Published DateLACONIA — The Mike Dillon Band will play at Pitman's Freight Room on Sunday, June 16 at 5 p.m.
Dillon is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980's as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization.
Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with; on tour, stage or in the studio, reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility.
The Mike Dillon Band, which delivers a cache of his new songs, infuses fresh life into his classics, and features Mike Dillon (vibraphone, percussion, lead vocals), Adam Gertner (drums), Cliff Hines (guitar, bass and keyboards) and Carly Meyers (trombone, vocals), whose raw talent, enthusiasm and infectious dance moves have created quite a stir among music goers in the past.
Admission is $15, doors open at 4:30 p.m. at the BYOB venue.
