Jacob Varmus left his hometown, San Francisco, in 1991 to go to the University of Iowa. Like many before him, he had high hopes of coming of age as a poet while cruising the vast American heartland. He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.

The music at first had an almost funk reggae feel which then suddenly loomed into an explosion of energy with an experimental, trendy, edgy flare with its techno/synthesizer sound that surges excitement and spirit to the listener.” Annette Versage - Fairfield County Music Reporter

10pm-12am: XPRESIDENTS - Acoustic Hip Hop / Rock

images/2017/08/8848.jpg
www.facebook.com/xpresidentsband/
Playing acoustic doesn't necessarily mean you need to pull up a chair.... There is a belief amongst some that "stripping" the song down to its bare essentials is somehow more artistic, forcing the artist out from behind the protection of the amplifier. We are not of that belief. The instrumentation may change, but the performance does not. We still expect ourselves to bring the same level of energy, take the same chances, and we still expect the audience to dance. Modern music does not lend itself to this type of performance; because it is created on a computer, it is incumbent on the artist to, in essence, create a new version of their songs for performance in an acoustic setting. We do NOT rely on the computer, but we still create new arrangements for our songs in this type of environment. Same songs, same energy, just different. That's what playing acoustic is- not better or worse...just different- and we promise to bring the same level of energy and passion in this format. XPresidents Acoustic- different from how you're used to seeing it done.
