Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses ... and one little bumble bee with a big problem -- what else could they possibly have packed into this explosive, sexually charged, '70s-inspired psychedelic show? Dancers, singers and live musicians? Oh, don't worry -- they've got plenty of those, as well. The first staging of this exotic and exciting show since 2011, the Triple Door will soon find itself filled with a colorful kaleidoscope of choreographed dances, sexy burlesque performances and impressive live music featuring what The Examiner described as "powerful, mind-blowing vocals ... the band alone is worth the price of admission." So come strap yourself in for a 90-minute extravaganza of non-stop, Broadway-style excess at House of Thee Unholy. Learn More
The quartet, rounded out by pianist Holly Holverson, bassist Dwight Thompson and drummer Kevin Smith, formed in 2001 when Gibson returned from a touring stint with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. "It was a great experience for me," says Gibson, who was only 21 at the time. "The orchestra played a huge role in my development as a player. There are very few bands that swing that hard anymore."
Like much of the jazz that followed in the wake of the bebop revolution, the Clark Gibson Quartet is a tight, almost telepathic unit that modulates from themes and standards to passages of solo improvisation. The faint Latin tinge of the post-bop era is also evident in its sound, but the emphasis is on the sultry, unadulterated swing of vintage pop and blues.
