The Ridiculous Trio Plays The Stooges
Project of trombonist, Mike Hagedorn- The Stooges classics played on Trombone (Hagedorn), Tuba (Rob Pleshar) and drums (Shannon Marrow). Not entirely novelty, The Ridiculous Trio adds something new to the old songs, sometimes bringing them to a free jazz frenzy. I saw them play live a couple months ago and it was quite hilarious, a polka party gone awry.

Mike Hagedorn is extremely entertaining to watch play, he is a big bald fellow who realizes the comedic power of the trombone visually & aurally. He practices, what he calls, "Pimprovisation"...
" I make music that is simple, direct, but layered with subtext. I aim to bring challenges and rewards back to the listener, through subtle melody and explosive energy. Free of irony, innocence is restored, reverted to its primal state, and any further notion of style or genre is flushed away."
