Gigs and what not

It's been really dark and rainy the last week here in Tokyo. I'm happy the weather has cleared up. I've got a lot of exciting things coming up this month and next. Tonight I will be sharing the stage with the great jazz drummer Fukushi Tainaka. We will be playing at No Bird in Ginza with vocalist Eiko Solaris. I will join Fukushi again on Sunday 9/13 with alto saxophonist Fumio Hayashi at Shine in Yono Saitama. On Monday the 14th I join Vocalist Yuzuri at Mugen in Ginza. Then on 9/20 Sunday I will be leading my own group playing original music at Absolute Blue in Ikebukuro. We start at 7:30. I will be hitting the stage with my good friend vocalist Kenneth Andrew at Absolute Blue on September 30th. We will be performing some of my originals and arrangements as well as some rare covers by King Crimson and Gino Vannelli.

In October I'm proud to be a part of the Tokyo Groove Alliance CD release concert. We will be playing at my favorite club Absolute Blue on October 2nd. Show starts at 7:30. TGA has been a band with the same members for about ten years now. There is a certain kind of magic in this group that is rare. I'm lucky to be a part of it. 

Also I've been doing a bit of writing for big band and will be performing some of that music on October 4th in Tsukuba with the Sound Gazette big band. Plus look for more music from my progressive metal outfit Ebonvoid.

Get out and support live music folks!

The Jeff Curry Band live at Absolute Blue

On May 9th my band will hit the stage at Absolute Blue playing my original music. This is the first time using baritone sax in my band and it really suits the music. Also having the sax opens up the guitar and keys to create more textures. We'll play a lot of new material as well as some stuff from my former group The Outer Rim. Also I'm really excited to play at Absolute Blue because its a good sounding room and looks pretty classy. I hope you can come out for a night of fun and music!

That is right boys and girls, Ebonvoid's first EP is in the can! The official release will be in February but you can review and purchase the music online now on bandcamp. Also you can check out some of our music and videos on reverbnation. It has been a great ride and we are just at the beginning. We got a lot more music coming up.

Our CD release party will take place on February 20th at Club Edge in Roppongi. We got two other killer bands playing before us. The high energy thrashers Tristaint will open the show followed by the very entertaining Nerd Rock. Ebonvoid will play all the songs from the first EP plus some new songs. For more info please check our facebook page.

As I type this I am listening to the Ebonvoid mixes before the mastering process begins and I'm really liking what I'm hearing. After three years working on this project I can say that this is shaping up way beyond my expectations. Everybody working on this has upped their game over the years and its really encouraging to see! It is very humbling to have literally a team of people working on my music and sharing a vision. I would like to thank KRH studios, Kenneth Andrew, Zak Bond, Kazutomo Ikeda, and Michale de la Riva for the all the hard work they do. They have put in some serious hours on this project! There are others to thank as well in due time. I have had so many new experiences since we began. I even got to sing and shout on this recording! Now I have to teach myself how to sing and play at the same time. Kind of like learning to walk I guess....

We will release a single in the upcoming months as we finish up recording the vocals and guitars for the remaining songs. It will feature four songs. "Towers of the Damned", "Deceit Cycle", "Chains", and "Until My Shadow Disappears". I have some ideas about the art work and layout brewing in my skull. More on that later.

Here is the latest studio update. Enjoy!

There is something happening here!

Thanks to all of those who participated in the benefit for Neil concert. It was a huge success. I think we all got a lot more out of it than just raising money for one person. The feedback has been so positive. It is the desire of many of the folks that were there to get the Tokyo music community together more often whether it be for charity or doing showcases of our original material or both. We are in talks now and trying to set up something in April or May. More on that later!

In other news...
My group will be playing in Toranomon at Le Petit Tonneau this Saturday from 7pm. We will be doing mostly original material. The group features Daisuke Kuroda on guitar, 松崎陽平 on keys, and Mike Marrington, on drums. Le Petit Tonneau serves up authentic French food and wines. Hope to see you there! No cover!
