LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 5, 2014) — Television and silver screen musician Brad Dutz and duo partner, Chris Wabich, will join the critically acclaimed University of Kentucky Percussion Ensemble to perform Dutz’s work "Freaked Out Rows" in concert 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in the Singletary Center for the Arts Recital Hall. The UK Percussion Ensemble's concert is free and open to the public.

 

Dutz and Wabich's work can be heard on several popular TV shows including “King of the Hill,” “Family Guy,” “American Idol” and “American Dad.” Dutz’s motion picture credits include “The Bourne Legacy,” “Transformers,” “Anchorman,” “Battleship” and “Star Trek 5.”

 

Dutz brings his most unique percussion instruments to recording sessions in order to create new sounds, including bones, bata, berimbau, tabla, kanjira, doumbec, riq and others. He has recorded CDs with such artists as Alanis Morrisette, KISS, Willie Nelson, LeAnn Rimes and Jeff Bridges.

 

Wabich has recorded with such artists as Ludacris, Alex Acuna and jazz legend Jeff Hamilton.

 

Also featured in the UK Percussion Ensemble concert is the Kentucky premiere of Alejandro Vinao’s "Water," a work for five percussionists and piano. Vinao’s music is known for its complex rhythmic groove and bouncing octatonic melodies. UK alumnus, percussionist and composer Brian Nozny’s beautiful piece, "Have You Seen the Grand Canyon?” is also on the bill.

 

Under the direction of James Campbell, the UK Percussion Ensemble has won the prestigious Percussive Arts Society Collegiate Percussion Ensemble Contest four times. The ensemble has performed at several Percussive Arts Society International Conventions, the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, the Bands of America Percussion Ensemble Festival, and alongside international guest artists such as Robin Engelman, Glenn Kotche, Steve Houghton, John Bergamo, Michael Burritt, Bob Becker, William Cahn, Michael Spiro, Chalo Eduardo, Ney Rosauro, Liam Teague, Dick Schory, Anders Åstrand, Richie Garcia, Dave Samuels, Danny Gottlieb, Glenn Velez, Emil Richards, Joe Porcaro, Jerry Steinholtz, David Johnson, Rich Holly, Dean Gronemeier, Fred Sanford, Thomas Burritt, John Parks, J.B. Smith, N. Scott Robinson, Andy Harnsberger, and many others.
