Marina Orchestra
Marina Orchestra
What Marina Orchestra has aimed to accomplish isn’t any secret. In fact, they’ve been boasting about it since their beginnings in 2010. It’s the simple idea of bringing people together through music and dance. And without any underlying notion of irony or cynicism, you can feel good about what you’re letting loose to, so stop trying to fight it!
Marina Orchestra is Inspired by music from all over the world, and there is an inherent jubilance that the sun-soaked eleven piece group radiates. It’s exotic, yet familiar. It’s a love of global music filtered through the ears of “indie rock” kids. It’s ripe with homages and a well rounded respect for the whole history of music. But mostly it’s a party.
Conception of the project came when Justin Powers of Knoxville, Tennessee was completely done with listening to navel gazers and decided to shake things up. There was an entire world of blaring brass instruments, dancing back up singers and wild handed percussionists that he longed to see on stage every night. Soon enough the ever expanding Marina Orchestra was quickly finding a way into everyone's schedule. “The only reason I do this, is to look up and see the whole room dancing,” says Powers, “That’s all that I need.”
Pet Peeve
Pet Peeve
PET PEEVE is a Carpathian rock band with a wide range of influences including klezmer, gypsy, rock and folk. The band formed in 2007 with singer Lorian Toth, drummer Ryan Flanagan, violinist Mark Adkison and Dan Rogers on bass. Since its formation PET PEEVE has performed at numerous venues, parties, weddings, inside living rooms and kitchens, on rooftops and porches. In 2010 PET PEEVE released their first album, An Attic Abroad. After a short hiatus in 2012, PET PEEVE reincarnated with a fresh lineup, picking up where they left off and continue to captivate and move audiences to dance with their fiery and leg slapping melodies. The band's second album, Broken English, is currently in the works and expected to be released later this year.
