Here’s the scoop on our evening:    

  • The Bakery team is creating a totally unique and intimate experience for us

  • Our evening will feature one of The Bakery’s artist-in-residence, Chris Gravely Ensemble https://www.redwatersmusic.com/

  • You can expect performances from Chris Gravely with Lo Pararo, Moe Winograd, and George Trotter

  • Get your tickets here ($20):  https://bit.ly/2FIp5O7

  • All proceeds go to the artists and support of The Bakery community

Featured Artists:

Lo Pararo is a multi-media artist, musician, poet, teacher, and all-around performer of many definitions and dimensions. As a non-binary individual, Lo’s poetic content expresses the human experience behind the eyes of someone struggling to embrace the “flesh-suit” they arrived on this earth in. Body dysphoria plagues so many more people than one might realize, and the more  pressure put on people to live out the gender roles that are expected and assumed by those who blindly follow them, the more separated they will continue to become from one another, as well as from themselves. Lo’s poetry captures raw, human emotion— diving into the depths of existential crisis after separation anxiety attack, & covering the vast array of highs and lows that come about when sifting through this experience one calls “life.”


Moe Winograd is a freelance double and electric bassist, private instructor, and luthier-in-training in Atlanta. He currently performs with the Georgia Philharmonic and the Georgia Symphony Orchestra. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Double Bass Performance from the New England Conservatory. As an orchestral musician, he has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a non-orchestral musician, Moe has played in many genres including Jazz, Rock, R&B, Funk, Folk, and Hip-Hop.  When he’s not performing, you can find him hanging with friends and family or going to shows across Atlanta.


George Trotter has been making music in Atlanta for over 30 years. He has played in rock bands, composed music for , and performed in Theatrical productions for stage and film, and is a frequent collaborator with local experimental improvisors. A current fancy is creating dreamy videos and posting to YouTube.


  Chris Gravely is an experienced freelance percussionist of 18+ years. He has studied drum set, hand drums, and classical percussion under various teachers such as John LaMattina, River Gueguerian, Michael Cebulski, Caleb Harron, Stuart Gerber, and Charles Settle. As a soloist, Chris has performed two concertos with the Georgia Perimeter Wind Ensemble, and also premiered works by local Atlanta composers such as Lowell Fuchs and Michael Standard. He has played/plays in a variety of groups such as The Dekalb Symphony Orchestra, Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra, APO, GSO, Loner, The Tin Man, Department 88, Red Waters Quintet, etc., in which he plays anything from found objects to timpani. In addition to being a performer, Chris is also a composer of classical and contemporary music. He premiered his own piece, LIFE, in March of 2017. In addition to his solo album, Chris sound designed and composed the score for Dangerous Women, an immersive horror experience, with The Weird Sisters Theatre project, Sanctuaries and Fortresses, a live dance premier work, Birth of Pleasure, the film adaptation of Sanctuaries and Fortresses, and is currently composing original music for Frankenstein, an immersive theater experience by Found Stages, as well as original music for his own collective.  Chris also strives to show others how they too can turn a gift into a way of life through teaching percussion and drum set in the Atlanta area

LIFE album release show

I am going to be releasing my first solo album, entitled LIFE. 

 LIFE

1.      Birth

2.     Discovery

3.     Decay

4.     New Life

This project is based on the immergence and the natural order of life of an organism.  This ideal is not limited to that of the human species, or any particular species. The idea is simply based on a living organism coming to be, finding itself (growing), its point of decay(death), and the open ended question of a new beginning after death.  The project is structured in a way that will vividly express each of these stages of life as it progresses.

LIFE is an experience, rather than labeling it as a performance. It is designed and performed in a way that each audience member will be immersed in the story and be on their own journey as it unfolds. The project uses all live acoustic instruments such as; marimba, floor tom, shakers, snare drum, vocals, etc., to create a live loop that the audience is watching take place right before their eyes.
