About the event

Two members of the Stick Men trio return to Arcata after their highly successful sold out show last year at the Arcata Playhouse. Drummer Pat Mastelotto and guitarist Markus Reuter are joined by guitarist Trey Gunn for an evening of King Crimson influenced music with their dynamic band tu:NER on Saturday, May 18 at the Playhouse.

tu:NER is a musical trio that celebrates the music of the Double Duo era (1998 to 2003) of King Crimson, and the bands TU (Mastelotto and Gunn), The ProjeKcts (featuring Gunn and Mastelotto as well as other KC members) and Stick Men (Mastelotto, Reuter and King Crimson's stickist Tony Levin).

The group will perform their original music, improvs and honor their King Crimson/ProjeKcts DNA, as well some of the material produced by TUNER during the

past two decades. The music of those projects is known for being innovative and dynamic, drawing on elements of rock, jazz, prog, funk, and other genres. Be warned: the music can get loud.

Drummer Pat Mastelotto has proven himself quite the ambidextrous drummer, having played with such disparate acts as Mr. Mister, XTC, David Sylvian, The Rembrandts, Kimmo Pohjonen, King Crimson and Stick Men. Trey Gunn, who is known in many musician circles as the master of the Warr guitar, also has an impressive resume, having worked with King Crimson, David Sylvian, Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, Happy Rhodes, Puscifer, Tool and John Paul Jones.

Guitarist Markus Reuter playing the U8 Touch Guitar has quite the catalog under his belt collaborating with Gary Husband, Robert Rich, J. Peter Schwalm, Mark Wingfield and Devin Townsend’s touring band. Others may already know him from his work with Stick Men (also with Pat Mastelotto and Tony Levin from Peter Gabriel and King Crimson fame), TRUCE (with Asaf Sirkis and Fabio Trentini) and the fabulous Markus Reuter/Tim Motzer/Kenny Grohowski project.

All the different influences coming together through these three artists are notable for their endlessly creative approach to music, and for the highly skilled musicianship of the players involved. After three decades of partial collaborations in pairs, and two decades since Trey introduced Pat to Markus, they are working together as a trio. Together with staples from the King Crimson songbook such as EleKtriK, Level Five, Vrooom Vrooom, and FraKctured, all co-written by members of this outfit, these three amazingly talented friends guarantee an evening of mind-expanding music of the highest standards of virtuosity, innovation, and melodicity.
