Funk, Rock, and Reggae with The Get Right Band

The Get Right Band

The Asheville-based funk/rock/reggae band The Get Right Band is guitarist singer Silas Durocher, his longtime bassist pal Jesse Gentry, and drummer Chris Pyle—and yes, if the words “drummer” and “Pyle” ring a bell, turns out that Chris is related to rock n roll royalty. His dad is former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Thomas Delmer “Artimus” Pyle. Get Right’s got a new album out: The Get Right Band, and they’ll bring several selections to the Triad next weekend at Bull’s Tavern in Winston-Salem Friday night at 10:00PM.

Music Director Dmitry Sitkovetsky Plays with the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra for Two Performances

Violinist and Music Director of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra.

Triad Arts as Broadcast at 8:35am and 5:44pm

In April of 2002 a renowned Russian violinist was invited to perform Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin with the Greensboro Symphony. That performance left a lasting impression. The chemistry between soloist and orchestra was just right, and the following year the guest artist was appointed Music Director of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra. It’s a position Dmitry Sitkovetsky holds to this day, and this week he joins the orchestra once more as soloist performing Beethoven’s amazing concerto. Dmitry spoke with David Ford by phone from his studio in London, and he began by asking him about his musical use of time in his 2004 recording of the Beethoven Concerto with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St, Martin in the Fields.
