FUNDRAISER FOR COMMUNITY ARTS & CULTURE
Harry Waters, 33 years old is the first born child of Roger Waters, founding member of Pink Floyd. Roger is currently touring the world performing “The Wall”, where Harry is featured as one of two keyboard players on tour. The Wall comes to Bank Atlantic Center on June 15th. On June 18th, Harry returns to South Florida to play at Revolution Live as a fundraiser for Community Arts & Culture. He will play in a quartet setting with local musicians that are internationally known, with many years of touring and recording experience. Harry released a solo album in 2010 featuring his original jazz compositions (and one cover tune). Harry is inspired by musicians such as Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans, and is equally inspired by Randy Newman, Little Feat as well as The Grateful Dead and Phish. Harry has toured with Marianne Faithfull, Ozric Tentacles as well as performing with Primus, and has been an active touring member of the Roger Waters Band since 2002.
Also appearing at the show will be members of The Wall band Kipp, Mark & Pat Lennon, who along with their cousin Michael Lennon are part of the Venice, California based band, conveniently called Venice. Venice is well known for lush harmonies and smooth California sound. In an interesting twist, they found great success in the Netherlands when a Dutch DJ discovered their music and started playing it on the radio. The result has been a string of regular tours of The Netherlands to sold out audiences. Founded in 1977, they have released 13 albums.
Another member of the Wall band who will be appearing is Robbie Wyckoff. Robbie is a Michigan born, Los Angeles based singer who is highly sought after for recording sessions and touring with artists such as Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross and many others. He recently released his own album called “Lose Control”. Robbie is the lead singer for The Wall and will be sharing his talents for this fundraising event.
Special guests Spam Allstars featuring DJ Le Spam will be performing a set joined by Harry Waters and other surprise guests. Rounding out the roster of great musicians is Bobbie Lee Rodgers, whose jazz trio appears regularly at the Green Room, part of the Revolution Entertainment Complex.
The Harry Waters show at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale on June 18th is a fundraiser for the Miami based charity Community Arts & Culture
