featuring: Richard Fortus, DJ Logic, Freekbass, & Steve Molitz
This line-up is SICK! Headtronics is the live-music group, blending four distinct genres: electronica, jam, funk and rock. Featuring the musicianship of some of the best in the touring circuit, the twist is that every Headtronics performance is completely improvisational. Founding members DJ Logic, Steve Molitz and Freekbass, started the group after an impromptu jam at The Church of Universal Love & Music, and have since featured guest artists such a Bernie Worrell, DJ Spooky, Adam Deitch (Lettuce) – and now welcome guitarist, Richard Fortus from Guns N’ Roses/Pale Divine, for 2019 tour dates.
With a Headtronics show, songs are built and created, live on stage, by a super-group of musicianship. No two shows are ever the same. Simply put, to experience a Headtronics show, is to be at a Headtronics show.
