The Music Makers Series with THE SLIP!!!

Watch. Listen. Learn. A special session with The Slip!

The Urban Studio Music Makers Series provides rare opportunities to see world class musicians play their music, answer questions, demonstrate techniques, and tell stories in limited-seating sessions. March 29th, the Music Makers Series presents a special session with the Boston-based trio, The Slip. The Slip pushes musical frontiers incorporating world-rhythms, jazz, and electronic influences into their own brand of hard-hitting and graceful folk rock. The Slip, educated at Berklee College of Music, has an uncanny ability to seemlessly weave complex poly-rhythms into soulful songs that will make you get on your feet and knock you off your feet with their incredible musicianship. Listen to their music online: http://www.theslip.com/ In an era of HUGE record labels, enormous venues, and mediocre pop music, the Music Makers Series reconnects listeners and world-class musicians in special, closed-door sessions.
