Tonight’s NHIC Atlas is Steve Asetta (Saxophones), Pete Brunelli ( Acoustic Bass Guitar), Bob Gorry (Guitar), Gabriel Kastelle (Viola), Adam Matlock (Clarinet/Accordion), Mike Paolucci(Drums/Percussion).
10pm Set features Electric NHIC, An eclectic group with a wide palette of classic and modern sounds and strategies. Plenty of open space for the unexpected to happen and plenty of propulsion to keep the blood flowing. Electric NHIC is Pete Brunelli (Electric Bass, electronics), Jeff Cedrone (Guitar), Bob Gorry (Guitar), Paul McGuire (Soprano & Alto Saxophone), Pete Riccio (Drums/Percussion).
NHIC is a far-reaching collective of creative musicians forming into a particular group to play particular music in a particular moment. NHIC holds monthly workshops, sponsors performances of various ad-hoc combinations of NHIC members and hosts visiting jazz and new music ensembles. A growing number of musicians and composers pass through the group bringing insights and enthusiasm from distant corners of the music world. Monthly open workshops welcome new members, new instruments and new ideas. The annual visit to Firehouse 12 showcases a core of the group, presents new works, and holds a few surprises.
