Backstage with Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, Satch Hoyt and Melvin Van Peebles


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Can you imagine 20 musicians on stage at the same time. THe first half of their set was dedicated to Miles Davis and their second set to James Brown. I went back to meet Melvin Van Peebles after his set and before Burnt Sugar.Thank you Satch Hoyt for the beautiful introduction and a fun night. The theatre turned into a party with everyone in the audience up on their feet.
