Video: January "Wellesley Rocks the Library"
1) LADIES FIRST, 2) INCHORDINATION, and
3) GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE
John Robertson "Coronavirus Blues"
Brad Neighbors of "Umami" crushes the 4-box! 17 separate audio/video tracks were assembled for this video including drums, backing vocals... have mercy!
The Walton family's second submission - inside and outside, hangin' with the fam, doin' some serious B-side Elton John.
Bob Bua (aka "Ripcord!") turns a Green Day song into a Quarantine anthem. "Wake me up when Covid-19 ends...."
CALLING ALL WELLESLEY MUSICIANS - Let's use this quarantine time to create and share some... "Quaran-tunes"! Play your piano, sing a karaoke track, pluck a uke.... Send your video to email@example.com - we'll post the videos below ALL MONTH LONG as they roll in, so make some noise!
SEVENTEEN (17!) "Quaran-tunes" so far:
Jim Johnson of The Meanees with his second submission of the series!
Mike Kim, Brad Neighbors, and Liz Larson of "Umami" combine for this video of an original tune by Mike re: Boston Marathon.
Patrick Hayden of "Bigfoot" and "Connect 4" co-runs (w/ Dr. Shira Doron) the Library music series and this site. Dude, learn the lyrics....
Rod Wright of "Bigfoot" adapts a blues song about the Quarantine with the words we've all been asking ourselves: "How long do I have to wait?"
Jadon Czerniach of "Screaming Sushi" gets all 4-box for some Mission Impossible mojo! Cellos rule.
Jim Johnson of "The Meanees" opts for piano (yes, he usually plays bass - showoff! ;) for this interpretation of his favorite Killers tune:
Anna Tellalian (WHS Senior > BU!) is a member of the acapella group "Ladies First", and crushes this series' 2nd Carpenters song!
"Wellesley Rocks the Library" is a monthly live music series for adults and students! FINALLY, a local venue for us to boogie. Two events completed (videos below). The March and April events were cancelled but we will resume in May! (we hope?)
Haig Tellalian of "Grounds for Divorce" gets his "country" on! (His horse is out of the frame, but its there....)
Mike Kim & Liz Larsen of R&B band "Umami" sometimes wear shades inside and do sick multi-track overdub videos (respect!):
Rick Wilson does some Elton John! He's in Wellesley-based band "Ghosts in the Machine" with Ludvig Soderling and Patrick Kent:
April 21, 2020
Nick Fauza (WHS Junior) - his band "American Ink" has published a few albums (Spotify). Cuz, who hasn't by that age?
Mark Stepakoff hosts the open-mic series at TCAN. Check out his hilarious song "Kitty is a Cougar" on Spotify (many albums on Spotify).
Tino DeLollis of "Grounds for Divorce" and "Connect 4" plays a song by Herman's Hermits, also played by the Carpenters.
The Walton family does Bob Marley, led by Dave Walton of "Million Dollar Day" fame. Don't MESS with their firewood:
