J.Wail and Chuck Morris play in Eagle Vail Friday
May 26, 2011
On Friday at Paddy’s Pub in Vail, digital wizardry and modern-era gadgets will surge in an amalgamation of buzzes, beeps and blips. The pulsing of machines and pounding of concrete and steel in symphonic collage power our world. J.Wail, along with Chuck Morris of Lotus, rise to the call of the sonic traffic controller, poised behind a palette of electronic devices, guitar, booming bass and live drums. J.Wail’s enthusiasm and strong desire to share and spread music has earned them a reputation as one of the hardest working artists in the touring industry. J.Wail’s tours have logged countless road miles with hundreds of club/theater dates and festivals performed on all corners of the North America. Stretching into the DJ-based dance sound with the approach of a live band J.Wail creates “club-funk-glitch-rock” through innovative techniques using live guitar, live drums, vocals, synthesizers and live electronics. J.Wail has appeared and collaborated with prominent musicians including Michael Travis and Jason Hann (EOTO/String Cheese Incident), Dean Ween (Ween), Brock Butler (Perpetual Groove), Tom Constanten (Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, ex member of the Grateful Dead), Clay Parnell (Brothers Past) and members of the Brazilian Girls. J.Wail has performed on bills with national artists such as Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Lotus, Kraddy, Break Science f/ Adam Deitch, Particle, Perpetual Groove, Ana Sia, Boombox and DJ Le Spam & the Spam Allstars. Morris has played festival stages such as Rothbury, Wakarusa and Red Rocks in the band Lotus.
