Chris Bates Red 5

Hey now we’re going in again. 
And now we are seven.
Incorporating sounds from across the globe into a tightly knit ensemble, Red 5 explores and creates fresh, original music from the mind of bassist Chris Bates. With one stellar album, ‘New Hope’ (2012) released, Chris has just about enough material for a new album. Come out to Icehouse and catch this rare appearance of Red 5 featuring many of the Twin Cities finest improvisers.
