Gus Mancini’s Sonic Soul Band to Perform at Zen Mountain Monastery

Posted by Zen Mountain Monastery

Capping off the Buddha’s Enlightenment Vigil weekend at Zen Mountain Monastery, Gus Mancini’s Sonic Soul Band will perform a concert at the Sangha House on Sunday, December 8, at 7 pm.

Drawing on influences from Monk to funk, the Sonic Soul Band create spellbinding and exciting musical landscapes. These four world-class musicians come from disparate places, yet perform with a collective freedom, a summoning grounded by a mutual respect and absolute conviction that whatever they share works — and it does, from tender saxophone to popping funk bottoms, sonic-searing guitar energy, and vivid melodies, with harmonic richness that has marveled audiences wherever they’ve played.

Gus Mancini’s Sonic Soul Band is: The Sultan of Sonic Soul, saxophonist Gus Mancini; guitarist Peter Head; Michael Colletti on bass; and Ruperto Ifil on drums. Read more about them here.

Tickets are $12; you can make a reservation online, or by calling (845) 688-2228.
