 shows at the legendary Fillmore in SF.

    Thanks for the kind words, glad so many of you came to my Hotplate show last Thurs! We put a lot of hard work into that show and were really happy with it. it was a brand new ensemble of musicians I've met relatively recently and thought would work well together for this one-time thing - Well, a new band was born! We're going to do more shows with this project and are starting a studio album of our re-envisioned Mingus Ah Um material! Anyway, stay in touch! Looking forward meeting and connecting with y'all!

      Mitch, I have changed your RSVP to no since you don't have a ticket. I need to see who I'm actually looking for tonight.

      OK, thanks... Just off the phone with the membership office @ SFJ and no ticket turn-ins to be had... Bummer! I'm pretty flexible and could scoot over to the city from Mill Valley (literally, on my scooter, thus avoiding traffic snarls), on a moments notice, should you become aware of a ticket opportunity... I'm @[masked]-5029. I hope to luck out and see you there, but in any case, enjoy the show!
