Chase Padgett brings ‘6 Guitars’ to the Ren for a functionality operate
Florida native Chase Padgett debuted his signature a single-gentleman exhibit, 6 Guitars, in 2010 and has considering that toured it as a result of a number of metropolitan areas and countries and received plenty of awards.
In the present Padgett alternates concerning six characters — a 20-year-outdated guide guitarist for the heavy-metal band Dragon Toads of Fury, a nauseatingly sweet folks singer, a Mexican classical guitarist, the chief of the “Beer Barrel” region band, a pretentious but ferociously mental present day-jazz virtuoso and an 87-year-aged Black blues participant from Mississippi — embodying each and every just one with astonishing precision and intermingling their reflections on everyday living with tunes (both expectations and originals) appropriate to each individual individuality.
This revival at the Ren provides a full band to what has earlier been just 1 gentleman on the phase, and when the clearly show was hardly ever missing anything ahead of, we can not wait around to see how considerably richer it can be.
