I am proud to announce my next show!! Fellow pianist Avi Wisnia and I have accepted an invitation to perform our music at the OutCentral LGBT Community Center in Nashville, TN on Sunday, May 10, 2015. I will be performing my brand of melodic and lush set of tunes with the talented guitarist Andrew Weitze. Philadelphia-based pianist/singer/songwriter Avi Wisnia will play a set of his very sweet and pretty Bossa Nova-inspired music. (You can hear his music and check out his tour dates at www.aviwisnia.com)
Doors will be open by 6:30p, and the show will start promptly at 7:00 PM.
In lieu of a cover charge, donations for the performers and Outcentral will be gladly accepted.

There will be more details to come. Here is all that you need to know . . .

On Saturday, February 7, Gordon Roqué will be one of the artists participating in the inaugural Modular Art Pod exhibit during the February 2015 Arts and Music Showcase at Wedgewood/Fort Houston, home of Nashville, Tennessee’s creative working class.
Modular Art Pods (or MAPs) is an open source, multi-disciplinary, collaborative “art tunnel.” Attendees crawl through a series of individually-curated, 4′ cubed micro art galleries. The intimacy of the space (each cube a single-person occupancy) forces the attendees to confront the art solo, away from the distractions of traditional art openings. A special behind-the-scenes backlot tour is available for those unable to crawl through. Attendees can choose to go through the tunnel or around it, but not both.
MAPs is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike, so any group can host an event, any place, any time. The inaugural show will take place at abrasiveMedia in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, February 7th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston event. Visit the official Modular Art Pod website HERE.
Gordon Roqué will be presenting a theatrical story within an Modular Art Pod entitled “The Luminous Music Box” in which he will be performing live music. His art pod will be the final destination at the end of this collaborative art tunnel.
