The Michael Rambo Project has been making music in Eau Claire for a long time now, with catchy pop covers, old soul standards, and some infectious Rambo originals. But for his next upcoming gig on Sept. 12 at Peace Church, Rambo is teaming up with local filmmaker Alex Kolb of San Marco Entertainment and going no holds barred on the show, making it an all-out production. Called “Smashing Ideals – The TV Special,” the two-hour show will feature Rambo and his band playing live intercut with pre-recorded interviews and film snippets, all illustrating the “emptiness of pop culture ideals.” Additionally, some local graphic artists will have their art – which has been creatively paired with the music – projected during the show. Then in October, the video of the show will hit the Internet. Rambo and Kolb have been working steadily on this one show for the better part of four months, and they’ve launched a GoFundMe page to defray some of the production costs.
