Dave Weckl / Tom Kennedy Band—“Fusion Night”

Atlantis Basel
Tuesday, 26 April

Compositional sophistication, technical brilliance, tonal opulence, and virtuosity in improvisation reached new, dizzying heights in the Dave Weckl Band. Weckl, revered as the guru of fusion drumming by drummers from all over the world since playing in Chick Corea's “Electric Band,” builds on the legendary early phase of the Electric Band, and his drumming sets standards more than ever.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, the future innovator became interested in playing the drums at age 8. He worked in the Michel Camilo Band, with which he recorded five albums. Before he knew it, he was drumming for singers Simon and Garfunkel's 1983 reunion tour. As a result, Weckl grooved as a recording artist for artists ranging from Diana Ross, Robert Plant, Lee Ritenour, and Chick Corea to Mike Stern, George Benson, and many others. Weckl brings his long-standing partners—Tom Kennedy (bass), Bob Franceschini (saxes), and Stu Mindeman (keys)—with him to Basel for an exceptional band!
Tickets are CHF 46.30-76.90.
