Dave EggarDave Eggar was a musical prodigy, beginning to play the cello and piano at age three and performing as a singer and actor on Broadway and at the Metropolitan Opera at age seven. He trained as a classical cellist at the Juilliard School, and later graduated from Harvard University and the Juilliard School’s Doctoral Program. He debuted in Carnegie Hallat 15 as the youngest winner in the history of the Artists International competition. He has appeared throughout the world as a classical soloist, including concerto appearances at Avery Fisher Hall, Carnegie Hall, London’s Barbican Center, the Paris Opera, and the Hollywood Bowl. In fact, that is Dave’s cello leading the way at the top of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. He is the winner of the prestigious SONY Elevated Standards Awards for Excellence in the area of Classical Music.

It is impossible to predict what Dave will do in Bass Hall, except that we know it will be brilliant and energetic.

MaxZT promo1As if that weren’t enough, Dave is bringing is frequent collaborator, Max ZT. Lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR, and a “Force  of Nature by NY Music Daily, Max ZT is an innovator of the instrument. Taking his roots from classical Irish folk music, Max has transplanted his compositional techniques to both Senegal, where he studied the Maninko technique with the Cissoko griot family, and to Mumbai, India, where he received a grant to study under the treat santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. His fresh perspective and bold experimentalism have been the backbone to beautiful, complex, and genuine compositions, while his unorthodox playing style has been a pioneering force in revolutionizing dulcimer techniques.

Arian SalehAnd even more – additional special guest Arian Saleh. Music has been a part of Arian Saleh’s life from the beginning. The grandson of Monir Vakili, Iran’s First Lady of Opera, and the son of acclaimed recording artist ZaZa, Saleh’s unique sound is deeply rooted in a troubadour tradition and has a heavy emphasis on lyrics and melody, with nods to gypsy, tango, and electronic music.

In late 2009 he met with the Wizardz of Oz and began work on what would become his first recording, “The Cobblestone EP”. This defining group of songs went on to gain great audience and critical response, sending him around the country playing shows.

While on tour in New York, Saleh teamed up with virtuoso cellist Dave Eggar and luminary drummer Chuck Palmer and the three began playing and touring extensively as a trio. They, together with DJ/Producer Chuck Wild (Captain Planet) recorded and recently released Saleh’s first full length album, Undone. The music video for the single “Underhill” premiered on The Huffington Post and the album itself has been described “like coming in and out of different worlds of music, guided by an incredible voice” and heralded as “one of the best out-of-left-field releases of 2013”. Continuing the album’s praise, “Open Your Mind Let Me Out” has been nominated for an Independent Music Award.

Also working as a composer, TINTO, a short film he scored, was an official selection in the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Currently residing in Brooklyn, Saleh continues to play all over the country, writing honest, mischievous and romantic music that asks more questions than it answers.
