Uniquely talented one-man band, That 1 Guy, is returning to Toronto on Friday, February 6th to play The Rivoli.

Real name, Mike Silverman, brings his self-developed Magic Pipe. The instrument is a system of electronically wired steel plumbing pipes. Its shaped somewhat like a harp, with a thick bass string wired from top to bottom. He also uses a percussion technique involving an electric cowboy boot to provide the bottom end.

A classically trained upright bass player, Mike has played with a wide range of fellow musicians, including Tom Waits, Bob Weir and Yo LA Tango. He frequently collaborates and tours with Guns’ Roses guitar player, Buckethead.

According to

http://www.jambase.com/Articles/16446/That-1-Guy-New-Gear.Tour

this time he's doing it with a brand new version of his self-designed instrument, The Magic Pipe. "We're not talking about a rub, polish & tweak – we're talking all new high grade aluminum and phosphor bronze, machined by the same machinist responsible for the Phoenix Mars Lander," says Mike Silverman, aka That 1 Guy. "I can do a whole range of new techniques with this new pipe," states Silverman. "It's more refined, I have a wider range of sounds and pitch. I can get the whole thing to move in a completely new way."

Aloha,

Brad
