KAFM is proud to present Lipbone Redding and the Lipbone Orchestra in the Radio Room on Thursday, September 3 at 7 pm. Lipbone Redding is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/voice-instrumentalist and former subway musician. Lipbone Redding crafts original songs which incorporate New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. He’s known for his talent to use his voice to sound exactly like a trombone. Lipbone and his two-man orchestra -- drummer Rich Zukor and upright bassist Jeff Eyrich -- make for a show greased with uncanny riffs of vocal trumpeting, booming mouth percussion, hilarious side moments and esoteric lyrics. According to his bio, Lipbone represents the jazz, blues, jam and soul version of a human beat-box.
Lipbone Redding has produced events for the Museum of Sound Recording in New York City. One event, Lovesphere -- a multi-media presentation that incorporated several of the performing arts -- is in its eleventh year of existence. He also brings the influence of travel to his art. During the early part of this decade, Lipbone traveled through South America, along the Ganges River in India, hitchhiked across Europe and drove across the States in his camper, “The Beautiful Flying Machine.” With a vocal-trombone and nuances of exotic Eastern influence, Lipbone Redding maintains a musical act that is markedly different from other singer/songwriters.
"...the new music is absolutely the Very Best!"

“Lipbone's newest EP Science Of Bootyism (S.O.B. for short) brings to life characters from his own observations in the subways of New York City. From the original head-bobbing lounge number "Old Tattoo,” to a remembrance of funky nights around the burning street barrel via the soul classic, "Be Thankful,” Lipbone and his Orchestra lead us on a unique journey. When we meet the bawdy town drunk in his ballad, "The Land of Drunk and Stoned," followed by soul heartbreaker "Sweet Melinda,” it illuminates the generous and communal vibe that he brings to his live shows and songs.”
