The upcoming Black Tie-Dye Ball on September 25, featuring Dark Star Orchestra at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, is the latest in a series of collaborations with gifted performers who care about the Rex Foundation. It offersÂ Rex supporters the opportunity to enjoy a unique musical experience, while also celebrating the Portland areaâ€™s talent, enterprise and community spirit. Proceeds help support local area non-profit programs.
We’re pleased to announce that the pre-concert party and reception will feature the music of local musicians Scott Law and Asher Fulero. Our thanks to Scott and Asher for making the evening extra special and for furthering the work of the Rex Foundation.
About the artists:
Scott Law embodies the ideal of the American Guitar Master. A brilliant and versatile instrumentalist, Law has connected onstage with many contemporary masters of American music, among them Phil Lesh & Friends, Darol Anger, Melvin Seals, String Cheese Incident, Tony Furtado and many others. Scottâ€™s alternately chiming and grinding melodic concept bears favorable comparison with everyone from the early Telecaster masters to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Jerry Garcia, creating a style that bears his unique stamp yet freely ranges over the entire history of rock, jazz and bluegrass guitar. Scott is an evocative singer touched by the blues, who delivers timeless original music and connects audiences to his songs with ease.
Asher Fulero is a top-tier pianist/keyboardist and modern-edged producer who defies categorization.Â Involved in a wide breadth of musical projects, he continually pushes his own boundaries both technically and stylistically.Â Over the years he has performed in over 40 different live bands and recorded on over 50 studio albums, many of them engineered, produced, and/or mixed by Asher himself.Â Recently his long-standing electro-dance duo Surrounded By Ninjas released their third studio album on Artdamaged Records, and his solo electronica project, Halo Refuser (an anagram of his name), also just released a hot new album for 100% free download.
