For a fresh take on the meaning of life through the portal of music, Frank Simes (Musical director for THE WHO) will be giving an introduction to the Meta-Musical Field, the fundamental fiber of the universe, which redefines spirituality through music and science.
Frank Simes shows, through various fields of science as well as his personal experience, that music is not only a universal language but the interface of communication in a creative universe.
Easter Sunday April 21, at 7:30pm at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks

Poet Jane Hirschfeld says poems "let us know . . . that we are not alone—but they also unseat us and make us more susceptible, larger, elastic. They foment revolutions of awareness and allow the complex, uncertain, actual world to enter." In this regard, Frank Simes is a poet as well as legendary musician, scholar and humanist. The spirit of his presence , his complex ideas about the music of the universe operating through our bodies and souls and his own life opened us to experience ourselves as part of the universe’s inherent creativity, and by so doing, experience ourselves and the world differently. He generously shared his life throughout the fascinating information on music and physics, science and medicine, and it is hard to imagine anyone’s experience of his talk not opening the listener to the possibilities that allowing our creativity to operate in each moment will bring to one’s life.

Fantastic show! Frank Simes discusses how music relates to the universe. A must see for any musician, and intriguing for any non-musician. He also incorporates his background, playing with everyone from Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger, to The Motels and MANY more. He also incorporates playing guitar and personal stories of growing up and how he started his musical journey.

Frank Simes' introduction to the Meta-Musical field is an entertaining, thoughtful, and inspiring show that keeps the audience on its toes from beginning to end. Frank brilliantly combines a meaningful scientific discussion with fun and insightful antidotes of his life in the music business, interwoven with music performed as only Frank can perform it. I left the show truly fascinated and reminded that music is in all of us, and we can give back to the universe by creating music as a lasting a lasting piece of art. I'm looking forward to more of The Big Strum Theory and can't wait for the next show!

This is a weird and wonderful lecture on the connection between science and music and spirituality. There's an awful lot of science in this, some proven and long understood and some theoretical of course, but it all makes so much sense. Like being reminded of something you all ready know, deep in your DNA…amazing.

Entertaining, intriguing and inspiring. For me, the show's beauty lies in an underlying message pertinent to everyone, not just those who are blessed with musical talent. Whatever it is that we do, doing it with passion opens a path to rapture. Coolest thing about Frank's performance in The Big Strum Theory? Its potential to bring out the creative “maestro” in all of us who consciously strive to make a positive impact on our world.

The performance was a fun, thought provoking, interactive discussion of the power of music. I was glad my young musical son had the opportunity to attend. We all left very inspired to learn and play more music. The idea that music can help us be better more humane beings is well worth exploring. Frank has a great performance and personal story of his journey in rock and roll. I can't wait to see the show expand into the full immersion format. Well Done!

Frank Simes is a very interesting and passionate guide to an inspirational journey that he took his audience on. Even though Frank is a talented genius, he reminds us that everyone has the ability to be creative. I believe the show reminds the audience to live a creative life and thus become more at one with the universe.
