From the Schizophrenia of Skerik Skerik

[Skerik feature image by Aaron Schwartz]

Skerik Skerik, Skerik Sin Carne, whatever name you like, Skerik is a master purveyor of the tenor saxophone. And he definitely needs a program to know what band is performing on what date. Hope this helps… a little.

First up, Crack Sabbath in Seattle. Following that are ten shows with True Loves, up and down the coast (well, down, then up). Next comes a compact five-night rumble in the Northeast called AMENDOLA vs. BLADES, with Scott Amendola (drums), Will Blades (Hammond B3, keyboards), Cyro Baptista (percussion), and Skerik. 

There are two shows to celebrate the release of the Sound Cipher record All That Syncs Must Diverge with Tim Alexander (percussion) and Timm Mason (synths), and then Skerik joins John Medeski et al. for a Jazz Fest rumble at The Howlin’ Wolf in NOLA called Worship My Organ.
