Rock for Honduras – And this Friday at teneleven

This past Saturday, one of the bands I play cello in, Colorform, performed in Hoboken, New Jersey with “Rock for Honduras“.

Colorform

The event was attended by great people who graciously raised a bunch of money for the Esmirna School for the Deaf  in San Pedro Sula.


Colorform consists of female vocals, cello, guitars, percussion, bass, and a visual artist who improvises an entire work of art on a blank canvas as the music plays.

Our shows are always a unique experience, but this day was particularly special.  The venue, Willie McBride’s, has excellent sound (thanks Matt!) and a great warm vibe.  (A characteristic, btw, which is much more rife in Hoboken than across the river in Manhattan)

The best part, though, was our impromptu “encore” on the sidewalk outside!

We play again this Friday!

The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep.
