Yes... the largest cello rock band in America is coming to Studio City.
We all know that jazz has its basses, well, stick a bow on it and play "Johnny Be Good."
I know, I know -- I'm not a total musical instrument illiterate - the cello is different from the bass... but you have to admit, they're both tall and cumbersome when traveling on a bus or subway.
Although it's traditionally a classical music instrument, 12 classically trained cellists from Yale decided to take a detour from Bach, Beethoven and Brahms and try a little Beatles... and the Eagles and maybe a little Johnny Cash ... by arranging classic rock, pop, metal and blues tunes exclusively for the cello.
They call themselves "Low Strung."
But they don't play music just for Baby Boomers. Founded in 2004, the group is constantly changing its repertoire to include not only music from the 60's.... but music from the 21st century. From The Who and Led Zeppelin to Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons. They mix Bach with Amy Winehouse, and Beethoven with The Eagles. Something old - something new. A little bit classical - a little bit rock'n'roll. Music for Baby Boomers and their off-spring and their off-springs' off-springs.
Here's a little musical sample:
(Their version of "Hotel California" is my personal favorite)
Simply said: They rock!
