The Black Jacket Symphony “Appetite For Destruction”

The Black Jacket Symphony “Appetite For Destruction”

The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked–the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album.

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features the album being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of the album artist’s “greatest hits,” opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.

WEEN
SweetWater Stage / Sunday, April 23 / 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
“Push th’ Little Daisies” became Ween’s biggest hit, but to their cult-like fanbase, it pales in comparison to their catalog. This experimental rock band draws their inspiration from funk, soul, gospel, country, and celtic reggae, among others. The world of music has been Ween’s oyster, and they’ve explored the depths of all genres through their albums. Impossible to adequately describe, Ween is a world apart from most bands you’ve heard. There is no single word that could adequately describe them, but hundreds that might pay tribute. “Adventurous” and “experimental” are two. This group, who’s been entertaining…
