With an extensive and amazing track record of unique and imaginative performances featuring his curious instrument and copious amounts of originality, Mike Silverman, aka That1Guy [web site | Amazon.com], has set himself apart as a true one-of-a-kind talent. He has been a consistent favorite at festivals, including an award-winning performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and his legendary collaboration and multiple tours with Buckethead as The Frankenstein Brothers further cemented his virtuoso story as a creative visionary.
His pioneering main instrument, The Magic Pipe, a monstrosity of metal, strings, and electronics, facilitates the dynamic live creation of music and magic in ways only That1Guy can conjure. With the addition of incorporating magic seamlessly into his live shows, he has achieved an all-inclusive audio/visual performance unlike anything experienced before. "So much of my music has miraculous qualities to it because it's hard to tell what's going on. There are lots of sleights of hand and sonic misdirection. It feels like I was meant to do magic."
Silverman grew up a self-proclaimed music geek, steeped in the influence of his jazz musician father, and he enrolled in the San Francisco Conservatory of Music before joining the local jazz scene himself as a sought-after percussive bassist. "In my case, being a bass player, I just felt very restricted by the instrument itself," he says. "I've always wanted to sound different and have my own sound. I was headed that way on the bass, but for me to fully realize what I was hearing in my head sonically I was going to have to do it my way." His influential and innovative double bass style eventually evolved into what we see today as That1Guy and The Magic Pipe.
As his story continues to develop, Billboard noted, "In the case of Mike Silverman's slamming, futuristic funk act... the normal rules of biology just don't apply."
"Like a one-man band plucked from the pages of Dr. Seuss, That 1 Guy delivers earthshaking future funk from 'the magic pipe' to accompany his madcap lyrics about turbo snails, meat storms, and weasel pot pies."
