Having just recently returned from a barnstorming tour of Europe, the band will be holed up in Previte’s Columbia County studio the week before this date, finishing up their second recordingBobby Previte toured with his young Weather Clear, Track Fast band, introducing a new generation of musicians to the scene, including three whose stars have shone brightly since – Jamie Saft, Cuong Vu, and Andrew D’Angelo. With the Visitors, bandleader and drummer Previte has found an equally adventurous ensemble of musicians, well-suited to playing his dynamic, original compositions and improvising within the constraints he imposes.

Previte, a seminal figure of the 1980s New York downtown scene, is well-known to Helsinki audiences for his monthly appearances with his Voodoo Orchestra North, which explores the fusion-era Miles Davis music of “Bitches Brew.”
