STICK MEN - Tony Levin and Pat Mastelo􀆩o, the powerhouse bass and drums of the group King Crimson for
a few decades, bring that tradi􀆟on to all their playing. Levin plays the Chapman S􀆟ck, from which the band
takes it’s name. Having bass and guitar strings, the Chapman Sô€†Ÿck funcô€†Ÿons at ô€†Ÿmes like two instruments. Markus Reuter
plays his selfdesigned touch style guitar – again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And
Masteloô€†©o’s drumming encompasses not just the acousô€†Ÿc kit, but a unique electronic setup too, allowing
him to add loops, samples, percussion and more.

TONY LEVIN - Born in Boston, Tony Levin started out in classical music, playing bass in the Rochester
Philharmonic. Then moving into jazz and rock, he has had a notable career, recording and touring with John
Lennon, Pink Floyd, Yes, Alice Cooper, Gary Burton, Buddy Rich and many more. He has also released 5
solo CDs and three books. In addi􀆟on to touring with S􀆟ck Men, since more than 30 years is currently a
member of King Crimson and Peter Gabriel Band, and jazz bands Levin Brothers and L’Image. His popular
website,, featured one of the web’s first blogs, and has over 4 million visits.

PAT MASTELOTTO - Very rarely does a drummer go on to forge the most successful career on the demise of
their former hit band. Phil Collins and Dave Grohl have managed it, so too has Pat Mastelo􀆩o, a self taught
drummer from Northern California, who has also been involved with pushing the envelope of electronic
drumming. Pat has spent a lifeô€†Ÿme jumping genres from pop, to prog, to electronica to world music with –
among others – Mr. Mister, XTC, David Sylvian, The Rembrandts,
Kimmo Pohjonen, and for the last 20 years with King Crimson.

MARKUS REUTER - Markus is a composer, guitarist, and producer. Ini􀆟ally trained as a pianist, he
subsequently studied Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craô€…Œ and learned to play the Chapman Sô€†Ÿck, later moving onto
the U8 Touch Guitar. Reuter has released several solo recordings and worked extensively with other
musicians. He is one of the core members of the experimental band Centrozoon, is half of the duo Tuner
(with Pat Mastelo􀆩o) and was also a member of Europa String Choir. Reuter has collaborated with Ian
Boddy, Robert Rich, No-Man singer Tim Bowness, and many others.
