Acts of Love on CD

** Lunar Ensemble ** MySpace -- myspace.com/lunarensemble Lunar Bear began in the 80's with John 'Lunar' Richey reciting verse along side multi-percussionist Richard 'Bear' Graham. Lunar Bear performed often at Rutgers in New Brunswick, NJ and in NYC (Nuyorican Poetry Cafe, Life Cafe). Lunar teamed up with Billy Snow's band, Young Turks, while continuing to do duets with Bear during the 1980's. When Billy left for England, terminating the Turks, Bear and Lunar formed the Lunar Bear Ensemble. During this time, Robert Musso asked Lunar to join Machine Gun, a NYC Jazz/Avant unit, as their tape manipulating sound and word collagist. Machine Gun released three CD's which received rave press reviews (Rolling Stone/Spin) and frequently toured the East Coast. Machine Gun's final performance was at Holland's Jazz Marathon in 1995. Upon Bear's departure to Memphis the group continued as Lunar Ensemble. In 2007 they released 'OffBeat' and in 2008 followed up with 'Acts of Love', recorded by Robert Musso, featuring Dave Dreiwitz of Ween playing pocket trumpet & percussion, and Robert on sitar. Lunar Ensemble presently performs around the NYC-area. The current, consistent line-up is: John 'Lunar' Richey, Doug 'Sluggo' Vizthum, Tom DiEllo, Chris McKenna, & Greg D. Lunar has performed with one or more musicians at many readings in NYC (Nuyorican Poet's Cafe, The New Museum, The New Music Gallery, Context & Mother. Many times that musician was Jack Petruzzelli (Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright), who works so well in creating 'soundscape' collaborations.
