That 1 Guy
With an extensive and amazing track record of unique and imaginative performances
featuringhis curious instrument and copious amounts of originality, Mike Silverman aka
That1Guy has set himself apart as a true one-of-a-kind talent that rivals any other artist
currently in the entertainment industry. Averaging 150-200 shows a year all over North
America and Canada, he has been a consistent favorite at such festivals as: Wakarusa,
Electric Forest, Big Day out, All Good, Bella, High Sierra, Summer Meltdown, Montreal
Jazz Festival, and many more. He was also the ʻTap Water Awardʼ winner at the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival for best musical act. His legendary collaboration and multiple
tours with Buckethead as The Frankenstein Brothers has further cemented his
virtuoso story as a creative visionary as well.
His innovation continues to soar with the announcement of a new tour, That1Guy & The
Magic Pipe Present: An Evening of Musical Magical Wonder... The Likes of Which
Ye Haven't Yet Seen, kicking off in the early spring of 2013. Along with his pioneering
main instrument, The Magic Pipe, a monstrosity of metal, strings, and electronics,
facilitates the dynamic live creation of music and magic in ways only That1Guy can
conjure, expect to see magic as well now integrated into the already clever performance.
With this addition of incorporating magic seamlessly into his live shows, he has
legitimately achieved an all inclusive audio/visual performance unlike anything
experienced before. “So much of my music has miraculous qualities to it because itʼs
hard to tell whatʼs going on. There are lots of slights of hand and sonic misdirection. It
feels like I was meant to do magic”.
Silvermanʼs backstory is very similar to many musicians that have come before him. He
grew up a self proclaimed music geek, soaked in the influence of his jazz musician
father, and enrolled in San Francisco Conservatory of Music before joining the local jazz
scene himself as a sought-after percussive bassist. This is where the similarities end,
though, and where That1Guy truly began. “In my case, being a bass player, I just felt
very restricted by the instrument itself,” he says. “Iʼve always wanted to sound different
and have my own sound. I was headed that way on the bass, but for me to fully realize
what I was hearing in my head sonically I was going to have to do it my way”. His
influential and innovative double bass style eventually evolved into what we see today as
That1Guy and ʻThe Magic Pipeʼ.
As his story continues to develop, Billboard has famously noted, “In the case of Mike
Silvermanʼs slamming, futuristic funk act... the normal rules of biology just donʼt apply.” In
addition, Silverman also has promised new music and videos for the early part of 2013
that will only further validate his status as an industry trailblazer. “I like being my own
person”, he says. “I didnʼt set out to be a weirdo but Iʼm starting to embrace it”.
Ultimately, his motivation can be encapsulated as this: “Human beings do our best work
when weʼre challenged and pushed up against the wall”. He further explains, “By nature,
weʼre hunters and gathers, spending each day looking for their next meal. Itʼs easy to be
lazy when you donʼt have to come up with something creative right away.”
