Punch Brothers (no relation) - A Musical Interlude. 6/24/12

Sunday Morning.
It is raining here in South Florida.
We are lookin' for upwards of 6" of God's rising tide.
But we can hold it all. Bring it.
 (well except for the damn leak, I meant to fix last year.
Damnit to hell, but hey, it's only once a year.

Now,
I would suggest setting down with a cup of your choice and
just hear these cats (they used to say 'gone cats' back in the day).
They are playing J. S. Bach! Note for Note!!
(He is a Famous Dead Guy!)

These gone cats
are full on.
(just my opinion, i could be wrong)

  1. Classical music isn't my cup of tea (not that I ever drink tea), but these gone cats have the chops to handle any genre they choose to try. I listened to a few more songs before making this comment. I wish the sound had been better on the vid with Paul Simon/The Boxer, but they still do a much better job on it than I do ;-)

    1. I listened to 'The Boxer' even with the bad recording the music came through. Thank you.

  2. I saw the Punch Brothers earlier this year and I'd go see them all over again, even if y'all aren't related! Heck, I'd adopt them so they could be related to me...

  3. Ditto Intelli. Punch Bros. headed by Chris Thiele, virtuoso mandolinist. You will never find better musicians.

    1. BTW... been watching (hearing) Chris since he was about 17yrs old and playing with the big boys at Merlefest. For years with Nickle Creek and now on his own. I've seen these guys twice and would go every day if I could.

  4. Music is music, why shouldn't a bluegrass band play Bach (and do so really well)? A few years ago, I heard a classically trained violinist play "Dueling Banjos" on PBS. What fun!

    Welcome back to Florida. Stay safe from tornadoes (I heard there were some warnings today down your way).

    I guess you didn't get a chance to stop in Munich for the Spencer Tunick picture: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/nudes-kick-german-opera-season-spencer-tunick-installation-article-1.1101213.

  5. This is one of my favorites and definitely to the note. Good one, cat!

    May all of your Martinis be dry.

  6. Probably one of the best concerto's if not the best concerto for strings ever written. First I'd ever heard with gutar and mandolin though and I did love it. It is the music after all and the performance. Now you have me thinking about a tub bass in there.

    1. The tub bass would be the cat's meow.
