Z2 Entertainment is set to present Ninja Bass Summit ft. Mr. Anonymous, Ivy, Bobby C, Sound TV & Psychonaut at the Fox Theatre on Friday, March 2nd.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 27th for $8.00 in advance and $11.00 day of show.
2012 kicks off with a brand new release by Mr. Anonymous entitled “Champion Sound”. Jeep Macnichol a.k.a. Mr. Anonymous a.k.a. “original drummer from the ’80’s/’90’s pop jam band The Samples” teams up with Ranking Roger from The English Beat to deliver a fresh organic sound using only live drums, bass, and guitars and even live horns.
The sound behind the album is a mix of reggae, dub, soca, and jazz, and as the founder Jeep MacNichol states, “my approach going into the album was to create a vibe like a mix of The Clash’s Black Market Clash and Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue. I wanted a raw analog punk production where the singers sound like they’re sitting in the room with you.”
Over the past 2 years, Mr. Anonymous released a Live E.P., 6 singles, 5 music videos and has attained over 10,000 downloads. He has played for thousands of fans across the state of Colorado headlining and sharing the stage with acts like Thievery Corporation, Kool Keith, Anthony B, Pretty Lights as well as a reunion show with his old band The Samples for 30,000 screaming fans at Mile High Music fest.
Macnichol started his music career as founding member and drummer of the Colorado based pop/jam band The Samples. For a decade, his musical journey included 6 national album releases, national touring for 9 months a year in every venue imaginable in every state, sharing the stage with Sting, Dave Mathews, Steel Pulse, Flaming Lips, The Wailers, Sonic Youth, Blues traveler, the Horde tour, and a performance on the Jay Leno show. After 10 years, Macnichol decided it was time to follow new creative endeavors and dive into his love of Jamaican dancehall and reggae music.
Mr. Anonymous will be joined by Ivy, Bobby C, Sound TV & Psychonaut.
