Art Fair Performance

     Flux Bikes and Abstract Black (Jayve Montgomery) interleave sampled bike sounds into a live performance on bicycle wheels, saxophone, and flute.

     We played at Gethsemane Garden Center Art Fair on August 13th, 2011. The set was interrupted by a rather boomy thunder storm. Being outside we were forced to tear down our gear and PA in a hurry! After it passed, we were able to resume unscathed but electrified nonetheless.

WEST COAST TOUR

Using our bicycles for transportation as well as instrumentation, Flux Bikes will tour part of the Pacific coast, performing at scheduled shows and also playing informally in public.  We'll have a mobile music setup and recharchable batteries which will enable us to throw down whenever appropriate.

Rob (Chicago, IL) and Marty (Lake Tahoe, CA) will meet in Los Angeles, CA and ride to Santa Cruz where we'll be joined by Adam and Shawn Wille (Lake Tahoe). From there, we'll all continue to the San Francisco, engaging with bicycle and music communities along the way, and finally wind our way up to Lake Tahoe. Check back for more details!
