Orkestar MEZE @ The Foundation Room 2/2/13

It's peasant party-time! Orkestar MEZE's own beloved leader Milen is celebrating his birthday in the best possible way - in a slick Sunset Blvd. club, with tons of friends, and a full injection of PEASANT FUNK! Take part in the merriment on Saturday, February 2nd at 9pm as we play the Foundation Room in the historic House of Blues Sunset. It should be a packed house with plenty of booty-shaking and boozing to go around...

Show the love of commitment! Buy your tickets pre-sale and save 5 bucks off the door price, plus the first 40 pre-sale peasants get a sticker (check it out below, the best sticker ever made). Let's make this a big party!

Best of the Blue Whale: 2012

It is my honor to announce the release of a new album, Best of the Blue Whale: 2012. Compiled by videographer and sound engineer Alex Chaloff as a surprise gift to the Blue Whale club's owner Joon Lee, this digital-only release features twelve choice cuts from performances at the Blue Whale that Alex recorded audio and video for. The album includes my composition "The People Who Raised Us" from the Michael Mull Octet's debut performance, and we couldn't ask to be in better company - other tracks include the likes of Anthony Wilson, Ben Wendel, Larry Koonse, Josh Nelson, Larry Goldings, John Daversa and more.

The reason this is a "gift" to Joon Lee is that 100% of the proceeds of the album sales will go toward upgrading the sound and lighting systems at the Blue Whale, meaning a greater listening experience for the music and a greater viewing experience of the ever-changing art installations! All the artist represented on this album donated their tracks so that we all can see, hear, and feel the benefits at the bastion of great music that the Blue Whale has become.
