Getting closer every day! Opening Sept 22
"Some plays arrive at just the right moment. For me, the cleverly executed Vino Veritas, about two middle-aged couples and an honesty-inducing bottle of wine, speaks directly and profoundly about marriage, child-rearing, career choices, even the existence of God. It also made me laugh -- hard."

08/27/2022

Performing at Studio Grand Central on Saturday, September 3rd: David Pate was born in 1954 and grew up in Clearwater, Florida, during the sixties. As a result of the many musical influences of that era, including Hendrix, Coltrane, Zappa, Sam Rivers, Ian Anderson, and Terry Riley, Pate’s solo performances are a strange eclectic mix. His improvised performances utilize extended saxophone techniques such as multiphonics controlled overtones, circular breathing, some ostinatos, and maybe a blues lick or two. After receiving an undergraduate degree in Tampa, he moved to NYC in 1979 and did graduate work at The Manhattan School of Music, studying with Joe Allard. A participant in the “loft” scene in the ’80s, he performed with Ned Rothenberg, Larry Polansky, and Eugene Chadbourne as well as in many avant-garde jazz festivals. Moving back to Florida in the late ’80s, he performed with Nat Adderley and Sam Rivers. Pate tours the US with the Temptations and has toured Europe with Sam Rivers and Bogus Pomp, a Zappa tribute band. He is very involved in music education, having taught saxophone and jazz studies at the Pinellas County Center for the Arts for the past 30 years. In his spare time, he plays old man basketball and rides great distances on a bicycle.

From the Leafmore Studios 🍋 Bookshelf: THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL Written by Becca McCoy Photography by Becca McCoy Cover art by Justin Groom This month in YOET: OCTOBER 2018 - New York City “Between September and October 2018, this was the most concentrated time I’d ever gotten to spend in New York City, so I made a point of exploring all five boroughs. One of my favorite things to do when visiting the city is taking the ferry to New Jersey and sitting riverfront on the Hudson to look at the skyline.” Published in conjunction with St. Petersburg Press, THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL is a 138-page hardcover photo anthology with a splash of memoir following Becca McCoy’s experience of traveling somewhere every month for a year. Between September 2018 and August 2019, Becca McCoy traveled to 8 states in the US and 7 other countries with 5 different travel companions and sometimes alone. THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL contains short tales and hundreds of photos celebrating the relationship-deepening, horizon-expanding, joy-inducing nature of travel, and the beauty of our diverse earth and common humanity. Available at beccamccoy.com and leafmorestudios.com. See it live on stage! THE YEAR OF EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL world premiere solo show is running from December 8-18, 2022 at Studio Grand Central & The Off-Central Players.
