Our mistake. The mixing engineer The Heroic Enthusiasts contact was *Mick Guzauski,* a Rochester native who worked on Daft Punk's latest album "Random Access Memories."
Mick Kawalski [Daft Punk]?
Thank you, Frank and John and all of you incredible luthiers who have been so supportive of each other. Rochester has much to be proud of not only in the lutherie skills, but in the way the music community here supports each other. Of particular note for me are Amanda Ashley, Tommy Bianchi of the Coupe de Villes, Matt Rammerman,The Firehouse Saloon, The Thirsty Frog, Richmond's, Johnny's Irish Pub, The Lovin' Cup... I could go on and on with people and places who have taken me under their wing and provided me with opportunity to display and demo my craft... Yes, indeed. Rochester's music community has much to be proud of and I have much and many to be thankful for. Greg Bogoshian. RockBeach Guitars...
Great article about a little-known aspect of Rochester's music scene. City rocks!
The person who took the photo is an artist as well—so it's not the worst thing in the world if you took note of his name as well as his craft.
This was a great article. I had no idea we had all these guys in Rochester. Nice job Frank and photography team!
Hey Bruce, thanks for the comment! We're currently working with our website developer on some tweaks to our site (the way photo captions are displayed being one of them). The "styling" of the captions is determined site-wide, so it's the same formatting on every article (i.e. we can't change JUST this article). Thanks for the feedback, though, and I'm glad you enjoyed the article & photos!
Holy cow, isn't that quite picky? I had no problem reading the captions of the pictures and knowing immediately who the guitar maker was and who the photographer was.
Very nice article. The photos are excellent but I would suggest that they be labeled with the artist's name in bold and on top and the photographers name less bold and below.
Was here while James was playing and absolutely loved him!!
They put on such a fantastic show at Abilene last night! My ears are still ringing. I agree that they are one of the most righteous live bands ever. EVER!
My Mom always said if you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all!
I've heard this band play. So impressive. Well worth hearing.
If you conduct a concert and if you think that the concert was good that should only be the view for yourself.You should not depend on others for views as everyone opinion is different.
I saw him at Hatch hall. I thought he was super.
I just heard the concert tonight (Saturday). I do not agree with the above review, Especially regarding the performance of the Violin Concerto. I have performed this concerto many times. Quint's phrasing was odd and uncomfortable to listen to. His playing was not in the Romantic style. I regret to say that although his playing was extremely virtuosic, it was at the same time rather messy. I was so looking forward to hearing the Saint-Saens, but I was disappointed with his rendition. He had many intonation issues and his tempos were all over the place. The slow sections in the first movement were too slow and the slow movement was too fast as were the slow sections in the third movement. Also, Quint sped up and slowed down in places that were inappropriate. That is why neither the orchestra nor the conductor could follow him exactly all of the time. On the contrary, I thought that the RPO did a wonderful job with both pieces on the first half! Unfortunately, I could not stay for the second half.
Great band. Seen them at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC back in December. Tunes are catchy and uplifting. On the level of Coldplay, U2, Radiohead but with a newer twist and direction. Captivating.
What a great band and a great group of guys. I'm excited to hear the new stuff and can't wait for the show. Keep it up guys! Bring some CD's and stickers and whatnot this time.
Dude I feel it too! Riiiiiighteousss.
