Marimba Cabaret

"What's a marimba?"

Like a xylophone, but bigger and more fabulous -- just like Brian.

Marimba Cabaret is an evening of songs and stories that combines Brian's love of musical theater, art song, and pop tunes arranged and performed on marimba, vibraphone, and voice.

See what happens when a classically-trained percussionist with musical theater sensibility --and killer shoes-- puts on a show. Nowhere else can you hear beloved melodies by theater composers, covers of rock and pop songs, and new art songs by living classical composers all in one evening.

Truly something for everyone, Brian shares his eclectic taste in music with covers from Steven Sondheim to Radiohead, Disney to Outkast, Leonard Bernstein to Florence + The Machine, with a little Whitney Houston mash-up for good measure. Shows also feature guest artists and new art songs by local composers Beau Kenyon, Thomas Oboe LeeJohn Murphree, and LA composer Derek Tywoniuk.

Directed and accompanied by percussionist Greg Jukes, Brian will sing, play and (at times) stand 7-feet tall. Read our latest review.
