ROY AYERS RETURNS TO MELBOURNE IN 2017

Vibraphonist and vocalist Roy Ayers is known as the Godfather of Neo-Soul and is among the most respected jazz and R&B artists on the scene today.

Ayers was born in Los Angeles, California on September 10, 1940. Music has always been in his genes; his mother Ruby, was a schoolteacher and local piano instructor and his father, Roy Sr. was a sometimes-parking attendant and trombonist. As it often happens in a household filled with love and appreciation for music, Roy began to demonstrate his musical aptitude by the tender age of five. By then he was playing boogie tunes on the piano. He eventually turned his attention to the guitar and other instruments, including the trumpet, and drums before embracing instrument of choice, the vibraphone.

In the 1960’s, Roy was an award-winning jazz vibraphonist but soon transferred into a popular R&B band leader in the 1970’s and 80’s. Today, the dynamic music man is an iconic figure still in great demand. His career has been diverse and impressive, he created an influential soundtrack for the 1973 Blaxploitation film Coffy, performed on Whitney Houston’s hit song ‘Love Will Save the Day’ in 1988 and is one of the most sampled artists in R&B and Hip Hop, featuring on hits by Common, Mary J. Blige, Dr Dre and DÁngelo to name a few.

Don’t miss this true giant of Acid Jazz as he visits Melbourne with a sideshow at The Croxton before Bluesfest in Byron Bay this April!

“The Unseen” A Detroit Beat Tape – Film Screening

The Unseen-A3-FA -

Following on from our screening of ”All Ears” we are screening the brand new documentary by the same film maker Gus Sutherland, “The Unseen” A Detroit Beat Tape!

Info

The Unseen explores the soul and roots of Detroit Hip Hop Production, mirroring the sketchpad style format of a beat tape. Loosely acting as a prequel to the L.A. based “All Ears” documentary,

The Unseen provides rare insights into a scene that has remained distant from the public eye while giving birth to some of the culture’s richest and most influential sounds. The film glimpses the hidden and elusive characteristics inherent in a city often depicted in a one dimensional light.

-Screening 1 will commence at 6:30 Monday 12th December  book here                                                               -Screening 2 will commence at 6:30 Tuesday 13th December  book here

Both screenings will be in ”The Beats Below” our new space connected to Wax Museum
