Band/artist history
Mike clRK ERIC UDELL AND PHELPS ARE ALL DENTONITES........................ mike clark...google.(mikeclarkmusic.com)..the head hunter from herbie hancock, and leader of several extrodinary albums with such musicians as kenny garrett...I believe Mike was playing with albert collins at the age of 14.(a legend dave phelps...guitarists to so many including nuff brothers.Dave is considered by many fellow n.y.c. musicians to be one of the most extrodinary guitarist there is period.As far as I am concerned he is. eric udell currently with blues brothers formerely with joe beck, mike stern and just back in town from european tour where blues brothers did festival with PARLIMEnt P FUNK mike simm great engineer amazing sAX played with mingus big band,and was leader of a currently outlawed european heavy metal explosion band(i believed he is banned from Luxemburg and Sweeden) and just the baddest sax player around jerry z b3 currently with MIKE Clark organ trio swami....ex phone psychic...questionable history
Have you performed in front of an audience?
NYC ,n.j. special moments?get on a stage with these musicians and they are all special.there was one moment though,having to do with,reverb ,feedback,and an exotic dancer... currently band in transition no gigs.swami is chanting for ... self and members...and return of harmony...nomyouhorengeykeyyo
Your musical influences
elvin jones,mike clark,dave phelps,mike sim,procol harum,blind faith,menudo,HENDRIx,coltraine, shakti,alan holsworth ,mike stern,pfunk,monk ,weather report,howlin Wolf ,willie dixon,curtis mayfield. miles davis, zappa and beefheart and a mahavishnu vibe are the continuum we(I) are (am)trying to propegate pee wee herman ,dave chapelle, rodney dangerfield, and p funk and tom waits .al jolson.rhasand roland kirk,the bird.I guess on some level the doors,as i have had some songs compared to that.For me if I could be part of something that produced a moment like McLaughlin had during"unkown discident" Jaco Pastorius in "black bird" or what john lennon did in "imagine",or eddy vedder did with "i wish" or zappa did on "hot rats" I would be satisfied,or even a Cab Calloway moment.There was a moment on "televisions" where i thought everyone was killin' and I had come close to that.And that at that moment the band I had behind me was just perhaps the "shittiest band in n.y.c.,maybe even the world.And if i just read a phone book they would make it swing.
What equipment do you use?
