  • The latest from Red Super Giant

Local saxophonist Andy Masker might be best known for his funky woodwind skills as the frontman in soul/groove ensembles Masker Band and Booty Call, but he reveals a more musically experimental side on new recordings from Red Super Giant, a project conducted with bassist Shawn “Hop” Beckner.

Both Masker and Beckner are natives of Charleston, W. Va. They relocated to the Lowcountry in 2005. Red Super Giant is an electronic duo based on synth and programming. They incorporate original video productions into the live shows as well. Guitarist Colin Madden, drummer Karl Anderson, singer Andrea Cantangay, and turntablist Alex Rosen are among the frequent guest performers on stage.

Red Super Giant released a self-titled 13-song collection earlier this month. They perform at Boone’s Bar & Grill on Sat. Sept. 24.
