In case you hadn’t heard, Matt and Jill are occasionally recruited to lend their musical chops to the tribute collective known as The Rock Orchestra (TRO).
While TRO has focused on mostly classic rock albums, here we venture firmly into the ’80s by presenting two albums Listen Like Thieves and Kick by seminal band INXS.
Jill will be singing, and will also be playing saxophone, percussion, and guitar (!) for this show; and Matt will be singing, playing sax, and guitar as well. It’s gonna be sweeeeeet.
Other band members for this show include Joe Trainor on vocals, Christine Duncan on bass and vocals, Jim Miller on keyboards, Matt Urban on drums and the super-awesome Michael Feuda on lead guitar. It’s a great band, and rehearsals have been a blast.
Jill admits that she didn’t know many INXS songs beyond the radio hits, but HOLY CRAP they are a great freakin’ band with killer songs– it’s been a joy to explore this music and recreate it for everyone.
Even if you’re unfamiliar, give it a shot– you’ll dig it, we promise.
