Fire Music Mondays 6/11 Presents
Matthew Daher (Drums) / Michael Malis (Piano) Duo
Creating the space-time continuum in real time; spirit stirring, boundary blurring, eternally recurring free-jazz from the netherworld. The Daher Malis Duo is a collaboration between Matthew Daher and Detroit pianist/improviser Michael Malis. Born and raised in eastside metro Detroit, drummer Matthew Daher and pianist
A trio that features Stuart Lyons, drums, David Dunham, guitar, Jeffry Cuny, bass. The trio began playing together as the rhythm section in the WSU Big Band from 2016-2018, and served as their house rhythm section. Also under the name Jeffry Cuny trio the ensemble plays every Friday at Cliff Bell’s from 5:30pm-8:15pm. As Buffalo Kid the focus is on original music and free improvisation. Influences are rooted in the avant-garde and pull from artists like the Bad Plus, Ornette Coleman, Tim Berne, and Cecil Taylor.
Fire Music Mondays is a biweekly event at everyone’s favorite Hamtramck bar featuring Improvisers, music tinkerers, composers from Detroit and the great beyond. The purpose of this ongoing event is to provide a forum for improvisers to do what they do best as well as promote composed music and host local and out of town acts. Each Monday is different with an ever-expanding and rotating cast of musicians.

Matthew Daher (solo):
“Wisdom To Know The Difference” is an exploration of agency, what it means to control and to let go – spiritually, sonically, and performatively. Live drums triggering electronic happenings – live vocals swimming through emergent textures – improvisation and randomization playing in a song-structured sandbox.
In the year MMXII, they began recording in a church with a moldy ceiling, a moldy basement, and of course a bedroom made out of pews. “Do You Dream?” is an experiment of experimentation and songs coming together. Some might call it “songmentation”. Or even, if you look at it as experimentation + songs augmenting each other you might say “Saugmentation”.
Versatile, genre-bending Detroit producer of hip hop and electronic musics – representing the Video7 crew – fresh off the release of his latest album “That Girl Was A Jewel” – with another release coming soon.

On Juneteenth, teaching artists Marion Hayden (bass), Michelle May (violin), Leslie DeShazor (viola), Michael Malis (keys), and Matt Daher (drums) will perform alongside their students.

About Sugar Hill Arts District:
“In 1941, Ernest White purchased the Gotham Hotel at the corner of John R and Orchestra Place just south of this district. Although the purchase was apparently a case of mistaken racial identity, it set a precedent, and more African-Americans began moving and establishing businesses in the area.
Spectral Slumber is an all night, immersive, BYOBlanket, multimedia, performance-installation experience ft. work by a spectrum of artists and performers. Video projection-collages blend with non-stop live ambient drones, surrounding and enveloping participants in an audiovisual dreamscape to collectively dream to. Performances and installations inspired by dreams, slumber, and surreality abound throughout the space and throughout the night.
Doors 10:30 – 1:30
*Event goes all night, but entry is only permitted before 1:30 or by special arrangement.
