You Discovered Canasta Hear @FreioMusic
Canasta, from Chicago, Illinois, could be he next big pop band out if Chi town! Their music is moving, and the band is tightly knit together. It is not as if we are the first to notice this talent,
Best of Chicago 2010… loaded with intricate yet accessible orchestral pop music— Huffington Post. I asked Elizabeth (vocals/violin/percussion) about the
direction of the band and what they strive for, and her articulate reply is as follows… “Living amongst the immense musical talent in a city like Chicago is eternally inspiring. But standing apart from the crowd can be a never-ending challenge. So Canasta came together in early 2002 when six friends joined forces and augmented the standard rock set‐up with piano, violin, keyboard and trombone, in an effort to craft a more ambitious strain of majestic, ultra‐melodic, orchestral pop”. The band is composed of 6 friends:
Jeremy Beckford – guitar / vocals
Sarah Kneebone – piano / keyboard / vocals
Elizabeth Lindau – vocals / violin / percussion
Brian Palmieri – drums
Matt Priest – vocals / bass / trombone / percussion
Ryan Tracy – keyboard / piano / bass / vocals
Every member brings their talents and enthusiasm to create a well-rounded, very talented up and coming band. “Maybe it’s my ability to pester people to help get stuff done. I’m good and networking when I have time to network. I also do a lot of band administration” Says Elizabeth. The band is connected to all the right places, and in turn, has a strong and growing network of fans across the globe. I would not be surprised to see Canasta playing at festivals around America within a year, Look Out Sasquatch! Stay close to the band by following them on Twitter.
