Minor Mishap Marching Band
MINOR MISHAP MARCHING BAND is a 25 piece renegade circus brass band. We are an absurd expression of boisterous pandemonium– Bourbon street meets Budapest.
SORNE (with aerialists)
Born at the highest point of elevation in the Panhandle, right up against an Indian burial ground, Morgan Sorne grew up with dreams of Indians coming out of the woods surrounding his home. Music and Christianity encircled him as a child. The latter, he grew out of. The first, he embraced. His mother, an opera singer, enrolled him in a music program after her voice coach suggested it. Sorne remembers hating it profoundly even at the age of three, but after throwing a rock at a kid's face, his days at the school for the gifted ended. Music never left him.
In the last few years, Sorne has written over 80 songs. The first 13 were released in 2011 in his debut album, House of Stone, and he's working on the rest to be released in a series of chapters, one for each of the five siblings, the star characters of the House of Stone saga: First Born. Second Son. Black Sister. Little Brother. Blue Sister.
Set in no particular time or place, the story speaks of family relationships, focusing on the death of the father and highlighting Sorne's obsession with the Divine Mother. House of Stone grew in his mind for years, the characters initially born as direct reflections of his mother and her siblings. House of Stone evolved from childhood views of family into characters with a life of their own, each representing, in Sorne's words, "archetypes of the human condition." Today, SORNE the band includes Morgan, Kevin Naquin and Deano—no last name, just Deano—along with a production team that brings Sorne's music and visual artistry to life.
This past summer, SORNE caught the attention of Kyp Malone, Tunde Adebimpe and Jaleel Bunton of TV on the Radio and were asked to open for them on a short tour, performing to sold-out crowds at such prestigious venues as The Fillmore in Miami Beach, House of Blues in Orlando, Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, Jannus Live in St.Petersburg and Cains Ballroom in Tulsa,OK., amongst others.
SORNE performed over 50 shows in 20 cities last year including sharing
bills with international acts Dillon Francis, Keller Williams, Dawes, Blitzen
Trapper, Avi Buffalo, Art vs. Science and Rubblebucket. A film based on the story behind the album House of Stone is set to premiere at SXSW this year, along with new music. SORNE is poised to make 2012 a break out year.
