On Friday, November 3rd at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington will host a double bill featuring two of jazz's most innovative drummers and their bands, The Dave Weckl Band and Steve Smith's Vital Information.

Dave Weckl is one of the most respected and talked about drummers on the scene today. For almost 20 years he has maintained a reputation amongst his fans and peers as one if the very finest in contemporary music In 1985 Michael Brecker told Chick Corea to check out this new young guy in town, Dave Weckl, for his new electric band. That was the beginning of a seven-year relationship with both the `Elektric' and `Akoustic Bands', where nine recordings and 3 videos were produced, and the `Akoustic Band' winning a Grammy for the bands first release.

Greasy grooves, virtuosic soloing and sympathetic group interplay are all a part of the "live" Vital Information experience. Formed 16 years ago by drummer Steve Smith (he of arena mega-stardom with platinum rockers Journey). Vital Information has gradually shed it jazz-lite tendencies to become a first-rate fusion ensemble.

Tickets for this performance are $30.00 general public ($22.50 for IMAC Members) and can be obtained by calling IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show.
