The A-List of Bay Area Counterculture
The chemistry between T.E.N. was undeniable the first time these legendary musicians collaborated in the studio. Individually, each musician is a reputable force to be reckoned with. Together, they are an unstoppable force of music. The bandmates individual style molded by their vibrant personalities creates a fusion of powerful, raging brilliance with delicate sensitivity.
Having spurred from the Bay Area, Thomas Pridgen was first blowing minds with The Coup, before joining the Mars Volta (with whom he received a GRAMMY® in 2009). Also a virtuoso, Eric McFadden has been heralded by Guitar Player Magazine as “the closest thing SF has to a modern day Jimi Hendrix.” Eric has toured the world with the likes of George Clinton/P-Funk, Stockholm Syndrome and Eric Bourdon/The Animals. Last, but certainly not least, is Norwood Fisher, who stands out not only for his remarkable bass playing (primarily with the legendary punk/ska band, Fishbone), but also his versatility and incredible musical sensibility. A bass genius, Norwood has been praised and sighted as an influence by such greats as Flea of The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Les Claypool of Primus. Norwood can play his ass off, write, sing and contribute stellar production ideas.
Together, TEN possesses a range of musical elements, ranging from rock and blues, punk and funk, flamenco and rockabilly, soul and hip hop. On Valentines Day, these legendary musicians will perform the music of the Jimi Hendrix: Bold As Love, for a once in a lifetime musical experience!
