This is a show not to miss, friends. Thursday April 3rd at the Chapel! It will actually be the first show I attend there. Will be heading there directly from Conspiracy of Venus practice!
Changing it up, this will be Sean's first solo show in a long time, his first show with men's choir Conspiracy of Beards, and his first show at the Chapel! Sean is going to tour a bunch solo this spring, so look out for those dates and locations at http://seanhayesmusic.com or http://facebook.com/seanhayesmusic
"If there were a map of Sean Hayes’ 20-plus year career, it would be circuitous. A tangled criss-crossing of backroads and blue highways denoting place, influence, and trajectory. You can hear it in the deep-roots syncopation, in the dusty folk-stomp and in the biorhythmic pulse that ebbs and thumps throughout his music."
"Well dressed in suits, ties, and the occasional fedora, Conspiracy of Beards bring an energized live choral music experience out of the churches and tabernacles and into the taverns, art houses, and theaters of the Bay Area and beyond. Transforming Cohen’s lyrics and simple melodies into complex 4- and 5-part harmonies, Conspiracy of Beards achieves a sound that is both robust and tender. With influences ranging from jazz and gospel, to barbershop and doo-wop, the unique arrangements that choir members create capture all of the emotion and humor of Leonard Cohen’s original music, and inspire audiences to ponder common human experiences like romance, heartbreak, politics, sex, longing, and spirituality."
