To kick-off AMC restarting 2nd Friday Night dances, Micah Swabb (dj Mikaya) will be mixing a live set with two live musicians: Max Ribner on the Flugelhorn, trumpet and keys, with local drummer Steven Truluck on the djembe. This 90 minute set will be high energy at the peak with an all live acoustic section. The overall structure of the dance will follow the classic “wave” progression. This set will be light on lyrics.
Max Ribner Bio
What are the common threads that bridge jazz, soul, and classical music with spiritual connection and community service? This is the question that drives international touring artist Max Ribner. The sound that answers is rich, reverent, and intimate, connecting us through the lineage of music, to the stories of our ancestors. In the past, Max’s unique and fusion-inspired approach to Flugelhorn and trumpet has led him to perform with artists such as Esperanza Spalding, Nahko And Medicine For The People, Trevor Hall, The Polish Ambassador, Liv Warfield and many more.
