Black Mountain Symphony from Albany, NY return to The Riverboat Bar with their eclectic mix of rock n roll
"Many CD's will claim to defy a specific genre label, but Black Mountain Symphony's redefines eclectic here. The music combines synthesized rock grooves with classic jazz rhythms and you don't have to listen too closely to hear Americana and bluegrass elements here either. Evidence of the rich diverse nature is found on their CD baby page, where in addition to samples of their eleven original songs you'll find the music recommended to both fans of the sounds of Fleetwood Mac and Yes. Enough said." -Arthur Gonick (Pulse, Saratoga Today)
Black Mountain Symphony showcases an eclectic range of influences, blended together to create their own special sound. From baroque classical violin and haunting folk-tinged ballads to funk-rock drums and hard-hitting dance numbers, the six-piece band sprinkles their live sets with hints of everything from classical music to bits of Motown, blues and jazz.
Whether touring nationally or performing at their favorite local digs, this up-and-coming group of young musicians features a roundtable of powerful lead vocals and harmonies that dance with captivating violin lines and soar over stunning soundscapes, shaped by years of classical training infused with an irresistible love for musical roots and a fresh, ultramodern mentality.
Evocative of such artists as Fleetwood Mac, The Corrs, Yes, Belle & Sebastian, Damien Rice, Guster and The Dave Matthews Band, the group implements the same skill and vision on cover tunes as they do in their own carefully crafted compositions, and in the process manage to capture something unique and refreshing... This is Black Mountain Symphony.
*Black Mountain Symphony performs both intimate acoustic shows as well as intense, full-band rock shows.
