I’ve been sitting in with two groups recently, having a lot of fun. One is AJP. Alexander makes simple, solid rock songs. The tunes are fun to play, and harmony vocals + cello make take them to the next level, I do believe. At my first show with them last week we covered “Sound of Silence”. Cello like candy.
The other band is The Paver. They’re awesome. The music is loud, crunchy and a little complicated. 4/4 is few and far between. It’s great for me, since my default cello mode is not “rhythm-oriented” per se. Bass/Vocal, Violin/Keys/Vocal, Drums, Cello. Stay tuned for a show in January.
