With their much anticipated US Summer tour kicking off this week, “The Jamband Velvet Underground,” Col. Bruce Hampton & the Aquarium Rescue Unit, continue to pull surprises and share some exciting news with fans.  The Georgia “Cult Ensemble” have reunited to rattle the landscape with a series of live performances the highlight of which is their homecoming show.  To mark the occasion the group, along with TourGigs, are extremely excited to announce that they are teaming up to deliver a live stream of the Georgia Theatre in Athens on August 8th to spread their special Jam across the universe.

The HD multi-cam webcast kicks off LIVE at 9PM EST on Saturday August 8th from the historic Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. Fans unable to join in on Saturday will not be left out - the special will be on a continuous replay for 24 hours after it originally airs. ARU Enthusiasts, and the curious who purchase the webcast, are also able to watch the replays.  Special incentives are offered to fans who ACTIVATE and purchase the show within the next 7 days. 

With the daring, iconoclastic Hampton at the helm, the Aquarium Rescue Unit continues to play a seminal role in fostering today’s vital, thriving improvisational music community - and their presence is still felt. Since Hampton and the band parted ways in 1993, members have gone on to both inspire and enliven the music of the genre’s most revered practitioners: Herring (guitar) with Widespread Panic,The Dead, Jazz is Dead, the Ringers, and his own solo project. Burbridge (bass) with his band the Peacemakers and with the Allman Brothers and the Tedeschi Trucks Band (and a soon to be announced surprising resume addition); and Sipe (aka Apt. Q-258, drums) with his own trio and collaborations with Phil Lesh, Béla Fleck, Susan Tedeschi, Trey Anastasio, Jazz is Dead, Alex Machacek, Debashish Bhattacharya, and many more. For these dates, the ARU will also be joined by keyboardist Matt Slocum, who performed with them at the 2011 Georgia Theatre show.
