Red Square, Saturday


Darren Lyons is a percussionist, drummer, composer and producer. With the Darren Lyons Group he brings together an ensemble of musicians playing acoustic and electric jazz. The four-piece group (guitar, bass, keys, drums) are in their 17th year. They started at the Knitting Factory in 1996 and held the prestigious Saturday night slot at the Tap Bar until 2004. One critic wrote that Lyons’ latest album, Evil Genius, “succeeds in creating high-quality fusion for the 21st century.” Doctor Magnum will open.
