Wayne Krantz, the innovative and improvisational guitarist, announces his FALL 2016 US “Undercover Pop Tour.”  This time out Krantz brings his unique sensibilities to the works of a wide cross-section of musicians:  Sonic Youth, Talib Kweli & Mos Def, Paul McCartney, Ryuichi Nakamoto, Jethro Tull and others.  Taking two different bands on the road for this tour, Krantz will perform October 4 - 9 and October 25 – November 2 with 2x Salvation, with Star Truck playing the October 12-23 leg.   

This fall the tour begins on October 4th in Sellersville, PA before hitting Krantz’s home town of New York City on October 7th.  The tour continues on throughout the month of October.  After the East Coast run, Krantz will head out West, beginning with Seattle for a show at El Corazon and then on to Oakland’s famed Yoshi’s, before heading south to Santa Cruz and then on to Asia and Europe. Krantz will be joined by Zach Danziger on drums throughout, Kevin Scott on Bass with 2x Salvation, and Nate Wood on bass for Star Truck.

Krantz’s most recent album was 2014’s Good Piranha/Bad Piranha, which featured Krantz performing four different tracks with two different interpretations of each - a striking collection of engaging group improvisation and creative compositional approaches.
