George Salazar, Brian Charles Johnson, Libby Winters and More Will Celebrate Release of "Eli Zoller and The O Pioneer Band"
12 May 2014
Eli Zoller and The O Pioneer Band will celebrate the release of their self-titled debut EP May 25 at Joe's Pub.
The 9:30 PM concert will feature performances from George Salazar (Here Lies Love), Brian Charles Johnson (American Idiot), Victoria Huston-Elem (The Addams Family), Libby Winters (American Idiot), Haven Burton (Shrek), Molly McAdoo (Miko and the Musket), Ben Clark (Circus in the Winter) and Colin McAdoo (Soul Doctor).
"Eli Zoller and The O Pioneer Band" is Zoller's debut EP. Zoller began songwriting two years ago, writing original compositions for Jimmy Maize's 100-actor Spoon River Anthology adaptation.
"Rooted in folk-bluegrass melody and combining influences ranging from Chris Thile to Paul Simon, Zoller's songs are directly from the heart, well-suited for Memorial Day whiskey-drinking, and not to be missed," according to press notes.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
