Beth Custer (solo) + David James’s GPS

March 1, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

| $12


Funky Border-Crossing Songs & Solos


David James (Afrofunk Experience, Beth Custer Ensemble) brings his newest project to the Poppy. With a diverse performing background, in bands ranging in from Ambient/World (Thessalonians) to hip-hop (The Coup, Spearhead) to Afrobeat (Sila), David’s music crosses all these stylistic borders (Senegalese-Irish groove, anyone?)


Featuring an all-star lineup of local luminaries, GPS (Good People, Son) marries the melodic to the grooving in exciting ways with its rhythm-trombone-clarinet-viola mix and deft improvising.




Beth Custer will begin the evening with a rare solo set of her pieces on piano, clarinets, and voice.
