Bruce Hampton Projects (Madrid Express, Pharaoh’s Kitchen, Quark Alliance) as we lead ourselves and the audience through a unique ‘Symphony of Gratitude’ for the influence and outfluence of the man himself,” Rev. Jeff Mosier says. “Suwannee was one of his favorite places on earth to play music, and we hope in some unique way to bring about the heartfelt love that we all have for Bruce. Please join us! Many surprises assured. A definite don’t wanna miss moment.”
