“Nothing short of pyrotechnic display of dazzling virtuosity by four highly imaginative and gifted musicians.”
“These four talented musicians have the skill to make music of the highest quality look easy. They play together with complete trust.”
With responses as above since launching in 2009, it is no surprise that Beyondsemble has shot into the limelight on the local festival scene and is receiving attention offshore. Not long back from a successful European trip, the band is preparing for a nationwide tour - once again featuring an eclectic mix of original and improvised music merging Celtic, Latin, jazz and gypsy rhythm, all executed with consummate skill and infectious enthusiasm.
Featured on this upcoming tour is a change of line-up to include the multi-talented Jon Sanders (guitar, ukulele, bouzouki, vocals) in place of original guitarist Mark Mazengarb, presently pursuing his passion for American guitar music in the United States, and John Ellis on saxophone and clarinet. Continuing with Beyondsemble is founder Craig Denham (accordion, piano, whistles, vocals) and Chris Koole (cajon, percussion, lead vocals).
Beyondsemble launched its debut album, Beyondsemble in September 2011 to excellent reviews.
