Muppet's Titanium Stardust Machins
Welcome to the newest incarnation of Titanium Stardust Machine. This group has always been a musical vessel led by Nick Merena. In the early versions of the band , the lineup would be an ever evolving crew of players. You would never see the same band twice.
Todd Troutman (The Big DIrty, Knitebitch) would join on many of our early excursions. We would also be joined by Kyle Morgan and sometimes his old band 'The Backroad' (Will Markley, Al Smith) would immerse themselves into TSM.
Sets would consist of pure improvisation. After a while the band became the Cosmic Jukebox. Rather than just play a free jazz set of music , the band would tackle entire albums and turn them into new, fresh versions.
Performances of The Beatles 'Revolver' and Neil Youngs "On the Beach" occurred at many venues such as The Whole Cannoli, HMAC, The Depot, JIbberjazz festivals, and Sunshine Daydream music park.
Shortly after those performances the band solidified into the trio consisting of Muppet, Bobby Scorey & Fares Houssein (whom Muppet met while they played in Woody Browns Project)
This band played many Grateful Acres Productions shows in their early days as well as The Abby Bar, The River Street Jazz Cafe and various Jibberjazz Festivals.
