Stoked and grateful for Grape Juice Plus to have the opportunity to open for STICK MEN on September first here in Chicago. The group features of my all time musical  heroes, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto of King Crimson!  Individually, they have participated in some of the greatest recordings in the history the genre and their influence on me is profound.  This would would be a special concert to witness even if GJP weren’t involved.  It’ll be extra special at this one so you can watch the guy from the opening band turn into a 12 year old before your eyes…

  3. I guess I’ve never listened to your stuff before, Barry. I’ll start by saying that it’s going to take some getting used to, it’s an unexpected sound and feel. My initial impression is that it’s sort of a Jazz/Pink Floyd mix/mash. Then, the more I heard I started thinking more Dream Theater/King Crimson. But I don’t think it’s very easy to say it’s exactly any of those.
    Keep up the original work.
