Keneally • Bendian • Lunn
“Keneally is the leading progressive rock genius of the post-‐Zappa era.” – All Music Guide
Long acclaimed as one of the world’s most creative and intense guitar and keyboard
players, Mike Keneally’s talents as a vocalist, songwriter, arranger, producer and multi-‐instrumentalist are nearly unequalled in rock music. He’s released 24 albums of his original music since 1992, and has built a body of work of remarkable inventiveness and originality.
Keneally played in Frank Zappa’s last touring band, performing as a vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist. He’s appeared on many Zappa albums, is currently a touring member of Dethklok (as a guitarist) and the Joe Satriani Band (as a guitarist/keyboardist), and has also recorded or performed with Robert Fripp, Flying Lotus, Wayne Kramer, Kevin Gilbert, Steve Vai, Chickenfoot, Henry Kaiser, Michael Manring, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Solomon Burke and many others.
Keneally’s latest releases include Wing Beat Fantastic: Songs Written by Mike Keneally & Andy Partridge, a collaboration with XTC’s Partridge that ranked highly on several critics’ “Best of 2012” lists; You Must Be This Tall, a mostly instrumental 44-‐minute complex rock thrill ride; and the deluxe reissue of 1997’s Sluggo!, now sporting an improved new stereo mix, a mind-‐boggling 5.1 mix and oodles of bonus audio and video artifacts.
Drummer/percussionist/composer Gregg Bendian is widely known for his innovative and wildly varied musical output. Active in the fields of jazz, rock and classical music, he has collaborated with some of the strongest personalities in contemporary music, including Pat Metheny, Todd Rundgren, Jan Hammer, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, John Zorn, Nels Cline, Derek Bailey and Keiji Haino.
Over the last 20 years, Gregg has led the repertory band, The Mahavishnu Project, in addition to his own ensembles, Interzone and Trio Pianissimo. Gregg is a consultant and producer of archival recordings for Sony/Legacy, including the upcoming “Live at The Bottom Line” series.
Doug Lunn is a multi-‐instrumentalist/composer who specializes on the five-‐string fretless bass. He has appeared on hundreds of recordings in a wide range of styles. Over a 30+ year career, he has performed and/or recorded with artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Andy Summers, Mark Isham, Sting, John Abercrombie, Don Cherry, Wayne Kramer, Reeves Gabrels, Eddie Jobson, Martha Davis/The Motels, and Art Lande among many others. Doug was a founding member of the band Fire Merchants with guitarist John Goodsall and drummer Chester Thompson. From 2005 to 2011 he performed nationally and internationally as a member of the band Out Trio with drummer Terry Bozzio and guitarist Alex Machacek.
In addition to extensive work in film and television, Doug spent a year in the house band of the Dennis Miller Late Night show. From 1996 to 2005 he was also the bassist/percussionist/music director for Peter Buffett’s multi-‐media show Spirit-‐ The 7th Fire that included a PBS special, live CDs and DVDs, and hundreds of shows on the road. His solo CD, Doug Lunn Project, featuring Vinnie Colaiuta, Peter Maunu and Mike Keneally, was released in 2011.
