Sam Ryan and Jarrett Plett step out as Lionzgate
HiT instructor, Sam Ryan, and graduate, Jarrett Plett ¬† are playing their first full set ¬†at the Anza Club on Halloween.
Lionzgate’s first test run, on the big stage, happened last saturday night when they opened ¬†up a show playing Knife Parties Centipede at the Bell Center of Performing Art .
The crowd loved it, even though they came to ¬†enjoy classical piano, choirs, and string sections, which followed.
Lionzgate juxtaposes that simplicity with the tribal nature of a single hand drum controlling a modern¬†electronic music and visual system.
Electro DJ¬†Sam Ryan¬†and¬†Percussionist¬†Jarrett Plett¬†will engage in a truly interactive performance.
The name Lionzgate, inspired by a recent near brush with death. Sam walked away from a head on car collision on the Lions Gate Bridge spring of 2012
which served as a catalyst to re-evalute and look within, resulting in bringing this project to life.
