Tuesday, August 30, 2011Tuesday: National Toasted Marshmallow Day, Art House, Softball Registration at 9:31 AM
Last night at Mojo's Caffe Gallery, I was able to say hi to the owner friendly Ron and see some of the most talented people in the Ogden area do what they do best, play some sweet tunes.
I got there after class so I was only able to see Christopher Cullen & Candid Coyote to begin with, but they were extremely chill and fun to watch.
Up next was The Old World, who's talent never ceases to amaze me. I'm not going to lie, I've known these guys for awhile and I've seen them play a few times. But let me give you some information on them to prove why I keep coming back for more. Austin Frodsham who plays bass, fiddle, mandolin, and vox, was like the fiddling champion of Utah when we went to high school. I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong, but the kid is a big deal. If you want true musicality, this is your band. Casey Romney has fantastic voice and Stratton McCauseland is a very talented pianist, whom I've heard play solo before and was blown away by.
Marny Proudfit's voice makes the world go 'round. Everyone needs to hear the sweet crooning she possesses. There should be a record of her voice in every home. No joke.
Then Matt The Electrician came onstage and pretty much blew everyone away. From Austin, Texas, most of his songs revolve around his 21-year relationship with his wife and his 7-year-old son. He teases that this may be unrelateable to some, but his music is extremely raw and reachable, making it especially wonderful to listen to. Think Iron & Wine, but with more passion. I'm not joking.
Sorry to all the bands I missed out on, if you were playing with the likes of these above, I'm sure you were amazingly talented.
