NCM Fathom and Sony Masterworks have brought the four string virtuosos together to perform songs off their collaborative album, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, at the House of Blues® in Boston, which will be broadcast live to theaters nationwide.
Tickets for The Goat Rodeo Sessions LIVE are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom website (theaters and participants are subject to change). The event will be broadcast to more than 430 select movie theaters across the country, which I think is extremely cool on many levels. It is rare for most people to afford to go to a live concert with artists of this calibre. It is even rarer for mainstream population to have access to these artists unless they are in a city where a tour is taking place. This brings the power of live to 430 different venues across the US and the chance to see such talent in this type of collaborative effort is stunning. The music is not for everyone’s tastes. The combination is like a blue-grass, jazz, structured jam session. It is exciting music, with unexpected and intense twists, jumps, and turns. From Sony:
While each artist is a prominent figure in his own music sphere, the group came together as a unified ensemble on a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project. The Goat Rodeo Sessions is an 11-song recording of original compositions that has been dubbed “genre proof” by the group. The music feels both new and familiar – it’s composed and improvised, uptown and down home, funky and pastoral, and above all, uniquely American.
I agree. For a partial sound sample of the released album, here you go. “Attaboy” will have your heart racing, your feet tapping and your head bobbing in about 5 seconds. And “No One But You” will have just have your heart. Great talent and great music. LIVE. Enjoy. At $15/ticket, I know my daughter and I will!
