Jazz/rock/funk group Garage A Trois
(pictured) is returning to St. Louis for a performance at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, September 30 at 2720 Cherokee
The group was last seen in St. Louis in September 2010 at the Old Rock House. Garage A Trois was formed in 1999 by drummer Stanton Moore
, single-named saxophonist Skerik
(nee Eric Walton) and guitarist Charlie Hunter
. The band's current lineup includes Moore, Skerik, Mike Dillon
on vibes and Marco Benevento
For this visit, they have a brand new album, titled Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil, which was recorded at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, LA with the assistance of engineer/producer Randall Dunn
and released in April in CD, vinyl LP and MP3 formats.
You can listen to some music samples from Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil on Garage A Trois' MySpace page
. (Also, you can see some older video of Garage A Trois in performance in this StLJN Saturday Video Showcase post
from last August.)
Although the show is listed on 2720 Cherokee's website
, there's no price information or on-sale date yet. As soon as that information is released, we'll add it here.
