Chick Corea Akoustic Band
Monday, August 27, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$49 – $89
The Chick Corea Akoustic Band, the pioneering acoustic trio featuring legendary drummer Dave Weckl and master bassist John Patitucci, will make an appearance in Buffalo at the UB Centr for the Arts as part of their 2018 touring season.
Corea, a 22-time Grammy winner and NEA Jazz Master, formed the band with Weckl and Patitucci 30 years ago, and they’ve been redefining the music scene together ever since, as a trio and as the rhythmic backbone of Corea’s Elektric Band. And yet an appearance from the crowd-favorite Akoustic Band is still a rare experience for jazz fans. The trio’s 2018 tour will be its first in more than 20 years.
“Dave, John and myself are all excited about playing as a trio again! The Akoustic Band is back! There’s so much to explore – past, present and future.” said Corea.
The Chick Corea Akoustic Band reunites Chick with longtime brothers-in-music John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, bringing the whipshot runs and lyrical flights that they pioneered in Chick’s Elektric Band back to a classic acoustic piano trio. Expect Chick’s signature boundless energy on piano and brilliant songwriting, John’s unparalleled mastery on the bass, and Dave’s unmistakable brilliance on drums. Don’t miss the Akoustic Band’s first tour in more than 20 years!
