“Live music beats canned music any day of the week, no matter what.” I overheard this comment recently, and have to say that it resonated in my mind. We’ve been honored to work with many musicians, and in several different capacities. It’s the best – the slight unpredictability, the crisp sounds coming from a variety of instruments, and the energy musicians provide is unparalleled. Of course, canned music has its benefits as well (like when you hear a specific song that grabs your pulse, and you absolutely have to dance to it, and only it)…all in all, I think there’s simply a time and a place for both.
This past weekend at the Madison Theater, we had the pleasure of performing to both. We danced our tightly knit choreographies (interspersed with one tribal improvisational number), and were also invited to perform to the live music of Crazy Legs (the headlining band) as well. What a blast! We enjoyed the best of both worlds in one fell swoop.
Dante’s is working on putting together a band specifically for our shows, so stay tuned as we begin this new adventure. And please wish us luck! If you’re a Cincinnati musician who’s interested, contact us!
