SC BACH and the ONE ROAD OVER MELODICA ENSEMBLE team up at THE BOHEMIAN CAFE TONIGHT at 7 pm to take the music of JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH to unexpected places!

You may think you’ve heard the beautiful music of BACH interpreted every way there is, but SC BACH, the Upstate Bach appreciation society and Asheville’s ONE ROAD OVER MELODICA ENSEMBLE beg to differ.

TONIGHT at 7pm in THE BOHEMIAN CAFE (doors open at 5:30), the Ensemble will perform Bach’s music on melodica, an unusual, tuneful instrument that is both charmingly light and more complex than it seems.

What members of One Road Over have in common is their love of playing music with other musicians, their curiosity about every kind of music, and their willingness to arrange and re-arrange all kinds of music for their own instruments. As a result, when they discovered they had a common interest in playing the melodica, it was inevitable that they form yet another band. The name alludes to the fact that although none had even heard of the melodica until 5 years ago, their love for the sounds and capabilities of the melodica leads them to travel a road that is parallel to one they’ve been on, but not one they ever expected to find.

  • ADVENT LAUREATE Mini Tower Speakers
    amazing sound, brilliant natural refined listening experience. woofers on both speakers just completely rebuilt better than new! The Advents, both large and small, sounded pretty good and gave excellent value for the money. The company was one of a long string of companies that descended from the original Acoustic Research (AR). Advents eventually lost their enormous popularity and nearly faded away. International Jensen, a company based in the Chicago suburbs, rescued Advent and resurrected it. The Advent model we tested deserves a Ph.D. Advent appropriately names it the Laureate. The Laureate overwhelmed my skepticism that a modestly priced floor-standing loudspeaker could deliver good sound […]

    8 tweeters, 1 midrange and 2 woofers per. all original, very clean. extremely rare and VERY AMAZING sound! […]
    The essentially crossoverless design gives the 901 an unmistakable coherence, the model’s greatest strength. Its incredibly wide dispersion comes in a close second. The Bose 901s sound great anywhere in the room, After extensive listening, the Bose 901s strike me as being damn good. They have some limitations, but don’t all $1,400 speakers? For that matter, what $10,000 speakers are perfect? They are so smooth and musical. […]
