Changelings violinist to play this Friday in Mobile, AL [21 Feb 2008|12:12pm]

This weekend is The Ghosts Project, violin, drums, and bass from Atlanta. These three extraordinary musicians with such training and mastery over their instruments is rarely seen at a live local show. The sound ranges from Downtempo/Dub which incorporates loops and echo effects to excited modes from Africa and the Middle East. This group exudes a sensual energy with all the power of an orchestra and the energy between them and the crowd draws you in (instead of pushing away, as the volume and abrasiveness of so many bands does...)

If you have been waiting for the live music experience, the change-your-life religious experience that you know is possible, yet never seems to materialize, this is your show.

Paul Mercer has an international fanbase as a solo violinist and with one of his many projects, the Changelings; He has just completed a string of sold-out theater dates on the West Coast. This show will draw fans from New Orleans and Florida and other cities within driving distance of Mobile. If you're tired of the same crowd, this your chance to find those new faces from not-quite-so-far-away.

We are all in this scene together; this is a team effort on behalf of we who are trying to bring in eclectic acts and the audience that will participate in these "thinking-outside-the-box" events. I know we all want a constant stream of well-organized shows and unexpectadly-great performers, and things are going very well. We are lucky that things are on such an upturn in this town...

So it is with complete respect for the entire scene that I say this-- The Ghosts Project will be unlike any other show you will see here. There will be the drinking crowd and the party will be in effect, but if you are a fan of music, this is a higher form of art. This is a band that you watch and think "why are they playing here, shouldn't they be..."

Changelings [18 Jun 2004|08:30pm]


Good to see a group dedicated to the wonderful Changelings!

I'm quite the admirer of their music and I actually had the privilege of booking them for a live show at my club night a few years ago.They are truely wonderful people as well as musicians and I probably can't say enough good things about them.

Hrmmm...wonder if I should tell the tale of my night in the graveyard post-show with the Changelings?

It was quite fun ;D

Regardless,hope to see more activity here....

hammer dulcimer [14 May 2004|11:54am]

[ mood | artistic ]

Those things are cool as hell. They had something to do with the invention of the piano too. The ones I have seen look rather like a very large zither (sort of an autoharp without the key bars)instead of the teardrop or hourglass shape of dowel played, fretted "mountain" dulcimers...and you play it with these little round headed mallets like a xylophon...though the classical ones are played with this thing that looks like a violin bow with a piano hammer at the end. Reg has a little solo in the middle of "Caterwaul" on one:-)
