 Hi -Energy, Lots of Fun...

With plenty of concert and street festival appearances under their belt, Planet Flippo keeps the energy high and the grooves changing with tunes by Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, Lennon/McCartney, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the Family Stone and a smattering of Flippo original like Syrtotic and  Spring Joy.

C O N C E R T #2 : 

"Tao Tunes and More"

In ensemble's fifth CD, “Tao Tunes,” Dave Flippo set various chapters of the ancient Tao Te Ching to music. Perhaps surprisingly, the  music's grooves, tempos and energy levels are all over the map. The pieces range from Latin to swing, jazz waltz to ballad. The originals are interspersed with like-minded contemporary tunes by Lenon/McCartney, Flaming Lips, Eden Ahbez and Stevie Wonder.

C O N C E R T #1 : 

"Jazz For the Generations"

Our concert program explores various energy levels and moods. Dave has created extraordinary arrangements of familiar contemporary tunes from the 60’s that offers something familiar to every generation. The music offers wide range of tempos and grooves by artists like Lennon/McCartney, Steely Dan, Bowie, Radiohead, Dylan, Amy Winehouse, Sting, and Soundgarten.
