MP3 Bogs Visionary Orchestra - Recession Special

Old-timey Country with contemporary wit, intelligible lyrics and emotive orchestration.

11 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Traditional Country, COUNTRY: Country Rock

Bogs Visionary Orchestra combines the anthem like melodies of old-time Country music with contemporary wit. Their music hints at the surreal yet is imbued with simple honesty and heartfelt zeal. The sounds of banjo, lap steel and harmonica become the soundscape for lyrical stories that convey the joys and plights of modern life. With songs like "E-Mailin'' Gal" and "War Recession Remix" their music sits somewhere suspended between the Great Depression and the New Recession.

What someone said about our debut at CBGB''s-
I was personally amazed with "Bogs Visionary Orchestra". Their music took me back to the olden days with exceptional romance and enchantment. I was glad to have heard them, they totally took me by surprise. I hope they play again at CBGB''s. Congrats for an awesome show and for bringing "Bogs Visionary Orchestra". John

What someone said about our debut CD-
I enjoyed your album "enormously" and listened to it most of the night. The Visionary Orchestra is really a great big orchestra and the sound is fabulous. And (although friends argue about that) I love your voice. I was surprised to see you working with Bliss Blood of Pain Teens and more recently The Moonlighters, and with DJ Kenny Mitchell. The songs are ''almost serious'' and the lyrics are critical in an intelligible way. "Chapeau" (my hat off to you) as they say in France!This record will end up high on my "best of" list of 2003.

What someone said about our Whitney Museum show-
One of my favorite moments from the night at the Whitney was the performance of "War Recession blues" complete with audience participation. I usually hate sing-alongs & audience participation bits but you guys pulled it off and more. I just can''t get over how excellent you guys were. The stage presence of the entire band was everything the music required. I haven''t witnessed such an aggregation of on-stage cool since the halcyon days of Sir Douglas Quintet w/Augie Meyer. I would have bet my boots that you guys all hailed from Austin, but I understand that like another great cowboy singer, Charles Adnopoz aka Ramblin'' Jack Elliot, you guys are from Brooklyn. I would have wound up going barefoot into the night on that bet. Tex

I see your face
Many faces
Some with hope
Some without

I listen to your tune
Before you hum it
And put words to your melody

I sing it
And you sing with me
The cheers of many
Brothers and sisters
Who don''t feel alone
Because you took the risk
And sang out of tune!
