"The Exxperience" Tour begins with a sold out show at the lengendary Sokol Auditorium

After months of build up and anticipation, the 31st of March 2017 had arrived and the show began promptly at 9pm.  As the curtains opened it was apparent that both the upper and lower level was full and that standing room only would be a reality for many on goers but not a soul left until the final note was played hours later to a standing applause.  Promoter and sound and lighting director, Jay Wilcher Sr, created a complimentary atmosphere that blended seamlessly with Big Wade and The Black Swan Theory's unique take on soul, jazz, r&b and funk.  "The Exxperience" album is now available everywhere music is sold or streamed and the documentary of the same name will be premiering in theaters April 26th at The Alamo Drafthouse.  Buy your tickets today and watch the trailer!

Special thanks to Jay Wilcher, Drew Brookins, Julie Baker, Felicia Webster and Ed Archibald.
