Jazz/rock/funk group Garage A Trois (pictured) is returning to St. Louis for a performance at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, September 30 at 2720 Cherokee.
The group was last seen in St. Louis in September 2010 at the Old Rock House. Garage A Trois was formed in 1999 by drummer Stanton Moore, single-named saxophonist Skerik (nee Eric Walton) and guitarist Charlie Hunter. The band's current lineup includes Moore, Skerik, Mike Dillon on vibes and Marco Benevento on keyboards.
For this visit, they have a brand new album, titled Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil, which was recorded at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, LA with the assistance of engineer/producer Randall Dunn and released in April in CD, vinyl LP and MP3 formats.
You can listen to some music samples from Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil on Garage A Trois' MySpace page. (Also, you can see some older video of Garage A Trois in performance in this StLJN Saturday Video Showcase post from last August.)
Although the show is listed on 2720 Cherokee's website, there's no price information or on-sale date yet. As soon as that information is released, we'll add it here.
