Instrumental music can often be a hard type of music to wrap your ear around. Governed by balance, those who are more inclined to move towards showy virtuosity will not make it in this world. Often carrying a sonic narrative vocals are very much an important part to the musical puzzle, when you take them away you need to compensate. Sitting somewhere between the two lie Long Distance Calling. Hailing from Germany the band are predominantly a four piece instrumental band yet flirt from time to time with vocals. Tonight the band bring their sound to the Boston Music Rooms.
The best laids plans of mice and men often go awry. Arriving bright eyed and bushy tailed for tonight’s performance it seems that perhaps our Norwegian’s don’t share quite the same enthusiasm. Annoyingly the band are stuck in traffic after some problems in transit but at last arrive at the slightly later than planned time. Normally not being an issue but as we are treated to three bands on tonight’s bill it does cause some problems for some.
