Simon’s Dream: The Music of Penguin Cafe
An evening dedicated to the of music The Penguin Cafe Orchestra!
Featuring original PCO members:
Scott Petito: Bass
Jerry Marotta: Drums
'Simon's Dream' represents a rare chance to hear the eclectic and uplifting music of the seminal British instrumental group Penguin Cafe Orchestra, played live by a band which includes members of the original ensemble.
Composer and multi-instrumentalist, Jennifer Maidman (Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Boy George, David Sylvian) and trombonist, Annie Whitehead (Penguin Cafe Orchestra, David Gray, Elvis Costello, Fun Boy Three, The Culture Club) were long-standing members of the original group and collaborated extensively with its late founder Simon Jeffes. Simon started the band after a series of unusual dreams and visions about a possible dystopian future and its antidote - a magical cafe where a special kind of music would be played to open hearts, connect souls, and lift spirits!
