Please join us for a special performance by Arthur’s Landing, a band formed to celebrate the musical genius of Arthur Russell. Members of the band are all friends of Russell’s who worked closely with him: Steven Hall, Peter Zummo, Ernie Brooks, Joyce Bowden, Mustafa Ahmed, John Scherman, Bill Ruyle and Elodie Lauten. They are working on mixing their first CD to be released summer 2009. Arthur’s Landing will be headlining the Arthur-O-Rama festival in NYC this October. Seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell is the focus of the feature length 2008 documentary Wild Combination from director Matt Wolf . A biography, called Hold Onto Your Dreams by Tim Lawrence, is due out this year.
