The Newton Theatre presents Spyro Gyra

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents Spyro Gyra on Thursday, March 30, 2023 at 8:00pm. The multiple Grammy award-winning jazz fusion band has sold over ten million albums worldwide since the 70s. The Jazz giants have led the charge with their breakthrough Morning Dance album. They have had continued success with 29 studio albums, two live albums, and three compilation albums, marking their place in history as one of the world’s great jazz fusion bands.

Spyro Gyra has long been known to its peers in the contemporary jazz world as a “well oiled road machine” due to its relentless schedule of 48 years of performing. To date, they have logged more than 10,000 shows on six continents and released 35 albums, garnering platinum and gold records along the way. Spyro Gyra rose from humble beginnings in Buffalo, New York in 1974 to their current international prominence in the jazz world. Every year, they continue to exhibit how to remain among a relative handful of artists who will be able to say that they have worked constantly in their 50 year  career in the year 2024. Their energy and joy in concert match their unmatched musicality.

As Spyro Gyra looks forward to the future, they show no sign of slowing down. Over the last 40-plus years, they have performed over five thousand shows, released thirty-one albums (not counting Best Of compilations) selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums. Although few acts have accomplished this type of success, they have done it by constantly challenging themselves as is evidenced by their last studio release The Rhinebeck Sessions which was written and recorded over three days in the studio.

Spyro Gyra is music whose core and desire was never for strictly commercial purposes. There was no calculated effort to sell millions of records, sell out concerts throughout the world, and inspire a whole new generation of musicians seeking an eclectic road of their own. When Beckenstein and Wall first started jamming back in Buffalo, they just did it because it was a blast, pure and simple. They made lyrical, jazzy music for a few folks at Jack Daniels, developed a high energy live gig, one thing led to another, and suddenly, instrumental music was never quite the same. The fun was suddenly not just theirs, but ours as well.

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 9, 2022 at 10:00am. The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
