Saint David's House Band at Rockwood Music Hall
This past Sunday, Saint David’s own house band, Cascade, rocked the Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, sharing the bill with The Blazers from St. Bernards. The band members are Julian C., guitar and vocals, Finn D., vocals, Brij G., piano, Sean O., drums, Charlie U., guitar/vocals, and Teddy W., bass.
The band, which has been practicing every Friday afternoon at our school, presented eight songs for the standing room only audience. Among them were a beautiful rendition of Stand By Me, by the late Ben E. King, and Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix.
As Music Chair Jeff Moore reports, "Each member of the band soloed in at least one tune, and their professional polish was evident to all who were in attendance." The band is coached by Mr. Ben Kogan, who teaches guitar and piano at Saint David's.
