On Thursday, October 4, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and KLCC proudly welcomes Terry Bozzio’s “Reality Tour” 2018 to the WOW Hall.
Drum legend Terry Bozzio performed a solo drum concert at the WOW Hall on October 20, 2016. This year he’s back with Reality (available at www.terrybozzio.com). On Reality, Terry recorded real drums alone in studio with sections, solos, breaks and structures made up on the spot, then recorded and overdubbed all the rest of the music by himself. Bozzio is known for his work with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Korn, UK, Missing Persons, Mick Jagger, Robbie Robertson, Alan Holdsworth, Tony Levin, Steve Vai, Quincy Jones, Ken Scott, Metropole Orkest – as well as film score composers Basil Poledouris, Mark Isham and Patrick O’Hearn. He is a Grammy winner, RockWalk honoree, Modern Drummer Magazine‘s Hall of Fame Award, and is in Rolling Stone’s Top 5 Drummers of All Time! Unless you have seen Terry, you have no idea what you are in for. Bozzio is an enigmatic, evocative and engaging musician whose instrument just happens to be drums. Terry Bozzio is able to accompany himself with bass note patterns and, at the same time, melodically solo with highly developed coordination skills to express a “complete musical statement” on the drum set alone. Drawing from jazz, classical and ethnic percussion styles from around the world, Terry Bozzio is “a storyteller” able to weave a hypnotic spell over audiences and enthrall them with an eclectic experience filled with emotion, contrast, variety, intimacy, excitement and passion. This is a unique, intense, dynamic, spiritualistic, melodic, orchestral, atmospheric and musical performance on the largest tuned drum and percussion set in the world! Please note that this is not a bombastic 2-hour drum solo. This is MUSIC on drums. There is space, classical forms and structures, ambient electronic loops, and atmospheric percussion effects, as well as some exciting and fiery drumming that brings audiences to their feet! Terry has spent the last 30 years performing solo drum music for sold out audiences all around the world.
