Simpson University Presents Free Jazz and Electronics Concerts

For Immediate Release


The Simpson University Music Department’s concert The Loud Show

REDDING, Calif. - The Simpson University Music Department presents “The LOUD Show!” at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. March 14 inside the Emeriti Dining Center on campus, 2211 College View Drive.

Admission is free; dinner is available during the first set for $9.

The Simpson University Jazz Ensemble will perform from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m., during dinner. The ensemble, led by Cleveland Boney, will present jazz and gospel music.

From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., Simpson alumnus Jonathan Tucker ’08 and music professor Dwayne Corbin will team up for a long set of groove-based electronic music with live drums. Starving Architect’s music is intentionally high energy and high decibel, as the sound is designed to envelop the listener—ear plugs will be available at the door at no charge.

This Starving Architect project was partially funded by a Simpson University Dale Scholar grant and was one of Dr. Corbin's 2014 sabbatical projects.
