Jane LeCroy & Tom Abbs are TRANSMITTING – Jane lays down a Salvador Dali torch song lit by the wizardry of Tom Abbs on a bevy of instruments that will leave you illuminated and aware. Abbs’ keen sense of improvisation propels LeCroy through vast landscapes of words, songs and sound.
Jane LeCroy – words, lyrics, voice.
Tom Abbs – upright bass, didjeridoo, occasional tuba,
violin and firecrackers.
As a poet, Raj, is an unsolved algorithm challenging the audience before him. Puerto Rican and Colombian by way of a Saudi Arabian blood line makes “Geko Jones” (pronounced geh•co ho•nes) a chameleon of style. He delivers timeless imagery with subtlety and tumultuous rhyme schemes with ease. A regular at the Acentos showcase since it’s inception, Raj brings the unexpected to the stage, no disclaimers.
