Michael Kollwitz, Chapman Stick musician, will perform at Studio B on Thursday, October 13, at 7:00 pm.
One of the instrument’s earliest pioneers and one of Emmett Chapman’s first students, Kollwitz is a Chapman Stick virtuoso with 39 years experience. Played with both hands using a pianistic technique on a stringed instrument, the Chapman Stick is unique, versatile and probably the most expressive musical instrument ever devised. The result is music that sounds unlike any other instrument.
Devoted to spreading knowledge of the Chapman Stick, Kollwitz has performed at over a thousand festivals, fairs & corporate events combined. Carlos Santana said his music is “a gift from the heart.” He’s been an opening act for The Beach Boys and has introduced many to the new instrument including Mick Fleetwood, Herbie Hancock, Keith Emerson, Steve Morse and others.
His albums and music have spread worldwide and he’s shared his talents with well over a million people in the last decade. His music has been featured on national radio, television appearances and a short documentary. His musical style encompasses light jazz, classic rock, latin, Hawaiian and other influences. With a catalog of 19 releases he is one of the most prolific Chapman Stick recording artists to date.

Local and legendary guitarist, J.R. Robusto, will perform at Studio B on Thursday, October 27, at 7:00 pm.
J.R. Robusto has been dubbed a n eccentric musical genius, a modern-day Mozart and a performer of virtuosic proportions. All of which is true.
Although Robusto’s most commonly seen performing on guitar, both acoustic and electric, he has mastered a dozen instruments and brings his unique style to all of them, in many different musical genres. His song writing and word craft are passionately poetic and no less impressive.
Come see and hear J.R. Robust for yourself, and be prepared for an amazing, pyrotechnic, passionate, stirring and inspiring performance.
