Birth of a Band

Have you ever wondered about the machinations involved in assembling a band?  What are the circumstances that bring a particular group of musicians together?  How are decisions made with regard to repertoire and the group’s aesthetic vision?  On Thursday, September 25th the CSI Stage Door series invites you to witness the “birth of a band” as five musicians convene for the first time to discuss, rehearse and perform on the stage of the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium.  The audience will be able to watch the creative process in action as Ryan Nielsen (trumpet), Brent Jensen (saxophone), Justin Nielsen (piano), Aaron Miller (bass) and Scott Farkas (percussion) rehearse and perform original compositions.  The quintet will invite those in attendance to participate in an open discussion of the music and ask for help with naming the band.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be present at the inception of a collaborative quintet that combines the talents of music faculty members from CSI (Farkas, Jensen), BYU-Idaho (R. Nielsen, Miller) and the Fresco Academy (J. Nielsen).

The Hot Sardines

Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a salty stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie the whole thing together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman with a voice from another era, and you have the Hot Sardines.  The Sardine sound – hot jazz from Prohibition-Era Bourbon Street to the cabarets of Paris  – is the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Waller used to make: straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. (Literally – the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two members of the rhythm section). They manage to invoke the sounds of a near-century ago and stay resolutely in step with the current age. Even while giving voice to the history-defining jazz of the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s, the Hot Sardines’ vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences. Vanity Fair applauds their “unique repertoire, and a sound and style that are distinctly their own,” and Forbes Magazine calls them “one of the best jazz bands in NYC today.”

Creole Choir of Cuba

Prepare to be blown away: hear the passionate melodies, wild harmonies and richly textured arrangements of these ten inspiring vocalists and you will know this is something new from Cuba, the most original vocal sound to come out of the island in a long while.  The Creole Choir’s Cuban name Desandann means literally ‘descendents’ and with songs like Papa Danbala, Tandé or Liman Casimir they tell the stories of their Haitian ancestors who were brought to Cuba to work in the near slave conditions on the sugar and coffee plantations until the 1959 Revolution.  The Creole Choir is a cornucopia of remarkable voices that perform irresistible a cappella melodies sung in Creole with richly textured harmonies, vibrant dancing, and the shifting Caribbean rhythms of rediscovered musical treasures from Haiti, Dominica, and Cuba.  Multiple award winners, they sing the vital music passed down from grandparents and parents as well as the songs of some of the foremost groups of contemporary Haitian scene.  From laments to protest songs permeated by the homesickness of exile and the eternal dream of returning ‘home’, to ritual prayers and celebratory freedom dances, each song tells a powerful Haitian story kept alive in Cuba.

Grupo Fantasma

Grupo Fantasma has been praised as one of the most important independent acts in the Latin genre and has continually defied expectations to create one of the most unique musical voices to come out of the United States in the last decade.   In 2011 they garnered further acclaim by winning a Grammy (their second such nomination) for their self-produced release El Existential on Nat Geo Music which the Wall Street Journal called “Latin music both new and traditional…vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification.”  Grupo Fantasma has also seen a wide array of film and TV placements including AMC’s Breaking Bad, the John Sayles’ film Casa de los Babys, Showtime’s hit series Weeds, ABC’s Ugly Betty, NBC’s Law & Order and many others. They have served as the backing band on several occasions for the legendary Prince and recorded with Maceo Parker, Sheila-E, cult-hero Daniel Johnston and many others.  The band’s incendiary live show, declared by NPR as “seamless whenever and wherever they’re on stage” has brought the band to major festivals and venues internationally, and their diverse spectrum of rabid and devoted fans speaks to the ensemble’s universal appeal beyond just Latin or world music fans.  Tickets:  $24/adults or $10/children high school and under
