Mesozoic String Theory performs in Kanab March 16
Desert Dog Productions invites everyone to the Crescent Moon Theater on Saturday, March 16, to attend “String Theory,” a musical collaboration between local rockers Mesozoic, the Kanab Middle School and Kanab High School string groups Bravo and Encore.
Mesozoic pays tribute to full-tilt, guitar-heavy classic rock. With Alan Titus on guitar and lead vocals, Kim Titus on bass and background vocals, Mark Fullerton on drums, and violinist extraordinaire, Linda DeLuca, the band covers songs from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Kansas, The Eagles, Rush, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Beatles.
The Titus duo has been part of Kanab’s musical landscape for many years. Linda DeLuca, a Julliard graduate, and Mark Fullerton, former drummer of the progressive metal band, Mind Over Four, each bring years of professional recording and international touring experience to the group.
Bravo and Encore, under the direction of Linda DeLuca, will partner with Mesozoic for a set. “String Theory” will produce an array of full and vibrant sounds, ranging from contemporary classical to classic rock. The fusion of violins, violas and cellos with rock band instruments is at the forefront of recent musical expressions. Classic rock bands such as Kansas and Rush have played and toured with full orchestras and small string sections. Other groups, such as the Piano Guys and Escala, have fused pop sound with classical strings instrumentation.
