Described by “Rolling Stone” magazine’s David Fricke as “a quartet with a rich line in acoustic textures and chamber-rock dynamics,” the group Darlingside is making it’s way to Kansas City and Mediamikes would like to send one lucky reader and a guest to their November 8th show at the Record Bar.
All you need to do is let us know what group you wish you could have seen live. Wish you could have been around to see the Beatles? How about Queen? Or is there a band out there now that you’re dying to see. Let us know below. One random entry will be chosen and that person will win (2) tickets to see Darlingside. This contest ends on Wednesday, November 5. Winner will be notified by email. Good luck!
With four distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, Darlingside effortlessly draw audiences into their lush musical world. The band’s sound, characterized by classical strings, tight vocal arrangements, bluegrass and rock instrumentation and smart lyricism, is the product of complete collaboration among the four close friends. The group has no frontman; instead, lead vocals are traded from moment to moment, and each song features a new combination of instruments and textures, pulling heavily from folk, retro-pop, barbershop, and chamber music.
Dave (bassist and former street musician), Don (guitarist, banjoist, and former boy alto), Auyon (classical violinist who studied mandolin in Ireland and Brazil) and Harris (classical cellist and guitarist) met and sang together as students at Williams College. Together, they are “a powerhouse of vocal, instrumental, and performing talent,” and their expansive sound is “astonishingly more congruent than the sum of its parts.”
Darlingside’s collaborative work with fellow Massachusetts-native Heather Maloney, which culminated in the 2014 Signature Sounds release “Woodstock,” garnered attention from both “The New York Times” and “The Boston Globe.” This past summer the band stepped onto the national stage with appearances at High Sierra in Quincy, CA, Sisters Folk Festival in Sisters, OR, and Four Corners Folk in Pagosa Springs, CO.
