A Journey To Funktopia Featuring Original Music From The Upcoming Album Yes Love Music

Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore

Are you ready?

Although Jonathan Gilmore began his professional music career providing support vocals for major national acts, he always knew he would need his own band to deliver the special brand of music he wanted to bring to the world. When he left background singing to pursue his own musical career, Jonathan knew a collective capable of delivering a big, beautiful, soulful sound would be an absolute necessity. He needed musicians and support vocalists who could match his power and prowess on stage. Fortunately for him, numerous sold-out performances throughout Baltimore over the past five years have not only built him a strongly supportive fan base, but has also allowed him to pull together a core group of musical creatives to help him deliver his passionate, energetic, soul-filled performances. The end result is The Jonathan Gilmore Project (The JGP). The JGP will be premiering original music from the soon-to-be-released album, “Yes Love Music.”

Monster World: Zoo Quest - With Music by The Jonathan Gilmore Project

 —  —

The Maryland Zoo, Baltimore

In the dark places of the world, elusive and frightening creatures make their homes untouched by the ever-expanding influence of mankind. Drawn forth by the lure of Epic Partying, the veil has now been lifted on these secretive beasts, and there is much they can teach us, for they represent the last sliver of mystery from the Old World. But beware, there are those that would seek to destroy what they represent. Prepare yourself, for here there be monsters.

Join the Baltimore Rock Opera Society for Monster World: Zoo Quest! A new interactive Halloween theater experience at The Maryland Zoo. Follow our guides on foot and by shuttle into the gloomy jungle to experience the horrifying monstrosities from BROS past in their natural habitats such as the grotesque Wooly Bully, the majestic Hippogriff, and the deadly Nog Tree on an immersive tour, but monsters come in many forms, and there are other dangers in the deep jungle...

We'll bring these monsters out into the light with something they can't resist: an excellent Halloween party! From 5 PM - 10 PM all attendees will get to rage at The Waterfowl Pavilion and enjoy drinks, carnival games, a costume contest, and a photobooth all overseen by our host and DJ Landis Expandis. The amazing soul, funk & rock 'n roll powerhouse The Jonathan Gilmore Project will headline the party stage on both nights. Baltimore's party rock/metal/punk anthem band Cowabunga Pizza Time will open on 10/28. Post-punk & no-wave dance band PLRLS will open on 10/29.

Our expeditions into the wild will take place throughout the evening in small groups of 10-14 people. Each trip will leave from and return to the party and involve a walking portion and a trip on the Maryland Zoo shuttle and take approximately 40 minutes. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the weirdest creatures on Earth!

To accommodate all adventurers, we are offering several ticketing options, including a VIP ticket upgrade that includes access to a special lounge area and exclusive swag bag:

Full Zoo Quest Experience (party + quest + 2 drink tickets): $60

VIP Upgrade (party + quest + 2 drink tickets + goodie bag and access to VIP area): $15

Party Only (access to party + 1 drink ticket, but no quest): $25

BROS Rock Operative members will enjoy a 50% discount on the Full Experience ticket. Monster World: Zoo Quest is part of our fundraising efforts and all ticket sales and donations will be used to sustain our operations through 2021.

For those venturing into the wilds on our Zoo Quest, there will be several departure groups and times, so make sure you pick carefully! Please be sure to arrive at the party at least 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled departure time to ensure you do not miss your quest! We cannot guarantee that groups will be able to quest together but those who arrive at the quest gate early will have a better chance of questing with their group.

This is above all a Halloween party, and we will be having a costume contest, so by all means wear one!

Beer/Wine vendors to be announced.

Rock Opera 101: Part Three - Into The Future - Resist!

This is the final show in the 3-part series. Jonathan Gilmore, his killer background vocalists and his amazing band will take you on a musical journey that reflects the times and looks to the future to see what it could hold for the world, especially for Black people and other people of color. The show will be streamed live at www.facebook.com/baltimorerockoperasociety/live

Rock Opera 101: Part Two - Onto The Stage

Rock Opera 101: Part One - American Music

Streaming online on Facbook

Join The Baltimore Rock Opera Society for Rock Opera 101, a three-part online concert series curated by and starring powerhouse vocalist Jonathan Gilmore.

Over the course of three live-streamed concerts, a stage of jaw-droppingly talented local musicians and singers led by Gilmore will give high-energy performances of a variety of songs from the Black musicians who created American music, leading up to the birth of rock opera and taking the audience into the future of the genre. African rhythms, blues, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, country, R&B, rock n' roll, concept albums, and musical theater classics will be featured. We’ll discuss the roots of American music in the Black community and explore how the evolution of the craft led to and continues to influence rock musical theater.

The first installment, titled American Music, streams live on July 1st, just in time for our country’s birthday. Gilmore will lead us through a visual and musical inspection of important questions like “Who owns American music? Who owns rock and roll? How did the erasure of black people from its history take place?”

On Thursday, August 13th - Onto the Stage, will delve into the creation of rock musical theater and its influences.

On Thursday, September 10th - Into The Future will examine current trends and extrapolate a future for rock musical theater. We look at contributions from LGBTQ creators, Latinx creators, and other non-White groups who are finding their voice in rock opera.

We hope that you will accompany us on this journey through rock history! Check out the shows on the BROS Facebook page – www.facebook.com/baltimorerockoperasociety.
