Meet The Parovivas:
We are THRILLED to have The Party Faithfulperform The Beatles’ “Because” in our EPIC Talent Show Fundraiser! “Because” has the most complex vocal harmony of any Beatles’ song. There are reports that it was inspired by Yoko playing The Moonlight Sonata for John. Dubious. This piece, (like Rufus Wainwright’s cover of Across The Universe), has gained in popularity over time due to the extraordinary rendition by the doomed uni-polar depressive Elliot Smith.Brooklyn’s The Party Faithful formed when Patrick Harmon (vocals, guitar) and Erica D’Andrea Gray (bass, vocals) combined their affection for post-punk-tinged anthemic rock with their affection for each other – they married soon after. The band has grown to a party of four with the additions of Karen Hou (piano, vocals) and drummer Pat Morin.
Whether on tape or on stage, the party pours forth lush emotion, lyrical labyrinths and soaring riffs, winning hearts and minds at shows across the city and along the northeast corridor. They’ve released the rollicking “Seven Cycles” EP, landed a track on Blast Radius’ 2009 compilation of Brooklyn bands you need to hear, and in January 2012 they unveiled their latest album, “Gold Light” (now available on iTunes and at shows.)
