Vitrolum Republic and Sad Daddy
December 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm$25
The Vitrolum Republic’s style has blended styles from American roots and folk music with elements of blues, rock, singer-songwriter and classical genres. Over time their style has evolved, whether by new influences, collaborations or through experimentation in the studio or in live performances. Their characteristic sound starts with the musicians themselves, led by brothers Jordan and Nick Waraksa, classically-trained violin and piano players respectively, who together, applied their musicianship to songwriting in order to create and not just perform. Joined by Chuck Lawton on bass and guitar and Benjamin Schaefer on percussion, their full ensemble creates a mood unlike no other, taking the listener on a journey through the themes that embody their music.
Arkansas’s own Sad Daddy produces a beautiful blend of traditional bluegrass and folk musicianship and stagecraft. However, it is the songwriting that remains as the cornerstone of the group’s allure and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.
