Zonder Kennedy to Perform at Record Breaker Closing Party at Orphic Gallery on June 29th

Zonder Kennedy by Greg Frederick (Vinyl Records on Canvas)

Blues guitarist extraordinaire Zonder Kennedy of Hamden and New York City will perform with his band The Scoville  Junkies at the closing of Greg Frederick’s outstanding Record Breaker exhibit at the Orphic Gallery in Roxbury on Saturday, June 29th from 4-7 pm.  It is only fitting that Zonder should play at the closing since it was through the commissioning of a portrait of him by his wife Lata and her cogent suggestion to gallery proprietor Phil Lenihan that the Orphic invited Greg Frederick to mount his show at the gallery.

The Record Breaker show is a genuine tour de force consisting of portraits of musical luminaries from Frank Sinatra to Notorious B.I.G., all composed of recycled vinyl LPs and 45s.  Most extraordinary are the large scale works – 4' x 4' images of The Ramones, Rolling Stones and Michael Jackson – which Greg is showing for the first time in Roxbury.  Along with the other fifty works in the exhibit, Record Breaker is a panorama of iconic images from the rock/pop pantheon exquisitely rendered in vinyl with backgrounds of LP sleeves, newspaper articles or simply painted surfaces.

Record Breaker will be up at the Orphic Gallery at the corner of Main and Bridge Streets in Roxbury until June 30th and truly must be seen in person to be believed.
