Secret Chiefs 3
It’s an extraordinary time for Secret Chiefs 3. Busy like never before. The band just completed a tour of Russia, Israel, the UK and EU. A central piece of this tour was a performance with the Russian Traditional Philharmonic Orchestra of Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. The repertoire consisted mostly of SC3’s music orchestrated by SC3 bandleader Trey Spruance in collaboration with the ensemble and music director to adapt this music to adapt this music to a 61-piece Russian orchestra — that’s balalaikas, domras and bayans, not violins etc. In this event SC3 also became the rock/metal band blended into this ensemble for the performance of some Russian traditional music. It was beautiful! The event was recorded, there is talk of a DVD, and even more exciting, of taking this event outside of Russia.
Hot on the heels of this tour, SC3 embarks now on an extensive 5 week USA/Canada tour in support of their brand new album “Perichoresis”. You can read more about this intense new explosion of music on the attached write-up.
The band configuration of composer/band-leader Trey Spruance (Mr. Bungle, Faith No More), composer/multi-instrumentalist in his own right Toby Drive (Kayo Dot), versatile violinist/trumpeter/guitarist Timba Harris (Estradasphere), master John Zorn-beloved drummer Kenny Grohowski (Dapp Theory, Abraxas) and polymath maestro keyboardist Matt Lebofsky (Moe tarr, Mirthkon) is seasoned beyond all reason, at a peak of music power, with a massive repertoire that can easily span 3 shows without repeating a note (this includes the music John John Zorn assigned SC3 in his Masada series). Astonishingly, if one begins counting from 2007, this tour will see the band passing the 400-show mark! Having amassed an impressive worldwide following, visiting over 40 countries in the last few years, Secret Chiefs 3 shows no signs of slowing down (despite Spruance breaking his foot falling down the stairs in Siberia! ooops!)
