Joining Claypool, Skerik, and Mike Dillon is special guest Vinnie Colaiuta, a GRAMMY winning drummer who has toured and recorded with many artists, including Frank Zappa, having played drums on the iconic ‘Joe’s Garage album.’ Tickets are on sale at 1pmET/10amPT today.

“I am a very fortunate fellow on many levels, and now and again I have to sit back and take stock and relish the fact that I’ve been able to befriend and collaborate with so many amazing artists in and around the music world,” Claypool comments. “That list of champions is about to get a notable addition with the upcoming Bastard Jazz shows with the mighty Vinnie Colaiuta on drums. I’ve met Vinnie a few times but have never had the opportunity to stand before him with a four-string hunk of furniture in my hands. Those of you in the know will understand the epic possibilities of this impending interaction. Those of you who don’t, I suggest you get on the YouTube machine and go down the Vinnie wormhole. Your brain may melt.”
Two VIP upgrades will be offered for the festivities on 12/31. The “Bastard” option includes 1 GA ticket along with a VIP only Q&A with Les Claypool, a Claypool Cellars Champagne Toast, an exclusive Bastard Jazz NYE poster signed by Les, VIP laminate, early entry, and crowd-free merchandise shopping before doors.
