Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute
Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute
If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 8-piece Talking Heads cover have come from psychedelia-funk, NYC underground spoof bands, worldbeat jam, head-banging punk and from onstage with Frank Zappa's band members to bring to stage a "once in a lifetime" experience. A rockin', funkin', danceable celebration of the new-wave punk we loved from the 80's with frontman Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne - suit too big and all.
The Insidious Rays
The Insidious Rays are a rock band that spans multiple styles of music. Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, The Insidious Rays have been performing since Jan 2001. Originally a 4-track recording project of singer/guitarist Matt Juknevic, the Rays took form as a 3 piece band with Jon Braun on drums and Michael Davidson on bass. Since their inception, the Rays evolved into a 5-piece band. They have released three full-length albums; "More Songs About Death, Love, Sex and Death" (2003), "Exotic Handshakes" (2005) and a retrospective of previously unreleased material called "Volume One And Two" (2016). Their explosive live performances have received acclaim from audiences of all demographics, and attracted the attention of producer Andrew Weiss (Ween, Rollins Band, Butthole Surfers, Yoko Ono, and Grammy winners Café Tacuba). Weiss engineered and produced the album, Exotic Handshakes. The Insidious Rays are: Matt Juknevic (vocals/guitar), Jon Braun (drums/vocals), Michael Davidson (guitar), Seth Juknevic (bass) and Chris McDermott (guitar and keys).
