DJAM KARET 25th YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR 2009

The award-winning instrumental music group Djam Karet will be performing a few select live performances this year, both in the United States and in Europe, to celebrate their 25th anniversary together. These will be their first performances in seven years.

On August 22nd 2009 Djam Karet will be the headliner at a 3-day Progressive music festival called the Crescendo Festival, located on the beautiful west coast of France. For more then 10 years, this great festival has been held every August in the picturesque seaside town of Saint Palais sur Mer. Djam Karet feels very honored to be this year’s headliner at this important European festival. Djam Karet will also be performing at a few Los Angeles area events in the weeks prior to the French show, the details of which are still being worked out. Updated information on these performances will be available soon, including times and locations.

Formed in 1984, they have released 15 albums so far. The group will be performing music from throughout their long career, much of which has never been performed live before. They will also be debuting some brand new tunes as well. These shows are a rare opportunity to see a group that ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN Magazine said "Rivals the glory days of Pink Floyd". These will be the first live shows by Djam Karet since they performed at NEARfest with Porcupine Tree in 2001, and at ProgDay with Happy The Man in 2002.

Working in their private studio, Djam Karet has been able to create a full and massive live sound by adding an additional player to their live performances. For these performances the line up is: Gayle Ellett (keyboards & guitar), Mike Henderson (guitar), Aaron Kenyon (bass), Chuck Oken, Jr. (drums & electronic percussion) and Mike Murray (guitar). New music and new arrangements of older tunes, are the main focus.

There are also some new CD projects nearing completion, with more information to be announced later.

Excellent.  Since they probably won't be visiting Atlanta, maybe a live DVD in the future plans?
