The Response in Maynard

  • Maynard Golf Course 50 Brown Street (Route 27) Maynard, MA, 01754 United States (map)

Modern retro rock

The band’s unusual instrumentation, timbres, and diverse musicality offer up a sonic journey for the ears that weave and wander through the styles of progressive atmospheric rock, rock/blues, improv, and world influences. With a nod to the classic era of the 70’s and a sound that is both new and yet familiar, they spin crafted lyrical tales that explore such diverse topics as environmental concerns, international conflict, interpersonal human relationships — and one story of an aging dog sitting on a porch.

The core of the band¹s music germinates through Jic Davis and the hypnotic sound of his “batar” (an electric guitar/bass hybrid instrument). Using a combination of tapping and strumming techniques, this instrument weaves a web of root-rumbling lows and sparkling highs. Vocalist Emilie Faucher fronts the band with authenticity, powerful poetic lyrics, and a magnetic open-hearted energy. Mac Ritchey brings an unusual instrument to the mix, the electric oud. This modern imagining of the ancient Arabic lute is routed through guitar pedals, effects, and a looping device, creating synthesizer-like textures and sonic atmospheres. Percussionist Jon Golden anchors the quintet with a rock steady groove and stylistic versatility, while guitarist George Middleton¹s melodic playing and colorful support are a perfect match for this song-driven ensemble.

When The Response performs, the audience can immediately feel their kinship emanating from the stage, a ­ truly infectious joy that gets you on your feet dancing.
