8-9pm: Spaghetti Eastern - Instrumental / Rock

images/2017/02/6315.jpg
www.reverbnation.com/spaghettieasternmusic
Can techno-bebop-metal-fired instrumentals co-exist with vocal tunes inspired by the madcap geniuses of ‘60s pop? What if you added ambient soundtracks a la Morricone/Fripp and clavinet-singed funky blues from the P-Funk playbook? Top it off with acoustic ballads where smiley melodies camouflage bitter lyricism about broken love, often rendered in off-beat tunings, and you sorta begin to complete the recipe. They can and do on “Sketches of Spam,” the 16-track, 69-minute, genre-surfing debut release from Spaghetti Eastern Music (Bad Egg Records, 30003), the solo project of New York-based guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Sal Cataldi.

www.facebook.com/Thejustinrothberggroup/
We try to explore a variety of different styles of music. While the group is firmly dedicated to jazz, we try to stay as open minded as possible. Songs are influenced by hiphop, funk, dub reggae, Latin, world music, and anything else the band has been listening to. To keep the music from sounding stiff, everyone tries to trust each other's musical taste. Even though I write all of the tunes, it's still a very open vibe on stage. No matter what song the band is playing, we're always open to experimentation.
