Some updates from the past few months! It's been a whirlwind...
Here is a post from Chanticleer's blog, regarding some awesome concerts I got to play with them back in June:
Russian Program, With Percussion, Near Battle Ready
"There’s a lot to recommend the all Russian program Elena Sharkova has made for us. In addition to a few things which will be familiar there are also some rarities including soldier songs from the Napoleonic campaign in which we are joined by percussionist Mckenzie Camp (a recent grad of the SF Conservatory of Music) helping us to be more martial."
Also, a blog review of the Wild Rumpus concert I was in this September:
Wild Rumpus at Old First Church
"the excellent Mckenzie Camp on percussion whose Mod appearance channeled the 1960s as perfectly as the music"
haha thank you, Michael Strickland!
And lastly, an article about the amazing Bang On A Can Summer Festival this July/August ("utopian residency" is right!) :
Bang On A Can Plays Art, Radiohead, and Wilco
"In a season overflowing with music festivals that seem to merely trade headliners, Bang On a Can's annual Summer Festival offers a "utopian residency" of uncommon contemporary music, with top new players from multiple continents. Best of all, Banglewood (as it is sometimes called) makes all this future music not only supremely enlightening but also a ton of fun. And when Bang On a Can topped off this 13th season with glasses of champagne, the New York-based, downtown-modern collective could toast perhaps their most edifying Summer Festival yet— a balance of the challenging and the sublime with odes to art, death, rock culture, and nine world premieres. ..."
