Return of Simple at IPO NY 2010
IPO NY has come and gone and I guess I'm a little disappointed. I knew that being booked for a Sunday evening wasn't going to be great but the turnout for our performance was almost non-existant! The only people in the place were either our friends or the other bands who were also waiting to perform (to an empty house).
One consolation though, I saw a GREAT band! Not the usual pop fare but a jazzy trio (piano, bass & drums) called Return of Simple.
Rob Kovacs (pianist, vocalist and songwriter) crafts beautifully intricate (yet very listenable) songs reminiscent of Coldplay on one hand and Bruce Hornsby on the other.
I urge you all to check out their music. They are AWESOME!
