BOO2! - On Halloween Night, Friday, October 31st at 8pm at the Temple Performing Arts Center, Steve Tirpak brings together some of Philly's most talented Jazz artists for an intensely, spooky good time in a special Halloween performance, a monster bash called, “Boo2!”
We are talking about a hot, 13 piece band that can effortlessly play Jazz, Blues, R&B, Rock and Hiphop. With an array of powerful and inventive singers, who make you forget who originally sang these tunes. There will be a rapper with many styles, who can flow on any beat, any tune. We also have Mr. Sonny James aka DJ Statik, spinning on the wheels of steel before and after the band. So, if they didn't make you move your feet - he will. DON’T SLEEP. If you weren't there last year, you can catch up this time. I repeat... DON’T SLEEP. This is gonna be the event not to miss.
There is something for everyone! Come and enjoy Jazz, Blues, Rock, R&B and Hiphop tunes, like Snoop Dog's, "Murder Was The Case They Gave Me" to Wayne Shorter's "Witchhunt." Boo2! musical director, Steve Tirpak, is driven by the need to please his listeners. “I’m writing with the audience in mind,” he says. “Generally speaking, I’m trying to capture the essence of the song and be true to the artist. Especially when you’re working with hits – these songs are hits for a reason. You can be innovative, but make sure that what you’re doing is better than the original, if that’s even possible. I like to keep the roots of what makes the song special, and then when the moment arises do something a little out of the ordinary.”
Come join the Halloween procession with the hope of being judged the “Best Costume”! There will be prizes! The band will be in full costume too so come and enjoy refreshments & dancing !
