Fri-Sat Dec 30-31

Les Claypool’s Bastard Jazz at JaM Cellars

Comprised of Claypool and frequent collaborators Mike Dillon (percussion) and Skerik (sax), the NYE performances will also include special guest Vinnie Colaiuta, a GRAMMY winning drummer who has toured and recorded with many artists, including Frank Zappa, having played drums on the iconic ‘Joe’s Garage album.’ The shows are largely improvised – “I’m just going to get a bunch of guys together, and we’re going to walk on stage not knowing anything about what we’re going to do,” he explains. “No rehearsals, no nothing—and just start jamming.”

The NYE run follows a busy year for Claypool, who in addition to performing with Bastard Jazz, traveled the country with Primus for the band’s wildly popular ‘A Tribute To Kings’ Tour, paying tribute to Rush. Primus released its first new music in more than five years, the sprawling 3-song ‘Conspiranoid’ EP, which included the epic 11-minute opening track, “Conspiranoia.” This year also saw Les collaborate with Eugene Hütz of Gogol Bordello, Stewart Copeland, Sean Lennon and others on “Zelensky: The Man With the Iron Balls” to rally support for the Ukrainian people (watch his interview on CNN).
