about

Van Sutra originally started as a 2 piece band consisting of Julius Masri on drums and George Draguns on guitar. It was along the same vein of Flying Sutra, A band that consisted of Bob Cozzolino on percussion and George Draguns on guitar. Naturally music that comes from the future is ignored and slowly killed by the forces of de-evolution. Flying Sutra officially died when Bob moved to Minnesota. He is sorely missed. Picking up seamlessly from maestro Bob is Julius Masri. He's a hairy music angel from Beirut. Added later is the wizard Kyle Press. He was asked to join Van Sutra after George played with him in the Spectrum-a free-improv experiment. Kyle sings sounds, Kyle blows the saxophone, Kyle's the best! Add now Samantha Katz, 4 strings but deeply troubled. Sadly, creativity comes a hard price sometimes and she was lost to the Philadelphia opioid crisis. She could really play. so sad. And George Draguns plays guitar.
All these cats can't swing, but they have played with:
Don Caballero, Storm and Stress, Form and Mess, Nick Millevoi, The Arkestra, Impressionist, Jamaladeen Tacuma, and other adventurous musicians.

about

Form and Mess New York

Form and Mess is the reunion of Kevin Shea and George Draguns a rhythm section. 20+ years ago, George and Kevin were the original rhythm section of Storm and Stress. Nick Millevoi on guitar makes this three piece unit a highly tense, highly competent electrical storm of sound. This is music played by marginalized musicians for other marginalized musicians.
