Max Kutner - Guitar, Stefan Kac - Tuba, Mike Lockwood - Drums

"Evil Genius is comprised of three virtuosic beasts on instruments that you would never suspect would form a happy marriage. As you explore their debut recording you quickly discover that guitar, tuba, and drums can move far afield from oompah music. This band can do it all …. whether its in your face rock, free wheeling open improvisation, 20th century classical music, or jazz ….. they can pull it off and upend all of your expectations." - Larry Koonse, Guitarist and CalArts Jazz Faculty
"Sure, it would be possible for three sharp-minded musicians to make complex music of an academic, beard-stroking nature, but Evil Genius take things further with their sheer melodic invention."- John Cavanagh, Radio DJ for Radio Six International, BBC Scotland
"Even with just these three instruments, this trio sounds fully formed, tight, intense and explosive at times. There is a manic, infectious energy here that reminds me of the Minutemen on occasion."- Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery (New York, NY)

Cost: $6-15 sliding
