I recently caught up with the guitarist from a new and exciting band,The Celebration Army, that is causing quite a stir at “Voice Box Live Towers”(wherever that is!),and did some investigating…..
-How long have you been together?
N: Just coming up on our 1 year anniversary!
– Can you introduce us to the members-who plays which instrument?
Oliver Pigott – vocals
Nelson Sobral – guitars & back up vocals
Leo Motta – bass & back up vocals
Troy Larabie – drums
There’s a strong r&b feel to your songs, what are your influences?
N: We were raised on a steady diet of blues, early r&b and soul music i.e. Stax, Motown.
N: Thanks! That’s down to our innate chemistry thankfully! As to what the song’s about you would have to ask Ollie who writes all the lyrics!
– Describe your typical gig!
N: it starts with a crash and a bang, we sweat alot, groove our asses off and then its over and we’re left smiling and satisfied.
– You appear to be using only certain download sites ..is there a strategy here?
N: Youtube & Soundcloud seem to be the most used for streaming.
– Do you stream your music?
N: Sure. Soundcloud & Youtube you can stream all of our releases
– Would the “Talent Show” route be one you would consider?
N: I’m personally not a fan but whatever floats your boat!
