Announcing a Series of Concerts at the REX Hotel

feb 2014 rex poster The Thing Is will be performing every Sunday in February 2014 at the REX Hotel in Toronto!

We’ll be premiering a series of new compositions that were inspired by a trip with my partner, Nilan Perera, to Sri Lanka last year– still-evolving works that incarnate the confusion and joy, the alienation and familiarity, the highs and the lows of exploring a society in transition, rebuilding its bonds and institutions after a devastating 30-year civil war.

And there’s quite the line-up of lovely musicians to play it, too:

Tova Kardonne- voice and composition

Mike Wark- flute

Peter Lutek- alto sax

Ali Berkok- piano

Ted Quinlan- guitar

Jim Sexton- bass

Mark Segger – drums
