A couple of days ago, Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps played her first show of the new year, and she's definitely made a few resolutions.
This was our first performance in a rearranged format, and we rehearsed a few tunes for the occasion. The group included:
Corey Murphy, trombone
Brian Grimm, pipa/cello
Pat Reinholz, electric cello
Abe Sorber, vibraphone
Mike Koszewski, drums
Anna Weisling, video
We played a couple of my compositions, one of Corey's and a new tune of Brian's. We hope to continue working on these pieces, and develop some more, and make a good recording in the coming months. Also coming soon: more shows!
Here's a video that Tom Teslik took of us playing my piece, To Thicken The Plot:
Because it can be confusing what Lovely Socialite is without that dastardly thing called web presence, we have a handy new WEBSITE now!
Also on the bill that evening was the effervescent ASUMAYA, a one-man operation that involves the intricate weaving of electric bass, drums, african percussion, and conscientious vocals. Check out his record HERE; it's really great.
I send emails occasionally about upcoming performances. They're very cordial.
