Bootzilla Productions, in collaboration with the Bootsy Collins Foundation, presents the “Summer Live” show, featuring Chris “Freekbass” Sherman with Ouiwey Collins’ FunkSquad at Bogart’s, 2621 Vine St., Cincinnati, on Saturday, June 17. Doors open at 7 pm and the show begins at 8 pm. All ages are welcome.
As part of this thrilling night of music, acclaimed music photographer Michael Weintrob will present his interactive, fine art photography exhibit, INSTRUMENTHEAD, featuring ingenious portraits of musicians such as Bootsy Collins, Freekbass and many others who also appear in his newly released, award-winning book by the same name. INSTRUMENTHEAD is a surrealist look into the soul of a musician, not through the eyes as with traditional portraiture, but through his/her instrument. As a visionary project that was seventeen years in the making, the INSTRUMENTHEAD collection encompasses striking portraits shot over the years by Weintrob, which capture uniquely intimate expressions of a diverse array of well-known entertainers—from sidemen to superstars.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Guitars for Vets, including a raffle of signed copies of Weintrob’s new book. People are also encouraged to bring a household item to help support our veterans. Admission is $15.
